Rich City Girl is a 17 year old mare that arrived in October by way of Denali Stud in Kentucky. She is a multiple stakes placed mare who was a $150,000 RNA as a yearling at Keeneland. After a successful racing career, she retired in 2005 as a broodmare.
After producing several nice foals, Rich City Girl has been barren the past couple years, and her owner Gabe had been looking for a responsible place to send her that would give her a chance at another career. She may be 17, but she seems to be enjoying getting back to work after such a long vacation.
Upon arrival she immediately went on to prove that she’s a cool customer. As our vet said, she seems to have a “been there, seen everything,” attitude. She’s also very sound and has no physical limitations, so we hoped that demeanor would pay off to make one really nice pleasure horse or lesson horse once we put some miles in on her.
We weren’t wrong! Paris dove right back into work without batting an eye and has been a tremendous addition to our barn. She is getting pretty solid w/t/c, just needs to work on her left lead, and is jumping cross-rails and logs out on the trails. Yes, she hacks out on trails and is about as “bomb proof” as these guys come. She also gives pony rides to tiny children and has been ridden extensively bareback. We’ve also ridden her a bit western in addition to her usual English tack and she really is happy with whatever you choose to do.
Paris’ is currently available for adoption for $1200 and trust us, it’s a steal. She would be a phenomenal addition to a lesson program or family looking for a safe horse for their kids to learn on, in addition to making an excellent partner for an adult that wants to have fun but also just wants something super safe.
