Grandpa has been working as a pony since he retired from racing in 2013 – he’s got to have a job! His trainer says he is a nice reliable ride. He has had Grandpa for the last 8 years and described him as his “pet.” His trainer was riding him often after he retired, but recently suffered an injury and hasn’t been able to ride as much. He feels Grandpa needs to move on to a new home where he can be ridden and just enjoy being a horse. This boy is sound, has no vices, is great to work with on the ground, and is beloved around the barn. He loves treats, but his favorites are fruit! He especially loves green grapes, bananas and watermelon. Grandpa has a sweet personality. His trainer wants to make sure he gets a great home. He is located at Bowie Training Center in Bowie, Maryland.
