Gatsby

Age: 14
Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse
Size: 14.3 hands
Rider level: Beginner with assistance from a trainer

Gatsby is an approximately 14 year old TWH. This gorgeous gelding has a coppery sorrel coat that glimmers in the sun. He loves grooming and attention. He came to rescue in Operation Date Night, a Davidson County neglect case. The horses in this case were hidden on the backside of a hill; kept in ramshackle cages and dog pens. Gatsby deserves a beautiful future; he has endured so much. He has had 45 days of professional training with Perry Neal, and has continued to be ridden while at his foster home. He is gentle enough for a beginner rider working with a trainer, but would excel in a home with a knowledgeable handler to oversee his continued training. Gatsby just completed an additional 7 days with Perry; bringing his total training up to about 52 days.  He will test a beginner, but with an experienced rider he is trail ready.  Gatsby’s only need is an all gelding environment.

Gatsby was gelded 09/07/17. Due to being gelding later in life, Gatsby needs an all-gelding environment. He is sound with no limitations and will make a wonderful trail horse. His adoption fee is $400.
