Winner of almost $864,000! I Am Bonasera has capped off a remarkable racing career and is now ready to start the next chapter…
Even if he wasn’t a towering 16.2hh, Bonasera is not easy to overlook in the barn– he’s got this aura about him, anyone that meets him knows they are standing in the presence of greatness. Any adopter would be proud to have this horse in their barn. He’s brave under saddle and would make an outstanding horse to ride around the farm and down the trails. He has an easy gait that would be safe and comfortable for more novice riders to sit.
He keeps a very clean stall when he’s inside, however, he does like his pasture time! So he could certainly be a candidate for living out in a nice run-in shed for most of the year. He gets along well in turnout with other geldings and is wonderfully mannered for all aspects of his care and training (crossties, bathing, farrier, trailering, etc).
Limitations: LF ankle has some bone formation in the extensor tendon that doesn’t interfere with the fetlock/pastern joint. The firm swelling does limit flexion and so Bonasera is considered best suitable for light riding.
