Ben is a four year old gelding who came off the track in September 2013. He's been allowed a lot of downtime and has been started back undersaddle slowly. He's currently going w/t/c and attempting some crossrails.

Ben is a thoroughbred lover's dream. He would be a great project for a first-time OTTB owner because he's very respectful and responsive, or he could make a very easy project for someone with experience training OTTBs. Ben currently rides in a snaffle with no flash or figure-8. His current rider is an eventer who is putting a basic dressage foundation on him.

Ben is a fairly easy keeper. He is on Safe Choice pellets and an electrolyte. Ben stays outside 24/7 with another horse, but stays in a stall nicely. Has been with as many as three other geldings and has shared a field with a mare. Ben is middle of the herd, but is currently dominant to his pasture-mate. Not a bully! Ben is shod on the front only. Keeps shoes on very well! Ben loads, clips, ties, and stands for vet and farrier. Needs a farrier who he trusts as he is just getting used to hot shoeing. No vices and 100% solid ground manners. Could be led by a child to and from the field.

Ben would flourish best with an experienced rider or an intermediate rider with a trainer due to his age and how recently he was taken off the track. While he shows the most potential for eventing, he doesn't have a "crazy" bone in his body and with time could do equitation as well as local hunters. Uphill build AND a great personality. Barn FAVORITE!

Owner has too many horses and started a new job right after purchasing Ben, so reasonable offers to great homes will be accepted. Price will increase with training and showing.

**UPDATE 7/7/2016**
Due to extended downtime for owner (surgery not related to Ben), he needs to be sold as soon as possible. All good homes are encouraged to make an offer on this wonderful young prospect.
