 image1 2ginmakesmesinride

Ginny retired from racing after 74 starts, earning just over $25,000- her last start was November 27, 2020. 
Ginny just wasn’t quite fast enough to cut it as a race horse.

Her owner graciously retired her sound so she can move on to pursue a new career as a riding horse. 
Ginny is a goofy mare with several personalities, from happy, friendly, cuddly, to a stone faced mare stare. This girl will never be called dull or boring!  
Ginny has been handled extensively during her race career. She crossties, stands perfectly for the farrier & vet. She trailers great and is easy to bath. 
Ginny is adapting well to being in a herd. She is a beautiful dark bay looking to get started your way. 

Ginny has has a handful of rides under saddle and is doing well learning how to be a riding horse.
She will need someone to continue her training after adoption.

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

Standing at around 16.1hh, Zena is a show stopper. She is big boned and still growing.  
Zena is an in your pocket type of horse.  She is very curious and friendly and loves being fussed over. 
Zena is fitting in great when she has been allowed field time with 3 other mares.  She's playful and loves her new horse friends.  
She leads well, stands for the farrier, great manners in the cross ties.  Not at all spooky.  
This girl will be a very easy and rewarding project!  
 
Zena was born with a conformation flaw in both of her hocks, she is sound and they don't seem to bother her movement.
It has been recommended that her next career be as a trail/ pleasure horse/light flat work.  
You don't find many horses with a solid mind and temperament like Zena- and she's only 4!!

She will be UTD on vaccines, deworming, hoofcare and teeth prior to adoption.
