Aiken is a 20-year-old black Thoroughbred gelding. This handsome guy has given riding lessons to riders of all ages for over ten years. He raced as a youngster and became a show horse before being donated as a lesson horse. Aiken was one of the most popular horses to ride due to his lightness and athleticism. He is very friendly with other horses and would make a great companion. Aiken is currently under evaluation by the veterinarian to develop a rehabilitation and treatment plan for a sore back and possible ulcers.
