Gameday News is solid boy who is built a bit like a linebacker on a football team, here is your very own New York Giant! This is fitting since one of his racing owners was Bill Parcells who specialized in defensive line and linebacker coaching before becoming a head coach in the NFL. He retired Gameday News to Old Friends Equine in 2012. New Vocations and Old Friends have partnered to allow horses who could have a riding career a chance to do so and also offer retirement home for some who may not be able to be ridden. Gameday News was the first horse to come in to New Vocations through this partnership as it was a shame to see a young healthy horse just sitting in a field when he was begging for a career with his very own person. We are very excited and fortunate to have this beautiful guy with us. Gameday was placed last year but his adopter no longer has the time to give him and it was in his best interest to find a new home.
He is a sweetheart to work with and has an overall classy demeanor. He has a big frame and holds his weight better in turnout situations where he is out for 8+ hours.
Although he is big and brave with the boys, he looks to his rider for confidence under saddle. He can worry about things he hasn’t seen before but will trust you when you tell him its ok. Gameday is a lovely mover and carries a nice light frame. He has started over poles and crossrails which he seems to enjoy. Gameday will be suitable for flatwork and low level jumping. He needs a confident intermediate level rider who can guide him while he is still building confidence.
