Pacific is a 4yr old gelding by Smart Strike standing 16.2h. He is an easy going and in your pocket. Pacific is a big cuddly teddy bear! He is still young so plays with the other young boys, but when they get to running he is usually the first to stop and graze instead. He does not have any stable vices.
Pacific was retired after 2 unsuccessful starts without any known injuries, rather for an inability to breathe properly at high race speed. He has experienced a couple setbacks while in our program. His RF foot tends to be pretty upright and we have kept a leather pad on to protect from repeated bruising. He also showed some mild symptoms similar to that of shivers but we have been unable to get a definitive diagnosis and the symptoms have subsided. He is currently gong well in training and is a very laid back ride. He is a complete push ride who can even manage to 4 beat at the canter in his laziness! He has been working over trot poles successfully and always enjoys a relaxed trailride around the farm. Pacific is as steady as you could hope for a horse at such a young age and is happy to bebop around with an intermediate rider.We do want a home that is prepared that this horse may not be straightforward in management and will be willing to accommodate his needs. It is hard to forecast his potential , so a home geared towards pleasure that is happy to see where the road of life leads you guys together would be ideal.
