Get to Know Adoptable Horse Disney

Registered as “Reanimate” with the Jockey Club, Disney is a 2013 tall, dark and handsome war horse with a sweet personality. He will make a great pleasure partner with an intermediate rider looking to enjoy a low-level lifestyle with him.

On the ground, Disney is a gentleman and a prince. He respects personal space, picks up his feet nicely, enjoys being groomed, behaves for his visits with the vet and farrier, and is calm in the cross ties.

Disney had a long life at the track, racing through his 10-year-old year, but is beginning to adjust to turnout with a friend. He does best with a short amount of turnout with a pasture mate and then being stalled.

In the saddle, Disney has been doing well in training at the walk, trot, and canter. He’s quiet and reasonable to work with. Disney will do best in a pleasure-type home with an intermediate rider who is looking to do casual riding or hit the trails.

Disney requires no special dietary needs. He can crib in his stall, but it is controlled with a cribbing collar. Disney had a long, successful racing career, so he deserves an adopter who is willing to provide the maintenance needed to keep him comfortable to excel in his new home. CANTER Michigan feels he will continue to do well with hock injections and Osphos to control his kissing spine on an as needed basis. Like many Thoroughbreds, he has thin soles and low heels, so he does best in shoes with pads all around.

Any medical records and pertinent history CANTER Michigan has on their horses are available to interested and approved adopters. CANTER Michigan always recommends a pre-purchase exam.

Potential adopters must complete an adoption application and be approved by CANTER Michigan prior to viewing and/or adopting a horse. Please review their adoption process and complete an application here. There is no cost or obligation, and approval applies to all horses in the CANTER Michigan program. Please note that completing an application is not a guarantee of approval. Contact CANTER Michigan today about ASPCA Right Horse Adoptable Horse of the Week, Disney!
