Get to Know Adoptable Horse What a Night

What a Night is a 4-year old Thoroughbred gelding bred in Louisiana, by Dialed In (Mineshaft) and out of Lead Us to The Bar (by Dublin). “Night” is eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project’s Thoroughbred Makeover Competition.

Night last worked on March 26, 2023, and never raced. He is healed from a right high suspensory irritation and he is sound under saddle. He does have fragments in the sesamoid that can not be removed, so he should not jump above 2’6″. But he is currently sound and working well under saddle.

Night is an intelligent and athletic gelding with a great personality. He bonds quickly with his handlers and riders and is very polite during grooming, tacking up, wound dressing, wrapping, etc. Under saddle, Night is fabulous — powerful and cooperative, with good balance and a natural understanding of leg and seat aids. Night would be a wonderful dressage or low level eventing partner. This is a smart horse who will do best with a purposeful rider of at least intermediate level.

Night is quiet in his stall and while out. He walks nicely on a lead, is respectful of his handlers, and is good for the vet and farrier. He doesn’t seem to have any vices.
