We bought Mocha off the track in November of 2022.

Since Mocha stopped racing, she has achieved a lot in preparation for her next career! Here are some of the highlights:
  • She has been started with some introductory dressage.
  • Mocha has been jumping up to 0.9 m. (3'-0") and can definitely go higher.
  • Lots of hacks, including hacking at night through the woods, walking over wooden bridges, walking and trotting through streams, walking and trotting along the side of a paved road with traffic going by in both directions.
  • Show jumping, including jumps over walls, oxers, a Liverpool, 1- and 2-stride combinations.
  • Jumping over a 2'- and 3'-wide ditch.
Mocha is super "in-your-pocket" sweet, and is possibly the most sensible horse we've ever owned. Not too much gets her flustered. Super-safe for novice riders. Incredibly smooth trot and canter. Doesn't bite (people), no buck, no kick. Every time we work her on something new, she picks it up in a flash.

She stands for the farrier, and loads and unloads from the horse trailer easily.

She loves scotch mints and/or an apple and/or carrots after a ride.

Call 416.823.6095 or email BruceLamb62{AT} have any questions or if you'd like to arrange a test drive!
