The Standardbred Horse

My Standardbred - My big boy Fella. His racing name is Genuine Fella NZ. Has won over $32,000 in his time. He's now 19 years old.

Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if anyone else is interested in standardbreds, but i'd like to see anyone who is?! I think they are the most versatile breed, great for beginners (if they've been trained, not so good if they've just come straight from racing for obvious reasons) and are great looking! Even though some might disagree! I love their noble heads and most these days dont look as 'standardbredish' as the older types. I much prefer them to thoroughbreds because of their temperment and they are generally very easy to train. So who has one or two or more???

Don't own one but I've considered re-training one from the track. You just have to make sure that you don't get one that paces. Pacing as opposed to trotting is VERY uncomfortable to ride.
