Vern is a 3 year old chestnut Thoroughbred gelding who is looking for the right person to give him a forever home and the training he needs. He has some ground manners, yields, does well for the farrier, and is eager to please. He also has been doted on by our volunteers and can sometimes be pushy, so needs someone who understands that he still needs to learn how to be a polite horse. He learns very quickly, so with some consistent training we feel like he will blossom. Vern had an injury to his back pastern when he was a colt that resulted in ringbone, but our veterinarian doesn't think this will keep him from being a riding horse, we just can't guarantee he will be able to do anything beyond perhaps trail riding. Probably not suitable for jumping, endurance, or anything like that. Meanwhile, he is a favorite at the sanctuary, and we really don't want him to go, but we understand he would be better off with his own person than with our mostly senior horses. Because of the pandemic and we are on an island, serious inquiries only please - thank you!
