Strong Impact, better known as Impact around the farm is not only adorable, but also a super race horse that earned $552,505 in his 48 starts. Retiring at the end of July after an impressive 8 years of racing, it was time for Impact to find a second career. Impact is very charming and sweet with great manners on the ground. He stands well for the farrier and is always pleasant in his stall. It is no wonder why He is a barn favorite with his easy way of going and friendly personality. He has taken to his new riding routine without a hitch and is a great ride. He stands for mounting and is a confident horse under saddle. Impact understands how to move forward off of the leg and likes a steady rein contact. He is beginning to get more supple in his body and is learning how to bend and relax his frame. He picks up both canter leads and is working towards better balance and rhythm. He is a very special guy looking for a more laid back second career. He is best suited for an intermediate rider that will enjoy taking him for long hacks and trail rides as well as low-level dressage. He has been rehabbed from an apical sesamoid fracture http://www.horseadoption.com/sesamoid-fractures/
Survey radiographs taken 2/10/16 are available to approved adopters.
Impact came to New Vocations via NYTHA’s TAKE THE LEAD Program. We are very grateful for their support.
