She is being assisted with rehoming, along with her friends - Gus, a Morgan gelding and Rummy a Thoroughbred mare.
We would like Gus and Rummy to go together to a new home.
Below is the information about this mare directly from her owner:
Magic Touch (Magic) (16HH)is a chestnut retired race horse (retired 7 years ago), who made over 100 thousand dollars all in sprint races (1/2 mile). She looks just like her Daddy, Ferdinand. She has been a broodmare the last 3 years once my son began riding race horses instead of show jumpers. Prior to being a mom, she did some show jumping and won 2 second place ribbons in small shows.
She rushes the jumps a bit and needs a confident hand to keep her focused. She doesn't do anything wrong, but she is competitive and easily excited, so the rider has to be calm. She is beautiful and knows it. She shows off in the ring and has an energetic trot. You have to work to keep her collected at first, but she settles down with a confident rider.
Magic has done some barrel racing, (and she's figured out that this is a race) but you have to remind her to go around the barrels and not go straight. Magic has been in our barn since she was 6 years old. She retired from racing after she bowed a tendon, but with a year of rest, she healed to start English and then jumping. She has not had any trouble with the tendon, jumping or barrels.
She is good for the vet and farrier. She cross ties. She has been ridden English. She has been trail ridden along a road and in the woods. She likes to be in front of the trail ride. She is a very classy and kind head mare who gets along with other horses and likes people. She has good ground manners, but is probably not a "first" horse. She would be suitable for an intermediate teen rider who wants to "ride" and not just sit on the horse.
GUS - THE MORGAN
Information about this gelding comes directly from his owner:
Gus (15HH) is an almost black (DK BR) 23 year old Morgan gelding. He gets along well with other horses. We bought him for my daughter when she was 7 and just starting show jumping.
She is now 15, and I expected the grandkids to ride him until it was time to bury him in our pasture. He is our sweet chubby baby. Gus came to us with tons of blue ribbons and a National show jumping title. His previous owner trained him and she was then in college for Equine studies. Gus is a schoolmaster and suitable for a young/new rider.
He never comes home from a show without a ribbon, in Equitation or Pleasure. In fact, he and my daughter have repeatedly caused an entire ring to break down to a walk behind his ultra slow trot in English pleasure. He has a marvelous gait for older folks who want a smooth ride. He is responsive to word commands from the person on his back as well as leg cues. He is mannerly on the ground and practically spook proof.
Gus loves being ridden English, but in his later years he has been used to pony excitable baby race horses and teach them manners. For this, he was ridden with a western grazing bit and neck reined, but English is his first love, and even though he is older, he has never had a sore/sick day in his life.
His feet are tough and do not need shoes even when ridden on the road or jumping. He is an easy keeper with just hay and a cup or two of grain. He stands, backs and (used to) hold up his feet for little hands. He loads without any coaxing. He stands in cross ties, or just with one tie. He's been ridden in the pasture with just a halter and lead rope. He is good for the vet and farrier. He is a perfect horse who needs a perfect home. We will miss him.
Information about Rummy comes directly from her owner:
Rummy (16HH) is Gus' buddy and I'd like to see her go to the same home as he does. Rummy (Rum Jungle) is a chestnut retired race horse with a blaze. (Retired 6 years ago). She gets along well with other horses.
She retired completely sound from the track with winnings of 60K, all at more than a mile. She has lots of stamina but is not hot. She has been off the track, used as a riding horse and broodmare for the last 3 years.
She is sweet and mannerly on the ground and with a bit of a brush up (She hasn't been ridden for a year) will be fine for an intermediate rider or a beginner with a trainer. She doesn't particularly like to jump, but will do so if pushed. She has been taken through the barrel pattern, but would need some work to be a really good barrel horse. She is fast when she needs to be, but is content to take long walks in the woods or on the road.
She walks through water and over logs. Turkeys, deer and trains don't spook her. She is good for the vet and farrier. She cross ties. She has good ground manners. She has been ridden with an English bit and an English or a Western saddle.
She doesn't know neck reining, but is smart enough to learn. She would be a good horse for a teen or Mom or Dad with your younger child on Gus.
All three of these horses are up-to-date on teeth, feet, shots, deworming, Coggins, etc.
