“Chase” is quite the character! This handsome guy is very easy-going and low-maintenance, with a personality that’s hard not to love. He always finds a way to make us laugh, whether it be by hiding in his run-out when it snows, or pretending to be grumpy, only to reveal the true, sweet side of his personality with a good head scratch or a peppermint. Chase has no stall vices, and stands like a perfect gentleman for the farrier and vet.
In turnout, Chase likes peace. He is definitely not an aggressor and if he has a more playful, in-your-face type turnout buddy, Chase does everything he can to avoid conflict. He doesn’t mind going out alone either. We joke and say that he is an “indoor horse” because he likes to be in his stall equally, if not more than going outside. As a matter of fact, when we open up his stall to the attached runout paddock, he often just stays inside and looks out his window.
Chase had extensive rest and recuperation time after his last race to heal a bowed tendon, but the tendon is completely set now. Chase easily took on his transitional training with us and he is now ready for his next vocation! Under saddle, Chase is quite straight-forward, and uncomplicated. He likes to go around on a loose rein, but he understands basic bit contact. He is happy to go around in a ring or outside, but he will be limited to flat work, and he does roar in high-level work.
If you’re looking for a low-key, sweet, level-headed horse who is good alone or in groups and trustworthy to a T, Chase might just be your guy!
