Are you looking for a big strapping horse who takes his job seriously? Meet Heading to Boca, a 16.3hh 2011 off-track Thoroughbred gelding!

Boca enjoys working and is extremely athletic. He picks up on new things easily and really loves being ridden often and having a job.

He needs someone who will be a confident leader and will make him mind his manners. If he can push you around, and get away with naughty behavior, he will. However, if you present yourself as his leader, and he learns to trust you he is a perfect gentleman! He is quite business like and wants to do right by his human. Great mind on the ground and under saddle and is very willing to learn new things.

Under saddle, Boca needs someone with a strong leg and tactful hands. Especially when it comes to jumping because he is so green. Timing is everything for him as he continues to learn and grow, and he has a tendency to be hard on himself if he doesn’t understand the question right away. So a patient and encouraging rider would be best. He is brave, and a lovely mover on the flat!

An ideal home for Boca would be an experienced person wanting to bring along a fun and talented project. With patience and dedication, this horse really thrives. He could go in any direction, and tries his best to do what he is asked.

Boca prefers to be outside so if you have place with lots of turnout, he will be very happy!

He is currently located at a retraining facility near McCordsville/Fortville IN.

Boca is available for adoption through Friends of Ferdinand, Inc, Indiana's only Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredited organization. All Friends of Ferdinand horses are vetted, require test rides, and come with a 30 day trial. See more videos & photos of Boca, & fill out an adoption application for him on the Friends of Ferdinand website!
