Wise Move is a gem! He is a perfect gentleman with dashing good looks. One of his owners from before his racing days kept tabs on his career and decided to claim(buy) him out of his last race with the intent to retire him and send him to New Vocations no matter how he finished. From day one he has been so kind and settled right in to his new life. He gets along well with his pasture buddies and is middle of the herd. He stands patiently for grooming, farrier, etc. He is a cribber.
Under saddle, he is absolutely lovely. Easily a barn favorite. His movement is very smooth, like he glides along. He loves trail riding and has not once spooked with us, indoors or outside. Wise Move is a straightforward, “yes ma’am” type of ride who is suitable for advanced beginners working regularly with a trainer or low intermediate riders. Due to an old bow, he is suitable for dressage, pleasure, trail, and low level jumping in the hunter/jumper ring, .
