Hidden Fling has made a wonderful recovery since we rescued him, and is now close to his ideal weight and in retraining. Our friendly off-track Thoroughbred is well behaved on the ground, and stands fine for grooming and our farrier. Trainer Gretchen Jaeger is lunging Fling in the roundpen for now, and expects to try him under saddle soon (June/July).
RESCUE STORY: After a citizen reported horses being kept in inhumane conditions to Miami Gardens Police, we seized former racehorse Hidden Fling along with two other horses on Saturday, October 7, 2017. All three were padlocked into their ramshackle stalls, deep with mud, with no drinkable water or edible feed. Fling arrived severely malnourished with a body condition score of a 1, the lowest on the scale, and with rotted and overgrown hooves.
