Adoptable Horse: Our Son, a 3-year-old 15.3hh Thoroughbred gelding
Organization: Second Stride, Prospect, Ky.

Get to Know Adoptable Horse Our Son

A 3-year-old Thoroughbred gelding bred in Kentucky, Our Son is by Mastery (a son of Candy Ride) and out of Glossy, by Broken Vow.

Our Son never raced or trained to race due to conformation (turned front legs). He is suitable for low to moderate intensity riding in non-speed competition disciplines, but he will not be suitable for more than low level jumping.

Our Son is a lovely gelding — calm and easy going, level-headed and sweet. He has completed one month of daily groundwork and riding, and now is working under saddle several times per week working on steady gaits, transitions, and changes of direction in the arena. He also enjoys and is a trustworthy partner on walks around the farm.

Our Son enjoys grooming and attention and is gentle with children. He will be a wonderful farm, family and trail horse.
