Long Island Duck, “Ducky,” is a 5 year old, 16.1 hand, grey gelding. He is an exceptionally sweet horse with a great personality. Ducky was originally adopted in January, 2012 and was just returned to us nearly two years later in December, 2013.
With his previous owner, Ducky had accomplished quite a lot. He has shown in hunters as well as in dressage (I believe up to Training level), having trained and taken lessons in both disciplines. He has been trail ridden, lightly jumped, and qualified for the 2014 Pony Club Championships in Kentucky. He has terrific movement and would make a phenomenal hunter under saddle or dressage mount for someone.
Upon his return, Ducky’s owners reported some arthritis in a hock that their vet suggested should limit him to lower levels or pleasure riding. They did think he could do more with injections. Ducky will be getting evaluated by our vet on Monday, December 9th, and we will update here with his prognosis for riding.

We expect Ducky’s adoption fee to be $1,000.
