Zeke was adopted back in December 2010 but unfortunately his adopter has come into some rough financial times and has no choice but to send him back to the rescue to find a new home.
This handsome fellow is an approx 14 year old, 16hh Thoroughbred gelding sired by "Musing. He’s a quirky horse with tons of personality and has thrived in his adoptive home. He is very affectionate and loves people. He has good ground manners, is a fairly easy keeper, is easy to catch and handle, is good with other horses, good for the farrier, etc. UTD on teeth and hoof care. He is a super fun ride with nice floaty movement. He’s done low level Dressage and has jumped small fences! This boy loves to work and tries really hard to please.
He is quite well-broke and has done Dressage, Hunters and trail riding. He can be a bit nervous when off-property alone, but is happy to go out on the trails with other horses. He is intelligent and responds best to basic natural horsemanship and has been trained in this approach. He can be a bit sensitive and can have his occasional "Thoroughbred" moments, so he is best suited to a confident and patient rider with soft hands. He can be forward but is pretty mellow in the warm summer weather and excels when ridden regularly. He is sound and healthy, but does need front shoes if ridden regularly. He is a hard worker and a gem of a guy!
Original Info [Nov 18, 2010]: Zeke is a 16hh, 9 year old, Thoroughbred gelding sired by "Musing". He is an orphan whose owner passed away. The family wanted to keep him, but were unable to. He was ridden steadily by his owner up until two years ago when she passed.
