Spurt came to KyEHC from Churchill Downs. She was retired from racing after she fractured a sesamoid. After a physical exam and radiographs, she received the rehab time and care she needed, after which she was declared sound and able to begin retraining. She is good for the farrier and the vet and gets along with mares and geldings. Spurt has great athletic potential. She has adjusted to farm life quite well and is progressing quickly in her training. Spurt would make a nice low-level performance or pleasure horse. Spurt likes to look good and when she does, she likes to show off. She will test an inexperienced person to see what she can get away with. She enjoys being ridden out in open fields and is learning how to handle going over tarps and poles.
