Check out the soft canter on this guy - meet Dancers Edge and for his size, he is pretty graceful. By Drosselmeyer, Dancers Edge is a 5 year old 16.3hh gelding who has no vices or limitations. With only 11 starts, he was not deemed to be competitive enough for the owners. Having just arrived from the track, he is out of back shoes for the first time in 4 years. He is a great mover with an A+ canter- no vices or limitations, Special consideration is given to adopters prepared to turn him out for a couple of months to decompress.

Additional information about our rehoming policies and practices:
* We have 2 types of contracts - younger sport horse prospects can be sold after 1 year of adoption if all terms are satisfactorily met. *Older war horse types or horses with know issues go with a lifetime contract and cannot be sold, only returned to Rerun due to the likelihood of them falling through the cracks. *Horses that are fan favorites and widely supported are not euthanized if there is the ability to keep them at sanctuary and they can enjoy a good quality of life. Public opinion demands that such horses are provided for once their careers have ended and it is part of the fulfillment of our mission statement.

Rerun is now the largest Thoroughbred adoption and rehoming program in New York and the North East and is both TAA accredited and GFAS Verified.
