Freedoms Fellow, (9MR3) B.D. 2014

This handsome "Fellow" has recently retired sound from racing with earnings just over $90K . He did have a bowed tendon (front leg) in years past, however, it is long healed. Fellow has been a barn favourite with lots of care and attention during his racing career. He is currently turned out with a younger pasture mate east of Airdrie , AB. Fellow is looking for a less demanding lifestyle in his next phase and would be a great prospect for an experienced handler to start under saddle or perhaps adapt to carriage driving. Although bred to pace , he has a beautiful natural trot! He has a sturdy build and stands at ~ 15.2/15.3 h.h. His owner/trainer is looking for a long term home where he will receive the care and attention he deserves and become a valued family member . 


Absolutely no dealers or those with lack of experience will be considered.


Asking $1500

For further info. Please contact Kathy - or in the evenings @ 403-519-6698


Precious Jewel , (5LN55)  B.D 2013

Precious is as her name suggests , very sweet and personable. This lady stands at 15.1 h.h. and has a lovely build .  Her current owners have owned her since she came off the track as a 3 y.o. to become a carriage driving horse. Although she has spent alot of time between the shafts , she doesn't appear to be too enthusiastic about going beyond a leisurely pleasure driving mode! She would be a good candidate for those just learning to drive, who need a reliable steady partner.  Precious has been ridden , but she has not been formally schooled , however, she has been a safe mount for a novice trail rider.  She would be a nice prospect for an experienced rider to expand her capabilities under saddle.  

Precious is well mannered , trailers well ( she has spent several winters in AZ) , and is located in Vimy, 

Asking $1500

Two wonderful mares looking for a new home..

Due to the circumstances of the current owners (declining health issues), these two beautiful ladies, " Sadie & Bella", are looking for new homes.  They do not have to be rehomed together, although it would be ideal if possible.  They are not herd bound, but they have lived together for several years so it would be nice if they could go together- possibly as a potential driving pair?

Located in Onoway, AB, they are awaiting visitors!

Price for the pair $3000 which is negotiable to a very suitable home.

Individual prices listed separately in each ad, negotiable to suitable home(s).

Fort Woop Up (9FR41) - aka Sadie B.D. 2008 - PLACED !

Sadie is a lovely 15.3 h.h. mare who raced lightly in her earlier years and was then transitioned into a pleasure riding horse.  Although not ridden in a number of years, she has a very personable nature with good manners.  Sadie is easy to catch, lead, and trailer.  Her calm demeanour with people along with small children and  dogs shows her adaptable nature and good prospects for restarting under saddle or for driving.

Sadie has several years to share with someone who is willing and experienced to further her training, she will no doubt be worth the time.  She is a quick learner, very willing, loves attention, is sound and healthy, with a very sweet personality.

Sadie is available to an approved home for $1800


W.G. Force (0GL40) - aka Bella B.D. 2009 - Still Available 

Bella is a beautiful 15.2 h.h. mare who trained in harness but never raced.  She was never started under saddle , more so due to lack of time or necessity .  Bella is  a sound, healthy, and very personable lady who loves attention and a good butt rub, not to mention her affinity for swimming!!

Intelligent , willing with a bit of spunk, she is well mannered and leads and trailers with no issues.

Bella would be a nice prospect for an experienced handler to start her under saddle or refresh her driving skills.

Bella is available to an approved home for $1500


Knights Armour - a.k.a. "Smarty Pants"

B.D. 2004, 16 + H.H. Bay with white on both hinds and large white star and snip.

This handsome fellow has been re-homed previously since he retired sound from racing .  He is currently looking for a long-term home.

He is not being used and is not happy in his current herd situation which has brought the owner to the decision to part with him. He has wonderful ground manners and adores attention!

Mr. Smarty Pants  is well broke to drive , however, he has not had the opportunity to do so since being off the track, so would do best with an experienced driver.  He has had minimal schooling under saddle and is not a beginner friendly horse at this stage , again an experienced rider is required.

Located near Grande Prairie, AB

Asking $1000, negotiable to suitable home
