11 y/o OTTB for Lease in FL
We're in the Tampa Bay area, Dover to be exact, and I'm looking to lease out Ice. Just like the title says, he's an 11 year old OTTB, on the track for nine years, and this is really the first time anyone has ridden him without wanting to go super-fast. He loads, ties, stands for vet and farrier, has no problem with clippers, have never seen him spook at anything....the list goes on. I plan on riding him mainly on the trails and probably want to take some lessons at a later date.
I'm really looking for someone who can use him and give him a job. He needs to be ridden every day or at least every other day, and I can't be out there all of the time to do that for him. He's at the perfect age where he can be trained and won't completely lose his head. He definitely needs an intermediate rider, he can be pushy/testy. For 200 a month you can pretty much go out to the barn where he's boarded at whenever, and we split any vet costs he racks up. If you want to shoe him, you'd pay the difference; right now he's barefoot. If you choose to show him, you pay the entry fees and stuff like that.
He is a cribber, and he does have some trust issues, so he will be pushy if he can be. All of his pics are in my profile.
