The Horses

The horses owned and loved by Offshore Acres.

Rory and Toby arrive together at Offshore Acres after being rescued from slaughter. Poor Rory was emaciated. Her dull coat stretched raggedy over all her bones. She had a light in her eyes and gentle soul that both Britt and Nick worked hard at to gain her trust.

Toby is a very loveable, kind-hearted gelding that was lucky enough to find his way to Offshore Acres. Britt and Nick rescued both him and Rory) from a horse auction where they were bound for slaughter. Britt was betting for Toby and Rory and when the meat buyer capped out at his maximum, both horses became theirs in August 2017. Toby is an Off the Track Thoroughbred who won a mere $325 after only 3 starts

Gray is owned and very loved by Britt’s sister, Brianna. He came into their lives in May 2017, and arrived at Offshore Acres in September 2017. Gray is a Quarter Horse gelding, who was originally bred and trained to be a quarter horse race horse. However, he never did not have a racing career, which is just fine for us!

Jimmy is a lovely, kind Thoroughbred gelding who joined the Offshore Acres family in May 2019. Jimmy was very timid when he first arrived, and did have some difficulty adjusting to life post-track. But with patience and understanding, Jimmy has blossomed into a wonderful riding, and competition mount.

Andy is a very flashy, chestnut mare with enough class and presence to turn heads wherever she goes! A gorgeous Thoroughbred mare, by Bold and Flashy out of Ascot Hailey. Her lineage also includes Smart Strike (Mr. Prospector), Bold Ruler, and Danzig. Andy joined the OA herd in October of 2018 after her racing career ended. She very quickly found her way into our hearts and our herd and has proven to be an exceptional mare.

Seabiscuit is Offshore Acre’s resident miniature horse! He is owned by Britt’s sister, Brianna, and loved by absolutely everyone who meets him! Seabiscuit has been with Britt and Brianna since he was 18 months old, and has travelled from barn to barn with Brady and Remy during the earlier years of Britt’s riding career.

Jackson, or Jack as he is more commonly known by, is the personality of Offshore Acres! A very comical donkey, Jack loves the attention of people, and would much rather be helping out in the barn than out in the pasture with the group. He loves his people, and loves to be the centre of attention.

Brady is a lovely, elegant Thoroughbred gelding. He started his career on the racetrack as a two year old, and came into Britt’s life after a mere 6 starts at the end of his second year. Brady began into training as a three year old in the hunter world, but his talents were soon recognized in the jumper and most recently, dressage ring.

Remy is a firecracker of a mare, with a presence and attitude that far exceeds her compact, 16hh stature. Remy came into Britt’s life as a weanling, broke and trained by her slowly and has started in a few shows in 2018. Remy’s Dutch Warmblood lineage is primarily dressage, with Olympic Ferro as her Grand Sire, who competed in the 2000 Olympics, helping his country win team silver for Dressage. Her Thoroughbred lineage has Wild Again as her Grand Sire who had an impressive 2.2 million in career earnings as a Thoroughbred racehorse.
