Clear to Here
Clear to Here is an 8-year-old Sky Mesa gelding with an incredible brain, a lovely way of going and an in your pocket personality. He retired from racing with a bowed tendon in 2019 and his owner/breeder was dilligent about giving him the best post-injury rehabilitation possible, then allowing him to be "the farm pet" for several years with a goal of protecting his future viability as a sport horse.

As of November, Clear to Here is being brought back into work slowly with short sessions of lunging/long lining, flatting in the arena/in fields and hacking out on trails. While he is a big, powerful individual, under saddle he is adjustable and rate-able, wanting to naturally move in a round frame. His gaits are extremely balanced and comfortable and he is currently working on changes of pace and direction, trot/canter pole work, and simple leg yeilds and spiral outs to introduce lateral workHaving been off for so long into adulthood, as he gets back into shape, we will be supporting Clear to Here with chiropractic and body work to help his muscles stay supple and his frame to develop symetrically. This should also help his already beautiful stride open up even more.
In addition to being gorgeous, Clear to Here has a fantastic mind. After getting the giggles out in his first few training sessions, he's quickly gotten back into the groove, hacking to the ring or around the farm on a loose rein and approaching each day with the mindset of "where did we leave off last time and how can I do it better?"
Due to his injury and having so much time off (first for rehabilitation purposes, then just to be the "farm pet" for his loving owner/breeders), he will be brought back slowly and listed as "coming soon" as we build up his fittness and fully test his soundness. Thanks to his owners being so meticulous about treating his injury and keeping records, once available for sale, a full history of his injury and rehabilitation will be available to anyone seriously considering him or that want to do a pre-purchase exam.
