I own a horse that was meant to be raced, but he was too slow and lazy and had no inspirational to run fast. His name is Mustard. Good slow quite horse, only 6 years old. So far hes spooked twice with me but over general things that i dont blame him for as hes slightly green. Theres a ottb in the paddock next to him, His name is Mucho(pronounced mooch-o) and he has only been off track 6 or so months and his rider knows her stuff but he is amazing, he jumps like a pro and hes so friendly when i pat him and say hello. He gets a little hot but hes in capable hands. A little more work and hes going to go a long way.
When i bought my tb, i was in the same boat as you. tbs are 'known to be strong, hot and spooky', can i actually do it? I'm so glad I said yes, Mustard has become my best friend and my partner. So thoroughbreds in general are a great breed worth taking a look at. just be careful as a few can get hot and take your time buying one, dont rush into anything :) goodluck!
