Available for adoption to a good home as a companion animal or low-intensity (no jumping) riding home: Dante, 17h grey Thoroughbred gelding (2008) by Unbridled’s Song and out of My Miss Storm Cat. Two years ago, Dante injured his right front hoof. He has been carefully rehabbed and has a recent clean MRI scan as well as x-rays, which are available to the adopter. He currently has a quarter crack in his right front hoof that will need time to heal before he could potentially begin under-saddle work again. His entire medical record from birth will be available to the adopter.
Before his injury, Dante competed in schooling hunter shows with his amateur owner. He is easy to handle and has a lovable personality. While it is possible that Dante will fully heal from the quarter crack and be suitable for low-level under saddle pursuits (no jumping), it is important for prospective adopters to understand that this would be a best-case scenario. At worst, he would be a lovely addition to someone’s farm – with such well-known bloodlines, an attention-grabbing physique and a goofy personality, he’s a beautiful and personable addition to anyone’s property. He is currently barefoot.
Dante’s ideal partner is a person who is confident working around horses of his size and who is willing to be patient in bringing Dante along. Bonus points if this person likes to groom and spend time with their horses! Dante will thrive in a place where he has plenty of attention.
Located just outside of Indianapolis, Dante is UTD on all vaccines and worming, stands patiently for vet and farrier, and travels well.
