So, it's my 16th birthday on the 11th of August and Mum agreed that she would get my my own horse, I've had 1 horse (he was an OTTSTB) and have leased 3 horses. The horse we were looking at did not pass his vet check (had sarcoids, and was not the age he was advertised as) so we are still looking.
A good friend of mine sent me a message on Facebook saying her horses daughter was for free to good home (her horse was a stallion in his racing years) she doesn't have much info but is giving me some more this afternoon, all I know so far is that she is 3 years old, around 15.2hh and is dead quiet just like her Dad. I am interested but to be honest don't know much about retraining tbs, I retrained my STB gelding straight ott and he was a dream horse to do anything with, and a pony club star, but I do know Standies are very different to tbs. I am wanting as much info as possible on what I should do to retrain this filly if I do get her, I have been riding for 7 years and I've done anything and everything, but I'm not going to overrate my riding abilities and say I have extreme experience with retraining, cos to be honest- I haven't, although with this horse being free to good home, I have the money to get a trainer to help me out and I will also be getting a vet check done as I know a lot of racehorses come ott with injuries. Thanks guys, hope that's not too much to read :)
