Get to Know Adoptable Horse Cabre

Cabre is a 7-year-old off-track Thoroughbred (OTTB). He is smart, charming, gentle and full of personality as big as his 16.3hh body. Cabre was transferred to HART in the fall of 2021, where he spent a little time adjusting to being gelded. Once he settled, he became a very in-your-pocket horse, loving a lot of attention.

Cabre leads, ground ties and loads easily. He will stand at the cross ties all day if asked and doesn’t move when switching from the halter to the bridle. He is built more like a quarter horse than a Thoroughbred — truly a ‘Big Red.’ He gets along with everyone in the pasture (even the minis), trailers like a dream, and stands calmly for the vet and farrier. He is very special and a barn favorite.

He is being ridden western, is easy under the saddle and walks, trots and canters on voice command. He walks over any obstacle and will walk through any body of water. Nothing fazes him — not even fireworks on the 4th of July. Cabre is HART’s go-to horse when doing liberty clinics in front of crowds. He would do very well at working equitation, competitive trail riding and Western/English pleasure.

But most of all, Cabre just loves being the center of someone’s universe (as he deserves). He requires front shoes and has a special, padded shoe on his right front (comes with lifetime supplies of his 3D pad). Come meet this gentle giant — you’re sure to fall in love with him.
