Walk Out – “Strider”

Walk Out – “Strider”

Walk Out is a handsome, chunk of a horse. At 4 years old and over 16 hands, this gelding by Curlin exudes class. He was very well-mannered and easy to handle for being right off the track, clearly having come from excellent care. “Strider,” as we call him, retired through Penn National’s New Start for Horses program and arrived at After the Races in late June. He had some changes to a fetlock that needed time to settle and was rested until the end of September.

Now fully turned out with a herd and doing well so far, we’re expecting Walk Out to be able to meet at least low level expectations and with his temperament we’re sure he’ll make an excellent trail or pleasure horse. We’ve gotten Walk Out under saddle a few times and for the most part he’s a very straight forward guy. So far we’ve mostly done walk/trot but we did get a canter out of him once to see how he would go and it was lovely. He’s still very green and would do best with an experienced rider.

With the right rider, Walk Out would likely do just fine on trails or as a pleasure horse in addition to low level competitions. For higher level goals, we recommend a per-purchase exam. He may be able to do more than how we’re advertising him. We’re just erring on the conservative isde!

Walk out is available for adoption for $800.
