Peach is a beautiful young lady born in 2016 with unlimited potential. She stands at 16.3hh as an OTTB. She has an intelligent kind eye and very sweet face. She really captures your attention and has a lovely brightness about her, while remaining calm and collected. Her current owner would love to see her go to a teen or program where teens could enjoy her. A sweet story is that her owner is a huge thoroughbred lover. At the age of 16 her off the track thoroughbred that she took on really helped her through those challenging years. She would love to see Peach do the same for someone else. Peach is bright and athletic and would likely fit perfectly into the Hunter/Jumper or Eventing world. Her current owner would consider out of state for the right person but would rather her stay somewhat local.
Peach is a easy keeper with no medical conditions or issues. She did have a slight bowed tendon on the front right but is fully healed. She returned to racing for one more year after the fact. It should not impede or interfere with her new career. As long as someone takes the time to start her the right way and bring her a long steadily and slowly with regards to fitness and conditioning. Peach will need an advanced rider and or trainer initially. She knows the basics but is still green.
Peach is a complete blank slate. She came off the track and retired from racing in Fall of 2020. Her owner took her on so that she could rest and recoup for one year, and just get to be a horse. She had hoped to be able to start her again under saddle and enjoy her, but her facilities are only set for rehab and non-riding work. Her owner feels that she has much to give to a new person, and she therefore has made the tough decision to part with her so that she can fulfill along happy riding life with somebody special. Her current owner has provided a lovely safe quiet home for her, and she hopes that the new person will enjoy her as much as she has.
We met Peach in her field. She was very sweet and easy to catch and groom. She walked in hand wonderfully and has excellent ground manners. She was very willing and engaged. She was calm, collected and ready for anything we asked of her. She is still young and a thoroughbred, so it was noted that if she was taken into a barn area or to a new place she may be much more animated in the beginning. With time and adjustment, regular handling and work, she will settle right back into her usual wonderful self.
Peach is up to date with vaccinations, Coggins, feet trimming and all the good stuff that’s required to be sent off on her way. She is currently on 24 hour turn out and is fine with geldings or mares. She is very neutral in the herd. She is fine in a stall also and is quite easygoing when she is in her routine.
