Adoptable Horse: Irma Girl
, a 6-year-old 16.1hh Thoroughbred mare
Organization: After the Races
in Elkton, MD
This week’s Adoptable Horse, Irma Girl,
arrived at After the Races
by way of Aftercare Charles Town in West Virginia. She is by Limehouse and out of a Carson City lined mare, making her very well bred. She retired after 33 races. Irma has no vices and is very sweet.
Is Irma Girl your Girl?
Her easy going, sensible attitude and endearing personality have made her a barn favorite. She completed rehab for a minor soft tissue injury with no expected future limitations and is plenty athletic to go in any direction. She was just started back in work in late October and is proving a very good student on the long lines. While Irma is just being started into work, she seems like a sensible horse who will make a fun project for even adult amateurs that have a good trainer by their side throughout the process.
