Salinja or otherwise known as “Sal” around the barn is a very sweet and easy going guy and is currently looking for a new rider. Sal needs someone who can give him more consistent riding time than I have due to my work schedule. He has been with a professional trainer for 30 days this past spring and has been doing well all summer. Would make a good hunter/jumper or hunter pace mount for a rider at Intermediate level, preferably someone with hunter/jumper experience.
He is sound, barefoot and has no known racing injuries. Up to date on vaccines, current Coggins, and teeth floating.
New Vocations Description in 2014: “He adjusted quickly to our program and has impressed us with his quiet nature. He enjoys his turn-out and has made friends with his stall neighbors quickly. Sal is very well mannered and easy to handle on the ground. His only vice is that he is a mild cribber while in the stall, but it is 100% controlled with a collar.
Salinja is currently barefoot and has good strong feet. He may need front shoes as his work load increases, but for now he has been fine without. Sal stands quietly to be tacked in his stall tied or un-tied, longes both directions, and stands at the mounting block. He has three very nice gaits and is truly a classy horse. Sal is light in the bridle and happy to work in a little frame. He is comfortable to ride and takes up the leg nicely. We have jumped him over a few small jumps and he is brave and obedient.
He shows excellent scope over fences and has no desire to rush. We request that he go to a low-level jumping home after having a very successful racing career for many years. He’s got a ton of heart and will give everything he’s got. This horse would easily suit a variety of disciplines from a dressage horse, low-level jumping, or even a trail companion. We recommend Salinja be paired with an intermediate rider that is looking for a high quality low-level horse.”
