Thoroughbred - Sea Biscuit - Large - Adult - Male - Horse
Sea Biscuit (gelding) was one of seven horses HSSF rescued in early March, 2012. Approximately 18 years old, he would work well as a pasture pet, something that someone might want to groom and dote on, or with training, he could be a riding horse. His disposition would make it easy for someone to get along with him and would make it easy to train him to ride. He needs work to build muscle and become soft and supple in his body. As a companion, he would be an easy guy to get along with and dote on. If someone wanted to use him as a riding horse, he is definitely capable, but I recommend assistance from a professional to keep him going in the right direction. If you are interested in a project horse, Sea Biscuit would be great. This gelding has a quiet, honest demeanor and a kind eye. He is quiet and willing with his ground work. His loss of his right eye did not seem to hinder him with his ground work, he seemed to find his footing well. If someone were to show interest in this gelding, there are some great exercises they could do to learn how to handle a horse without an eye and that would make him learn how to respond to his handler, even without being able to see him. Sea Biscuit was sore on his hooves when we ran him through his paces, if someone were to ride him, they may want to consider putting shoes on him. This horse seemed like he has either not been ridden, or hasnt been ridden in a long time. He was uncomfortable with the saddle once it was cinched up (western saddle with front and back cinch). He was easy to bridle and with a little work figured out what flexing his head laterally was. Once mounted, he was sticky and had a lack of forward motion. He seemed willing to try and learn, but would need a rider that could guide him and make him feel more comfortable under saddle.
