Well, we have our standardbred Clary just on free lease.
He is a 15.1hh, 16 year old ex-pacer. He does waddle, in any pace faster than a walk, but he has a trot and canter to die for. He was a very good pacer, and competed successfully around the country. I'd have to try and get his papers off his owner to tell you his race name and brand. He is a dark bay, with a tiny white circle on his right hind leg, a few white hairs resembling the shape of a star on his forehead, and white raincald scarring up his back. As he is getting on, we just use him for a trail horse, I have tried him in jumping and he doesn't like it at all. Dressage...well...he needs to not waddle, but he's gorgeous to me anyway.
In my opinion, standardbreds are one breed of horse that have such a beautiful, kind, loving nature.
