Ramosgoodandclever, 16.2 hand Gelding
last raced 6/13/2018, one start.
”Nigel” as we know him is a little bit of a different story than most here at ANB Equine. He came to us via Noah’s Ark Rescue Project and Sanctuary back in April of 2019.
You see, life was not kind to Nigel. It’s so secret that horse racing in LA is the bottom of the barrel and many thoroughbreds don’t “make it out“ so to speak. We found Nigel awaiting a grim fate in no other than a kill pen, when NARPS stepped up to give him a brighter future.
It has been a long, bumpy road. As he arrived very thin, beat up and sick. He underwent several months in quarantine and was cleared and moved to our primary farm a few months ago. He has transitioned seamlessly and thrives in this setting. He thrives in our small barn of 13 other horses and would do best in a boarding barn type situation (not going to be your solo back yard horse).
As he’s been with is for some time, we’ve come to know Nigel quite well. He had a bit of a rough exterior upon arrival but has blossomed into Quite the sweetheart. In the months he’s been here he’s come a long way and we suspect he will continue to improve.
Nigel has just been hanging out here. We did assess him at liberty, where we were pleasantly surprised! He is a lovely flat kneed mover with a great canter and even nicer jump! We did put one ride on him back in the summer (that ride is in the liberty video) . He was quiet and easy going with a super rhythmical canter. More recently we had a break in the PA winter weather and went for a nice walk trot ride. He is a push ride And would make a super local hunter.
However, as he can be a little cranky around feed time and is still very much so green we want to see him with an intermediate rider / handler.
He has no vices. He does have some minor ankle rounding and he toes out, he has always been sound. He is not an upper level candidate but would be the perfect dressage, trail, 2’6” hunter type. UTD on chiro work. He is barefoot.
