Description

Sua Sponte has the regal look of a classic thoroughbred and even with a shaggy winter coat seems to always be dappled. He has fabulous feet, he is truly a farrier’s favorite! Sua is so pleasant to work with. He has gotten along with numerous different turnout groups. He can run and roughhouse or chill with the mellow fellows. He can come in to a stall or live outside though he does need solo access to grain twice daily to maintain a healthy weight. He does not have any stall vices. 

Sua was tracked down by his breeders who purchased him to retire and find a career through New Vocations. Together we have been able to give him plenty of time to let down from racing. He quickly got the hang of life on a farm but still has the heart of a racehorse under saddle. He just wants to give you 100% and we are showing him that he doesnt have to work that hard anymore! Sua responds to a soft,relaxed rider and really appreciates consistency. He is already more relaxed outside of the arena and is gaining confidence. Due to some wear and tear on his ankles, he is best suited for flatwork careers and has the uphill movement for lower level dressage. He might also enjoy obstacle courses or even endurance trail riding with riders who enjoy a forward thinking ride. 

Sua Sponte is 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.
