Mac (JC Excess Moderation)'s Story
Mac was saved from slaughter by HiCaliber at Ontario Auction on February 16, 2016.
Mac has been working hard, playing hard and even enjoying a bit of the pampered life at his fabulous foster home. His foster mom has been teaching him that life is so much sweeter when you follow the rules. Each day of boot camp ends on a sweet note with rest, relaxation, and lots of love. Mac needs a confident, straightforward rider who wants to spend the time to build a strong and solid relationship with him. Once Mac knows that you are the leader in the relationship, he will put his trust in you and carry you through the toughest trials you may face together.
Mac is one sexy boy. And he gives great kisses. But like any true fox, he is a little bit of a bad boy. Mac is an OTTB with a ton of potential and a little bit of baggage. He is pushy on the ground and needs a confident handler to put him in his place. He has plenty of energy, so it is always good to let him lunge it out before trying to get him to focus. The plus side is that he loves this part, and is very fun to watch prance around. After he gets out his wiggles, he stands well for tacking and grooming, maybe moves around a little bit but nothing major. In the saddle, he has an AWESOME gait. He is very comfortable to ride… did we mention that he is sexy? He sometimes will decide he is done and try to just stop in his tracks, again a confident leg gets him going no problem. At the canter he tends to bulge to the outside and is a bit off balance. This will get better with time and work, no doubt. He occasionally tosses his head around to remind you that he was a race horse. That was the "bad," here is the good: He tries. All the time! He pushes through when he is frustrated and he tries. He takes a confident rider, but as long as you give clear cues he will try his best to work with you. Mac is an awesome English prospect, and if someone puts in the time with him they will absolutely be reaping tons of benefit. Mac is starting to be able to focus and channel his energy forward into the more consistent movement. Definitely a horse for a confident and soft rider to match his large and in charge personality. He is an energy ball after even a day off so will need more than a weekend warrior home eventually.
