Tahuya Duke is a 2008 Standardbred gelding approx 16hh born on May 25th in Langley. Duke never raced as he was too slow in his trials, but he has been saddled and lunged and doing well, but has not yet been started. He would be a great project for an experienced rider to finish off. He is a nice boy - loads, hauls, gets along with other horses, easy to catch, halter, etc - and he has lots of potential!
UPDATE: Adoption fee reduced to free to an approved home. Duke is a super-sweet and sensible boy on the ground, but will requires a home that can put some time into bonding with him before starting him under-saddle. He tries really hard, is good with other horses, good for the farrier, etc. He has potential as a jumper, eventer or dressage horse with the right owner given his size and build.
