Adoptable Horses Description
2010, 16.2hh, Kentucky-bred Gelding with 40 starts
Peter is a big, beautiful, classy, quiet gelding by 2005 2-year-old champion Stevie Wonderboy. He raced 40 times; 24 in the States and the remainder in Puerto Rico. Peter was retired to Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare (501c3) August 14, 2017. He survived back-to-back hurricanes, including Maria, which struck PR September 20, 2017 and decimated the island. He, like other horses, lost weight post-storm, but he has re-gained (though needs to regain a little more still, which CTA is working on). He is a survivor!
Peter is 100% class and wonderful to ride! He has rehabilitated from a ligament injury (which is why he was retired), so he shouldn’t jump or do highly demanding sport riding. He would be excellent at flat riding (Pleasure, Trail, Equitation, Lesson Horse), equine-assisted therapy (he can carry a heavy and/or tall rider), and companionship. He is quiet, has a great mind, and is very professional.
Bringing a horse home to the mainland States isn’t as difficult or expensive as one might imagine. We have returned many OTTBs to the States and are happy to discuss the process with you, including the logistics and costs (we get deeply discounted rates for rescue OTTBs). Depending on circumstances, CTA can likely assist with some or cost to return Peter Castleboy.
