Nobu was adopted by John down in Maryland at the same time his sister Kaeley adopted Dave the Usher. John is hoping to bring Nobu along as a foxhunter and possible show horse.
Nobu Baby is a lithe mare that stands about 15.3 hands. She is 8 years old but only raced 5 times as a three year old. After being unceremoniously slow, she went home to her owner to be a pet for his kids. Fast forward five years and they’ve decided its time for her to find a new home with a new career. Nobu then came to After the Races through the Second Call program to do just that!
Nobu passed her vet evaluation with flying colors. She has beautifully clean legs, no injuries, and is very sound. Despite not being ridden in 5 years, she’s been lovely to handle, gets along very well with other horses, and has no vices. It’s apparent she came from good care.
We recently started riding Nobu and she took to it like a dream. She appears to love to work, is very relaxed, and light in the bridle. She is also a very natural jumper and we think she’d shine in almost any discipline!
