Everybody knows someone like Artie. He's that guy who has a great heart at his core but for whatever reason just doesn't fit into mainstream society.
A good egg in so many respects who finds themselves as a bit of a loner because they don't operate within the goal posts.
We tried Artie as a riding horse and to be perfectly honest, if you're a no nonsense rider who provides clear direction, he's absolutely fine. But our primary HERO clientele don't have the confidence to give him the leadership he needs under saddle.
So the big man finds himself looking for an alternate home. He is good to handle on the ground, no problem for the farrier, and we have had him paddocked with horses he likes and he's fine.
However, we've also had him paddocked with horses he didn't like and he can be quite antsy, so we're really keen to find him a home as an only horse where he can enjoy the company of a human companion.
He is 100% sound and would be an awesome natural horsemanship or liberty training project.
Artie was an amazing warrior on the track and deserves a good retirement. We remain very hopeful that as the saying goes "there's somebody out there for everyone".
Artie will only be rehomed under the rules and regulations of the HERO Companion Program, where prospective adoptees must visit and background checks are required to ensure a quality home.
His adoption fee is $500. Expressions of interest welcome.
