Blaze was adopted in July of 2022 by Alex in Alabama! Alex hopes to bring Blaze along as her next hunter/jumper prospect and partner.
Silver Blaze is a 16.1 hand, 3 year old, grey gelding who arrived recently by way of Beyond the Wire in Maryland. He is by Cupid and out of a PioneerOf The Nile mare.
This sweet and handsome dude never raced, but was in training last summer and fall at Fair Hill. He had timed workouts as recently as October of 2021 which will make him eligible for the Thoroughbred Makeover for those interested. His connections suspected he had pain in his shoulder and retired him. He had the winter and spring to rest and came to ATR in May. We’ve done radiographs of his elbows and shoulders and everything looks great. He recently had a sound vet evaluation and is not expected to have any limitations!
Blaze is a very sweet, easy-going dude in the barn and for handling. He was gelded in October and was a bit reactive when we first turned him out with other horses, but has since been better socialized and now has a best friend in another gelding. He’s not unhappy turned out solo though, in case that matters for a future home. He’s just a low-stress kind of horse. Blaze has no vices and is good for the farrier, vet, cross-tying in our wash stall, and should fit in well to any barn with appropriate turnout for him. He is also currently barefoot.
