Big Magick (Buzz)
9 year old Standardbred gelding  ~16hh
companion/ light riding only


buzz water

Buzz retired from racing in November 2018 after 53 starts and just over $48,000 made in his career. 
He has been adopted and returned to the program a few times and we are determined to find him his forever home.

Buzz is filled to the brim with personality. He loves attention, but can be a bit of a handful sometimes.
Buzz does best with one consistent horse companion, preferrably a mare. 

He has been ridden in the arena and on the trails- he would still love to have a job but due to some stiffness and past injuries, he should only be used for light riding.
He is sitable for a well matched confident beginner. He is happy to walk along wherever directed, hes not interested in going much faster than a walk. 
He has never spooked, bolted or bucked. He's easy to ride and happy to embark on new adventures. Buzz loves to head off on short trail rides. 

Buzz located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
His adoption fee is $850 (can be discussed for the right home)


Master T (Tony)
2 year old Standardbred gelding  ~14.3hh
potential for any discipline

mastert

Tony is the most adorable, sweet and sensitive two year old gelding.
He never made it to the races- he wouldn't go fast enough. He was trained to drive and handled extensively prior to arriving in our program. 
Tony is not big, he's a little guy with a slim build but he will likely fill out 

Tony is personable, friendly and doing well in a herd environment.
He is very willing and wants to please. He will be a nice project for an experienced person who is not in a big rush. 

Tony is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
His adoption fee is $850 


 Cobaltslaststand (Colty)
9 year old Standardbred gelding  ~16.2 hh
experienced rider recommended, some limitations

colty 2021

This fine gentlemen spent a good chunk of his life as a race horse; with 42 lifetime starts he made his connections $14,692.
 
Maybe a bit too tall for the race track Colty is hopeful for a riding horse career. 
He’s well started under saddle, with no vices he’s pretty easy to ride. 
Colty is not for a beginner. He responds well to a confident handler and rider. 
Colty has learned some manners but needs someone who will remind him when necessary. 
 
Colty does not typically do well in a herd but is currently doing great with a more confident gelding. It takes a lot of time to integrate him with another horse but his adopter should be prepared to keep him separate if necessary. 
 
Colty is up to date on teeth, vaccines, feet and worming. 
 
Colty is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
His adoption fee is $850 
 
 

  Ginger Beer (Ginger)
6 year old Standardbred mare  ~15.1 hh
gentle and patient owner recommended

 ginger 1
 
This girl was a force on the race track earning $90,939. With 83 lifetime starts she finished first 15 times, 11 seconds and 10 thirds. 
Ginger made some waves on the track and is now looking for a new career. 
She’s completely sound with a beautiful movement. 
Ginger requires an experienced person as she’s very green under saddle. She is slow to trust so someone with a lot of patience is important. 
 
If you have the experience & patience Ginger is a great little project. 
She gets along fabulous in a herd with mares & geldings. Easy to lead. Stands like a statue in cross ties. 

Up to date on teeth, feet, vaccine and worming. 

Ginger is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
Her adoption fee is $850

BUDDY WEISER
9 year old Standardbred gelding 

buddyweiser 1

This guy was destined for great things; great things he did and great things he will continue to do.

He finished first 27 times, second 17 times and 9 third places.  Buddy was a war horse! 
 During his race career Buddy was exposed to everything from loud noises, large vehicles, ponying, lights, people..  Buddy has been there and seen that. 

Buddy and Dieter have lived together for years, they could go together or seperate 
 
Stay tuned as we assess Buddy under saddle.

OUTLAW DIETER DO
15 year old Standardbred gelding 

dieterdo

OUTLAW DIETER DO is a 15 year old gelding who never raced. He’s around 15.3hh, with a stocky build. 

Dieter has passed hands a couple of times in the past 2 years but he was once a solid trail horse. 
 Sadly, Dieter sustained an injury to his hoof while hauling to our facility.  The vet predicts he will make a full recovery. 
We will assess him under saddle once he is cleared by our vet.  
 
What we know of Dieter now is that he has a 5 star temperament.  He is very easy to handle, respectful and non reactive/spooky. 
Dieter is very careful of his feet & aware of his surroundings. 
Amazing potential for a solid guy to hit the trails, and a husband horse. 

Dieter and Buddy have lived together for years, they could go together or seperate 
Stay tuned as we learn more! 

Dieter is located at our foster farm in Mission, BC
His adoption fee is $850
