Oak is a 5 year old, off the track thoroughbred gelding who is with us for training from NEER North. Oak is extremely friendly, stands quietly for vet, farrier, and bathing, and gets along well with other horses. He has had some good down time and gentle post track training, but sustained an injury in turn out which required time off to heal. After several months working up from stall rest, to handwalking, to turn out, Oak is now back to a regular routine and ready to begin his training.
While still taking it a bit easy due to lack of fitness and strength, we have re-introduced groundwork, tack, and a rider. Oak is currently being ridden at the walk and trot, and is doing very well. This handsome goofball is still young both mentally and physically, and will be looking for an experienced rider willing to take the time to build a solid base of conditioning. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to leg up this sweet young gelding.
