Ida Jane, a near-look alike to famed racer Rachel Alexandra and a daughter of 2004 Preakness Stakes runner up Rock Hard Ten, has joined us at A Pinch of Luck to find a home of her very own. Unlike her famous daddy and look alike "shirt tail" relative, this cute filly failed to set the track on fire and retired from racing with earnings just over $2000 in twelve starts. Lucky for Ida Jane, she retired sound and happy and ready to move on to a new career.... (read more)
Ida has been with us since just before Christmas and has settled in well. She's an easy going filly to work with and is one who never gives anyone any trouble. She's great for grooming, easy in the cross ties, ships great, and is absolutely wonderful for the farrier.
She's just started working under saddle after having some time to settle in, and in the tack, she's green but not at all complicated to ride. Her gaits are very easy to ride, and with just a little work, this lovely young lady should excel at any discipline. She works nicely in just a French link snaffle and gives the impression of being a quick learner with a nice work ethic. She clearly likes having a job, and though she doesn't yet have a clue about being a civilian horse yet, she's willing and works very hard to understand what's asked of her.
Ida Jane is a really nice filly to work with and should easily retrain to any new career field. She's confident and athletic enough that a job as an eventer or trail super star would surely be up her alley, but pretty enough to show well as a hunter or jumper. She sports a lovely uphill build and should easily engage for work in dressage, and is kind enough that being nothing more than a buddy to her new person would probably be just fine with her, too!
