Novel Start is truly a gem! He is shy, almost timid at first but he wants to meet each new person. He often has his head over the door watching everyone work and loves a good face rub. He was bred in New Zealand before racing in Hong Kong. He came to New Vocations in October and was allowed time to become accustomed to our climate before starting work under saddle.He is at the bottom of the herd and needs to be with kind friends so he doesnt get picked on or excluded. He does not have any stall vices. 

Novel Start is a war horse who ran 79 times in his career and retired SOUND! As if that werent incredible enough, he is ultra reliable under saddle. He has been quiet and steady since day one of retraining.Novel is not spooky and is mainly just working on starting to use his hind end to carry himself. He is the horse you can get on every time and have a good ride. We started him over crossrails and he was just as professional as we expected. He gets along with a variety of riders and is a solid mount for an intermediate rider in any discipline!
