About Kid

If your goal is to turn heads in a crowd, forget about the little black dress and go for the big black horse instead! Kid From New York, a 16.2h, 2014 gelding by Dialed In out of Look Who’s Ritzy by First Samurai, would be a fashionable addition to anyone’s home. After running in 4 races, Kid enjoyed several months of R&R in our Clean Start Program. He’s now at the MMSC learning a whole new way of going and has shown us what a truly elegant athlete he is. What he needs, of course, is time, training, muscle, and miles. With these, he should go far. And he’s aptly named, too. Like any true New Yorker, Kid is accepting of people, challenges, and changing circumstances and he has a great sense of humor. He’s interested in everybody’s business, he’s extroverted, he vies for attention in goofy ways, and he’s utterly endearing. It’s no surprise to us that he was a barn favorite on the track. This “kid” has a style that any crowd would love!

About Barney

You’ll never be lonely with Farmers Only! This handsome 16.1h, 6-year-old gelding by Big Drama out of Sweettay retired from racing with no known injury history and is now looking for the love of his life. Workmanlike and honest, “Barney” is a true romantic, seeking a deep connection and understanding from his human counterpart. Given time to build a relationship, Barney will impress any lady with his gentlemanly and charming nature. Not to mention his innate athleticism - he is remarkably balanced for a horse so recently off the track, his canter is smooth, rhythmic, and powerful, and he has shown a keen aptitude for jumping. In his short time on the “dating scene”, Barney has met individuals interested in eventing, hunters, jumpers, fox-hunting, dressage, and western trail riding. He could excel in any of these venues with anyone from a teenager to an amateur to a professional but hasn’t yet found The One. He is truly waiting for his princess to swoop in and steal his heart. Could that be you?

About Magnum

This sweet gelding is only a few days off the track but he's taking to a new career like a fish to water! In just his first ride at the MMSC, Magnum tried his absolute best to answer every question, even tackling a small crossrail with ease. At just 3 years old, Magnum is learning daily and building confidence. With no injury history, he could excel in a variety of disciplines but one thing is for sure - he'd look mighty cute with a Christmas bow around his neck!

Even though he’s new to his lessons, he’s a natural student. Things seem to come easily to him, and he finds flexing his muscles fun. So if you can make training a sport and not a chore, you’ll rule the surf on Pacific!

Level-headed and eager to engage with humans, Seas has all the right building blocks to make a lovely all-around mount for an amateur owner. He is not a horse that can be pushed - that brings him stressful reminders of his racing days - but when given the opportunity to progress in training at his own pace, he blossoms, enjoying the work and trying hard to please. If you're interested in going on a journey with a kind-natured and honest horse, then you might find Seas to be the perfect partner and friend.

Date of Birth: March 13, 2010
Gender: Mare
Height: 16.1h
Sire: Notional
Dam: Pennyrile by Wagon Limit
Race Record: Unraced
Earnings: n/a

About Lady

Most of our horses are looking for their second career, but here's one special lady in search of her third! Thundering Lady, a 16.1h, 2010 mare, has spent the past several years as a broodmare in New York, but when she wasn't able to conceive any longer, her owners wanted the best for her and sent her to the MMSC last fall. Lady’s big stride, rhythmic movement, and powerful hind end predict her talent as a sport horse, and her willing attitude and kind nature make her the perfect project for an amateur rider to move up with. Lady is looking for a person to bond with, and we have no doubt that she'll do anything for her chosen person, as this mare is pure class!

About Tiger

Eeny, meeny, miney, moe, catch a tiger by his toe! Meet Tiger's Tip aka "Tiger", a 15.3h, 2015 gelding by Congrats out of Berbatim by Bernstein. Unsuccessful as a racehorse - mostly because he found racing terribly uninteresting - Tiger is just starting his journey to a second career. But based on his uphill movement, compact athletic body, and lack of any injury history, he's certainly sport horse material! Maybe he'll be bold and brave and find a passion for eventing, or maybe he'll discover a love of tight turns and high jumps in a show jumping ring, or perhaps he'll decide he wants to wear a tutu and show off his excellent footwork in a dressage arena - only time will tell. With his willing attitude, a cheeky horsenality and a sparkle in his eye, Tiger is already charming everyone he meets - so if you like what you see, better come catch him quick!

About War of Ideas

October 2018 - Considering what he has been through, War of Ideas, a 16h, 2013 gelding by War Front out of High Tap by Tapit, has indubitably earned the moniker "Warrior." It was Warrior's heart and fighting spirit, bolstered by the excellent care he received from the caring and generous Dr. Liz Barrett at Hagyard Equine Hospital and the time and rehab here at the MMSC, that beat the odds to survive a dangerous fungal infection. It was impressive. But then, he has always been impressive. As a 2014 Keeneland sales yearling, Warrior created an impressive furor of bidding due to his black type pedigree, balanced conformation, and correct limbs that resulted in a sale price of $470,000. He did well at the track, too, garnering $56,920 in just four starts. From the day he arrived at the MMSC, he impressed us with his irridescent gray coat, silver mane and tail, generous brow and lustrous brown eyes that make him look as if he stepped out of a fairy tale. But as he has progressed in his training in our Horse Centered Reschooling Program, it has been his quality of movement - uphill and balanced with suspension and rhythm - his athletic ability - stay tuned for a free-jump video - and his character - honest and willing with just enough swagger and presence to keep life interesting and to stand out in the show ring - that made us realize what a true champion of a horse he is. We are sure that this warrior will win hearts and excel on all fronts when he finds his person.

War of Ideas is jumping grids this week, working on his footwork and straightness. The addition of the inflatable jumps from AirESS Equine (www.airessequine.com) added variety to the grid and helped prep Warrior for bigger and more elaborate fences in his future! Thanks to Craig Shegog for coaching!
