Astrid is an 18 year old thoroughbred mare, who raced in her younger days, but proved too slow, so she was surrendered to us. She is easy to catch and handle. Astrid came to HRA extremely emaciated, so needed fattening up. We have yet to do a riding assessment and advise whether or not she can be ridden.
Update Nov 2017 Astrid has had a riding assessment, but due to a hip problem she is being offered for adoption as a companion only. With intensive therapy she may be suitable for light riding in the future.
