Connemara Coast came to us directly from his racetrack owner- he was running well but had some ankle issues and they wanted to retire him rather than have him get hurt. With a record of 36 starts- 7-9-9 and earnings of almost $350K, he was as honest as could be. We fell in love with his beautiful face and wise eyes. When he first came in we rode him once, but then wanted to let him just be a horse. It took a little time for him to get used to living out 24/7 with a herd of buddies, and now he is happy – in fact, he really would rather not come in the barn at all LOL. CC is easy to ride with three nice gaits, no spook or buck or anything- it just never occurs to him. Because of his old ankles, we would rather he go to a lower level home, with occasional jumping, in order to stay sound – dressage and hacking would be ideal for this guy. Adopted!
