Description: “Horizon Sky” is a 4 year Irish gelding by the Duke of Marmalade (IRE). Horizon Sky raced 13 times and earned approximately 60K. He retired due to a bowed tendon injury but has been carefully rehabbed and is now ready for riding and training and most importantly, adoption. Horizon Sky is currently located at the Los Laureles Rehab and Training Center in Paso Robles, CA. His first reports are extremely positive. “HS had his ultrasound and he looks good! He is sound and ready to move forward.” Not only did the ultrasound look good, but the vet couldn’t tell which front leg had the injury, so he ultrasounded both.  To his delight, he could not determine a difference between either of his legs. He has a solid citizen quarter horse personality. Never spooks, quiet in his stall, got right on the theraplate and stands super quiet. He should be easy to find a home for.  Horizon Sky is currently being ridden under saddle and working on suppleing and basic aids. Horizon Sky shows much promise as a sporthorse. He can go in any direction. Horizon Sky will make a fine riding partner. Update: May 2014 We are pleased to announce that Horizon Sky has found a career as a barrel racing horse. Becca M. is incredibly pleased with her new baby. Within 4 days of bringing him home to Reno, NV, Becca took sky trail riding through a lake and across open spaces. He was brave, bold, and trusting. Never once did he spook. Becca couldn’t have been any more excited about his temperament and their future together.
