Salsamon

7,500.00

Salsamon (barn name: Sally) is a 16.2 hand 7 year old registered Thoroughbred brown mare. Sally started 34 times and won $83K, retiring sound. She is a granddaughter of the beautiful Petionville, a horse who was the sire of one of our best broodmares (for eventing). We got Sally late last fall and she retired sound. As we do with all ex-racehorses, we rested her for 4 months with other horses in a large pasture to allow her mind and body to let down. We have since been riding her for several months in every other day work. She schools training level dressage and is remarkably steady in the bridle with a good connection and a very balanced canter. She jumps 2’6” courses and gymnastics and has a lead change. She has schooled cross country and been to several combined tests and starter trials and is always a lady and very safe to ride. We do not lunge or otherwise prep her, just take her off the trailer and get on. Sally quickly became a barn favorite, as her sweet and loving temperament won us all over. Though she is pleasantly forward, she is always sensible and safe and we feel she would be ideal for a teen or adult amateur to finish with the supervision of a trainer. She is a plain snaffle ride for all three phases. Sally bonds VERY quickly to her rider and desperately wants a person to call her own. As we do for all of our ex-racehorses, she was treated for a month with omeprazole (the drug in Gastrogard), as 90% of ex-racehorses come off the track with gastric ulcers. She has also had her teeth floated, been adjusted, and because we did not know her vaccine record, she has had initials and boosters of her vaccines. She is also current on de-worming and farrier care. She is sound and healthy.
