Adoption Fee: Inquire - Currently In Training at Foster Farm with professional.
Akron was put on the back burner as a youngster before being sold to his current connections. I think his size and adorable pony face made everyone look over him assuming the little guy wouldn't amount to much. We think he is just ADORABLE.
He did go back into training but due to his owner/trainer trying to downsize and not having enough stalls at farm or track, he came into the PARR program looking for a new home! He is a cribber that is controlled with a collar, but has no other issues! He is lovely to be around, very smart, sane, and the term "bombproof" has been said about him. Akron is the perfect OTTB with no wear/tear, and the adorable pony looks for a teen/petite adult out there who loves the little guys!
He is incredibly well bred for a sport horse / event type. He has NO limitations on a new career!
The sky is the limit with this one!

Important Note About Meeting / Trying PARR Horses
PARR horses are not in active programs, they are waiting for their new homes to start their new jobs. They are often ridden once for a video and hanging out in field, stall at track, or being turned out at a foster farm the remainder of days while they wait to be adopted. Therefore, we do not allow PARR horses to be tried(ridden) for the best interest of the horse and liability risks for the owners, connections, trainers, etc. If a horse is new off the track, we may only adopt to an experienced rider, or capable rider working with a trainer. They will need to return to a program typical of a horse that is either just off the track or getting back into shape, from the ground up with your training methods. Most live at private farms that do not have arenas/riding areas. If we are able to haul a horse over to an indoor ring for an under saddle video we will, but that is dependent on the horse, schedule of foster home, and availability of a facility with an arena or place to ride. Shipping into a farm costs ring fees and sometimes expecting to pull a horse out of a field, haul them to a new place, hop on and expect them to knock our socks off is a lot to ask of a horse....but some of them do just that and those are the ones that sell fast, especially to those looking for great show-prospects for themselves or to bring along and sell down the road as an investment project. We can set up
appointments for you to meet the horses, see them move freely (or jog in hand), and vettings are welcome.
