Don’t judge this book by its cover! Mr. Rosenthal may not look like the ‘textbook’ racehorse, but don’t underestimate him– he had 41 starts and finished his career with a 7-5-9 record.
Mr. Rosenthal is a remarkable gentleman. Being that he is nearly ten years old, on the short end, and stands quite over at the knee, he is already a step away from the ‘norm,’ but we think that makes him even more special! He doesn’t let his classically ‘incorrect conformation stop him. He has comfortable gaits under saddle and he tries very hard. He will need an advanced rider who can help him to progress and who understands his athletic limits due to his conformation.
Around the barn, Rosenthal is a cheery, reliable guy who enjoys getting attention. In turnout, he loves rolling and running around with his buddies. He was picked on by some of the horses at first, but he quickly decided he didn’t want to be picked on anymore, so while he is not an aggressor, he will stand up for himself.
He is eligible for the RRP’s TB Makeover and the Pony Club Challenge.
