Welcome to Horse Illustrated’s weekly installment of the My Right Horse Adoptable Horse of the Week, offered in partnership with The Right Horse. No Alibi is this week’s adoptable horse. Check back weekly for a new featured horse so you can find your #righthorse.
Organization: Lollypop Farm
“Alibi” came to Lollypop Farm in the fall of 2019 after his owner could no longer afford to care for him. He had a very brief racing career of five races. Alibi spent most of the time since retiring from the track sitting in a field. He came to Lollypop Farm a bit skinny, had ulcers, and very neglected teeth. He had a full treatment of Gastrogard, lots of good care, and is a totally different horse today. Alibi is up-to-date on shoeing (wears front shoes), vaccinations, dental work, and deworming. He started back into work this past summer and has picked up on riding very quickly. He is currently going walk-trot under saddle and working on large circles and figure eights while learning to steer and accept contact. He also gets ridden outside to gain exposure to sights and sounds. Alibi is more whoa than go, has a great work ethic, doesn’t spook easily, and is a true pleasure to ride. He really loves people, and gets along great with other horses. Alibi does have some hock arthritis, and after consulting with a veterinarian, should not be jumped. He would make a great pleasure mount, low-level dressage mount, or a trail horse with more training. He would make a fun project for somebody looking for a quieter off-track Thoroughbred (OTTB). He is suitable for a rider experienced in restarting OTTBs, or an intermediate rider with a trainer.
