Sole is a VERY quiet, calm, gentle, kind gelding who has a lot to give. After an injury he suffered at the track, he is limited to flat work only. He is sound for walk/trot/canter on the flat and is a great ride with a true rocking horse canter.
We would really like to see this horse go to a therapy home and as such we have worked to desensitize him. We have worked in a round pen bouncing balls off him, asking him to walk over and under tarps, with tarps wrapped around him, deal with umbrellas, and riders who ride sideways and backwards and he took it ALL in stride. All that said, he's excellent on the ring but does not have much trail experience.
This horse is already ready for a therapy home where he would be on a lead line. We've ridden him English and Western with no problems. Ridden alone in the ring he is great, but if using him as a lesson horse his new trainer would probably benefit from giving him a week or so of attention to get him into his new routine. We have plenty of videos of this horse on our Facebook page which you can get to through our website. Please give him a look!
Sole cross-ties, single ties and almost ground ties. Great for the farrier/vet/etc. Up to date on everything, and ready to go!
Sole will go to a good home only. Adoption application and references are required.
We will ship upon request at $1.50/mile.

After the Races -
A rehabbing and rehoming facility for retired Thoroughbred race horses, here at After the Races we have several nice OTTBs in need of great homes. Adoption fees are low and these horses are capable of going on to any discipline. Right now we have horses who would make fantastic trail or lesson mounts as well as those who could go on to high level showing. Many great projects. Please consider adopting today!
