Quiet nature, gets along well with other horses. Sound for any discipline, clean legs - would make a lovely event horse.
Odin came to us in January 2016 from Mountaineer Racetrack, where he had spent a few months as a pony horse after retiring from racing. He is an absolutely stunning mover and a natural born hunter horse. He was a very easy project to restart with a steady eddy type of temperament. Odie sold to the Zanotti family in June 2016, and will be showing next season in the hunters with his new rider!

He is truly a once in a lifetime horse, albeit a rather difficult ride. He is known as the "barn clown", and has quite a personality.
