This is "Brego" as in Strider's horse in Lord of the Rings, right? Regal name! I have a 29 year old retired SB who was a super jumper and trail horse post track, and is now a cuddly sweet pet. Have fun!

Iv reschooled a few Standis that came off the track, exallent learners and will give their heart and soul if given the chance. The more you work with them the better they get, (can apply to any horse) but I feel Standis can be a little sensitive and need a little time. As long as they understand what you want they will do it if possible.
You can go a loooooong way with a little TLC & Patience.
Oh, it can help to have an old tug boat horse with the first few times you hit the trail, helps to keep em calm and build up the self confidence.
Remember, Standis are movers, so let em take the lead, if he comes to a bawlk turn back to the ol tug boater and hitch a ride behind, once pass the imagined danger they will usely want too take the lead again.
Happy Trails

Love, Love, Standies! I had wanted a horse for so long growing up, one to call my own. My parents wouldn't ever let me have one, so shortly after turning 18, I sold my car and bought a 17hh Standardbred mare. She was spooky, but gave her heart and soul to do what was asked, even if she was afraid. I lost her about 4 years ago and get choked up still about her.

So glad that Brego has a new loving home with you! Congratulations on your new best friend! Beautiful prince!

I love his face! I, too, am a Standardbred owner. I was always a QH or Paint person... until I got my Standardbred... I don't think I will ever own another breed. She is the greatest horse I have ever had.

He looks really stocky in the legs- lots of bone. Almost draft-like. I bet he will be good at anything you ask of him. They tend to be very versatile.
