Gray. Handsome. Sound for any discipline. Durazno is a pretty special guy. He was a warhorse on the track, racing over 7 years & retiring with 78 starts under his belt. He came into our retraining program earlier this year, and we gelded him. He has since been turned out with other geldings and stabled next to mares with no issues. We have not turned him out in a mixed herd or with mares yet.
A rider who is confident on a forward horse and has a balanced seat will be his best match.... (read more) With no physical limitations, he would be suitable for any discipline including jumping, eventing, or dressage. He is very forward and has taken to jumping quite well. He’s a brave guy & really likes to get to work.
Durazno loves his turnout time so an adopter who can offer him lots of paddock time is a must. He’s currently barefoot. He has been getting some trail & off the property experiences. He recently went to his first dressage show where he did great & brought home a third place ribbon!
We know there is someone out there who can appreciate a big gray warhorse, & help him take his athleticism & his hardworking attitude to the next level.
All the horses in our retraining program come fully vetted, with test rides for qualified adopters, and with 30-day trial periods. We are a non-profit specializing in retraining ex-racehorses beyond the track, & we are accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.
See more photos & lots of videos of Durazno on the Friends of Ferdinand website!
He is currently located near Dayton, OH.
