Marley has been a staple of Safe Harbor Sanctuary for four years. He was raced, purchased out of racing, pleasure driven, neglected, rescued, adopted, restarted as an English prospect, driven in all of our events and driving clinics, and through no fault of his own, this gem of a horse is seeking his next chapter.

He is available to an exceptional home as a pleasure driving or riding horse. Marley has much more training as a DRIVING horse. He has about 3 years of under-saddle training, but his adopter's health has prevented him from being consistently ridden in the past 2 years. Therefore, he is woefully out of shape and just needs to be brought back via a consistent program.

A registered, gaited, off the track Standardbred gelding, 17 years old and 16h-16.1, Marley is UTD on all routine care. The riding portion of the video was his first ride in about 2 years, and we tacked up and went with no lunging or warm-up. Intermediate or better horseman would be his best match, although a beginner rider/driver can certainly handle him with coaching. Note: A nervous rider makes him nervous, as he will feed of the rider's energy and seek out 'reasons' to be scared. An aggressive rider likewise makes him nervous, so if you are the hop on and kick to go type - this is not the horse for you. He is incredibly kind and tolerant, and it is only fair that he expects the same from his person.
