Don't let Art's age fool you. This 23 year old, thinks he is 10 with energy, stamina, beauty and elevation. He has a beautiful long stride, and he loves to trot and canter. Art is not an ideal first horse for an individual brand new to horses as he likes to be very in your space, and may test boundaries, however for someone with prior horse experience, he is beginner level safe, and broke to ride.
Art loads like a dream, trailers well, stands for the farrier, and is ok alone or in a herd. He is beautifully put together, and despite some minor bowed tendons, typical of ex-amish buggy horses he is sound and able to take a rider. Art should be limited to about 250 pounds inclusive of saddle and rider for his longevity as a riding horse. He is a wonderful standardbred, calm, loving, gentle and a joy to be around.
His adoption fee is set at our After The Track minimum of $500. This boy is a true gem, and the amount of love he can bring to your life is priceless.
Why a Standardbred???
From the time they are yearlings nearly every After the Track Standardbred is:
