We Miss Barbara – Found a Home February 2018 – Assisted

Barbie has been at a farm for the past six or eight months.  The woman who got her off the racetrack did it to help her with the goal of finding Barbie a forever home.  She cannot keep her because she already has several horses to take care of, but she worried what would happen if she did not step up.  After months of trying to find this beautiful girl a home, I suggested that if we had a video of Barbie being ridden that it would make her more desirable.  She is here at Leighton Farm, temporarily for me to get some good footage and then she must go back because we are over horsed here.  The first video is after her being here only four days and she was perfect.  I honestly believe whomever ends up with this little cutie will never regret it.  She just needs someone to love her and show her the way.  Barbie is a willing partner!

Barbie stands 15.2 hands and is five years old.  She is up to date on dental, deworming and vaccinations.  She’s been barefoot for last four months and doing great!  She is turned out with all geldings which has not been a problem.

This gal has had well over six months of let down and is ready to restart.  She is very easy to work with, curious about everything, and just loves tons of attention.  An intermediate rider would be best, someone with experience to show her the way.

Barbie retired off the track sound and with no known injuries except for her left eye. This beautiful girl lost her eye due to a past injury/infection.Her eye does not require any special care.  You only have to be mindful that you have to introduce things from the right.  I had no problem whatsoever mounting her or working and riding her.  She has learned to adapt perfectly to her solo vision. 

She’d be a fun horse to retrain and work with or be happy being someone’s “pet”.

Barbie is available to a good home where the new owner is either skilled to oversee her training or has a competent trainer who will guide them.   She is an assisted placement and located in Harwood, Maryland.
