Featured Adoptable Horse

Sugar Gold - ADOPTED!!!

16.1 hand bay gelding

Our featured horse of the week is Sugar Gold! I can’t believe this fantastic horse is still available. Sugar is a dark bay 16.1 hand OTTB, and is 7 years old. He has competed at a USEA recognized event at the Starter level, and at an unrecognized event at Beginner Novice. Sugar is now schooling Novice jumps on cross country and has ample room to move up! Sugar is suitable for a confident young rider or amateur looking for a nice, fun and talented horse to bring up the levels. 
Sugar is currently located in Salley, SC.
