Syd Licious Bay Geldingfoaled 04/14/200716.2 handsSire: Wild GoldDam: L L’s Key by Silver Deputy Syd Licious is truly a “war horse” with 77 starts and $187,081 in career earnings. Syd was adopted in 2018 but through no fault of his own was returned to HART because his adopter encountered a life change resulting in her being unable to keep him. True to his nature Syd settled in nicely and returned to being ridden without a hitch. He has more whoa than go and loves to plod along at a walk or trot packing the beginners around. Not phased by anything so far. He is not spooky and just goes where he’s pointed. Very few horses race for 9 seasons and Syd, although sound, is recommended for pleasure, trail riding, or dressage. Syd is blind in one eye and raced this way it never hindered him or his race career. With 77 starts at 3 different race tracks he has a calm demeanor and doesn’t get upset about sights and sounds or unseen movements. Kids run around his left side and he doesn’t flinch. Things pop up and move around on his blind side and he stays unphased. He has raced and lived this way so he is absolutely unaffected by his lost sight in his left eye. The pics and videos (Videos are in the comments)below are of him with very very beginner riders and you can see how tolerant he stays with them.He would be a fabulous trail buddy for someone or a beginners first big gentle giant horse! Adoption fee is $450. ... See MoreSee Less
