Dartanian
Type of Animal Horse
Dartanian
Age 16
Dartanian came to us from Kankakee Animal Control after he was found as part of a walking skeleton duo, wandering along a downstate road. He and his buddy, a bay horse were skin and bones. They were able to save Dartanian, but the bay buddy was not so lucky. He died 4 days after Animal Control rescued them. Animal Control stabilized him and helped him regain his strength. We have discovered that Dartanian was used as a lesson horse in a riding school until he was deemed unsuitable for heavy jumping. This very tall 14 year old would love to have a family of his own. He measures in at 16.3 hands! Dartanian can be ridden at the walk and trot mostly, but can also do some light canter work. He is great in the arena and out on the trails! Dartanian can be strong out on the trails, so he would do best with an intermediate rider. Dartanian requires front shoes and a home with a dry lot. He is a sweet and gentle gelding!
