Conquest Archie is a typical young gelding in that he loves to be a goofball. As evident in his pictures, he takes full advantage of turnout time with his buddies to play (all the marks are superficial though and will grow out in no time!). Conquest always gets us to laugh— whether by trying to eat his halter as we’re trying to get it on him, or walking right up to you to put his head in your chest. It’s hard not to love him, especially because at the root of it all, he is a very lovable guy.
Conquest loves attention and seeks to please, especially under saddle. While he is the class clown on the ground, he is a hard worker under saddle and shows a lot of potential. Like many OTTBs ‘fresh off the track,’ Conquest is working on bit contact. He is beginning to get the concept of being ‘on’ the bit, and he continues to improve with every ride. Conquest would do best with a confident, experienced rider who wants to stick to low-level aspirations with him.
He has no stall vices and is a seasoned pro with the vet, farrier and clipping. This stellar guy is eligible for the 2018 TB Makeover and is ready to go on to his forever home! Archie is also Retrained & Remarkable Challenge eligible. As such he will receive a shipping credit of up to $500, and an invitation to compete in Challenge-specific classes at the 2019 New Vocations Charity Horse Shows in Kentucky and Ohio. R&R adopters who choose to participate in the competition will be eligible to compete for $5,000 in cash and prizes; they will also receive a FREE stall at either Charity horse show and FREE entry into Challenge classes.
