Marvin is an 8 year old thoroughbred gelding, 16.1 hands and gorgeous! Despite his registered name, Marvin is a sweetheart with great manners and a good brain! His current owner adopted him through TPR 5 years ago but due to personal reasons, needs to rehome him.
Marvin is looking for a wonderful forever home with someone who can really enjoy his athleticism and willing attitude. He is presently being ridden on the flat and has potential to be a really nice local show prospect. Marvin had a hairline fracture to his sesamoid when he retired from racing after 5 starts almost 5 years ago. He was given ample time and the proper care to heal and that injury has never caused any issue since. He is a great trail ride and ships often and well. He would be best suited for an intermediate or advanced rider.
Marvin has great ground manners and no vices. He is an easy keeper and happily turns out with other horse friends. He tends to be a leader in the field but never displays any Ã¢â‚¬Å“punk likeÃ¢â‚¬Â¯ attitudes with others! He is currently barefoot and does well like that. Obviously for more active training like jumping, shoes would be beneficial. He is a KY bred by Cozzene out of a Salt Lake mare.
Marvin is currently residing just outside of Atlantic City, NJ. He is priced at $1500 to an excellent forever home. Please contact me for more information on this horse.
