Meet Michael, the adoptable horse of the week from the Kentucky Equine Humane Center (KyEHC).
Michael is an 8-year-old, 16.1-hand Thoroughbred gelding. He is currently in the retraining program at KyEHC where is is going nicely and moves out well under saddle at walk, trot and canter.
Because he raced extensively, the KyEHC veterinarian has suggested that Michael is sound for flat work or as a trail horse. The trainer is recommending him for an intermediate rider.
This handsome boy is also very kind, gentle and inquisitive, and stands well for the farrier and grooming.
