Advice on finding new home for wonderful OTTB
Hey there folks--we have a beautiful and sweet 11 yr OTTB gelding we purchased as our first horse a year ago for our 14yr old daughter. He is 16 hands, and wouldn't you know she grew 3 inches in the past year and is too tall for him (5'9"!). He is great on the flat and a beautiful mover; we bought him as a hunter jumper but its not his thing--he gets anxious and tense over fences, despite being a beautiful jumper. He needs an experienced rider who is fine w flat work, maybe wants to teach him some dressage moves, but doesn't intend to show at HJ shows. He is good on the ground, good w vet/farrier/loading. He is a sweet gentle soul who needs new job with a shorter rider. Because of his anxiety over fences and at shows, and our inexperience in the horse biz, I am at a loss on how to repurpose/relocate him. Thanks for any advice or guidance! we live in North Carolina.
