This competitive racehorse deserved 10 or 20 martinis to let down from his long racing career! Perhaps his sire, Tenpins, a five-time graded stakes winner and a millionaire grandson of Mr. Prospector out of a Deputy Minster mare, had more than a little influence on his exuberant personality.
Ten Martinis, or â€œDino as he is affectionately called around the barn, has now enjoyed some well-deserved relaxation and pasture time. Turnout is fine with others, but be sure heâ€™s not following you back to the barn â€“ this horse wants to be around people all the time!
A gamey little sport horse, heâ€™s a forward ride, but easily comes back and has a lead change. We hope to see how he accepts a polo mallet in the coming days. When cantering down to a jump, just let go and say â€œwhee!â€ The sport of eventing would be perfect for this brave fellow as he doesnâ€™t say no to anything! Heâ€™s very smart, quick to learn and inquisitive. For this reason, we suggest an experienced rider and a previous Thoroughbred owner as an adopter. Because of his slight build, a petite rider is also recommended.
Dino can be a prankster and is smarter than the average horseâ€“but donâ€™t be deterred! If you love a free spirit with the heart to take you above and beyond, Dino will take you there without limitations.
Dino has had a devoted woman who comes in weekly to work with him. Heâ€™s done carrot stretches, lunging, and been in the bitting rigâ€”all while receiving treats and more treats! Donâ€™t even attempt to open the peppermint jar at the other end of the barnâ€“heâ€™ll be whinnying and pawing while the others havenâ€™t even noticed!
