SKY is being rehomed as a RIDDEN HORSE.

SKY is an ex-racehorse who ran 10 times in France and the UK before retiring from the track in 2013. She came to the Sanctuary after having had a bit of a break from work so we`ve been helping her get back into the swing of things!

Sky has a sweet temperament and is progressing really well with her training. She is currently hacking and schooling well. She has shown herself to be good around all types of traffic and hacks alone or in company. In the school she has started to accept the aids well and work nicely in all three paces although this will need to be continued and built on in her new home. We feel that she is now ready to find a new forever home with someone who can continue her education and have fun with her. We think she has fantastic potential to go on in any discipline with the right person.

Sky is generally good to handle and ride, however she is a typical Thoroughbred. She can be sensitive, fidgety at times and is not a novice ride so she would be best suited to someone who is confident, calm and has experience with this type of horse. We also find that she goes best when she is exercised regularly, ideally 5+ times a week would be possible in her new home as well.

Sky has recently taken part in a intro level dressage competition, which she was very calm & took all in her stride, coming 6th with a respectable score of 58.47%.
She also took part in a hand showing class, in which she came 4th in the ex-racehorse class.
