Aloha Makuakane

5 year old thoroughbred gelding bred in FL
First Dude (Stephen Got Even) out of Exclusive Chic by Yonaguska
Eligible for the Retired Racehorse Project's

16.3 hands. He last raced on 7/7/23 and retired with a left knee chip and slab fracture. 

Aloha is an intelligent and athetic gelding suitable for non-jumping disciplines: ranch, trails, dressage, etc. He has the build to wear western tack well. Aloha is willing and very forward – he does well indoors and out for a skilled rider. Aloha is currently working on rhythm and relaxation at the canter. His walk and trot have come along very nicely. He has excellent balance and responds well to cues for changes of pace and turning.

Aloha works hard in the arena but also loves a nice and easy hack around the farm or trails.

Aloha turns out with other geldings and gets along with his pasturemates. He is respectful of his handlers and is well behaved during grooming and while being tacked up. He is friendly in the barn and love attention from visitors. 

He is a cribber, which is controlled with a strap.
