Meet Duke

Duke is solid and well conformed, very easygoing and quiet to handle. He has amazing paces and would suit many disciplines

he's done low level dressage, can jump to a metre, he is great on trails and can be ridden by beginners. He has raced but you would never know it by his temperament or behaviour under saddle. He is a good doer for a Thoroughbred. He requires shoes. Duke would suit an intermediate rider for many disciplines and PC or ARC. He is a big sook and loves attention so a home environment is preferred. Duke was rescued in 2006 following his racing career and was adopted out to a great home, however due to a change in circumstances he's come back to us and is now looking for a new home.
