Good Things Come in Small Packages

Omi Ten is a 2017, dark bay Thoroughbred mare who is 15 hands. She is super cute, sound, clean legs, and up-to-date on everything. She is ready for a new sport horse career. She has been raced by her owner/trainer so she has gotten lots of love and attention. Omi is super easy to ride at the track so this means that she will be an easy horse to transition. Just about anybody could ride her. SOLD!
