"Brienne" is a 3 year old, 16.2 hand, bay filly that has BIG written all over her! She retired sound and very sane (a real 1 on the temperament scale). Having raced about 11 times, it seems she was outclassed after she broke her maiden, and could not compete with other winners. She was reported to be as quiet (and slow!) at the track as she has been in our barn, which is nearly a 1 on the temperament scale!
Brienne was evaluated by our vet. She's in great shape other than her feet needing time and good farrier work to get her angles where they should be. The longer she's here, the more we'll get them in shape. But she has tough enough feet that she's done very well barefoot!
Brienne is sound and will be fantastic for any discipline from lazy days trail riding to high level competition. There's really no limit on her potential, but she is a big three year old who we would like to see someone start slowly as she is nowhere near done growing!
We have started Brienne under saddle and she is an amazing ride for being so green. Nice, low, natural headset. She has a lovely hind end, great movement, and is very level headed. With the weather being a bit ugly, we've had to trailer her to an indoor. She's handled the mirrors, other horses schooling over fences around her, and trailering like a pro. She is going to be one amazing horse. Brienne has been ridden walk/trot/canter and on trails and is doing very well.

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.
