Aiken is a handsome 23-year-old, 16hh black Thoroughbred gelding. He raced in his younger days and was then donated to Lord Stirling Stable, where he worked as a lesson horse for the past 10 years. Aiken was very popular with riders because of his lightness and athleticism
and his willingness to move out when asked.
He has very comfortable gaits and is a willing mover; however, the daily lesson schedule became too strenuous for him. He can handle a lighter work load, though, and is fine for walk, trot, and canter on the flat.
Aiken is also very friendly toward other horses and will be a great pasture mate. He is looking for a forever home where he will continue to be loved and cared for. Can this special horse be the right partner for you?
