BUDDY’S TAPIT, 2009 16.3 gray gelding

We have been waiting for the privilege of offering this gorgeous
animal on our listings! Such a stunning horse doesn’t come along very often, and commands attention, and that is exactly what he has accomplished with us: he sure turned our heads! Buddy is by the champion sire Tapit and was purchased for $210,000 as a yearling. While he certainly inherited Tapit’s stellar looks, his racing performance has not matched his sire’s accomplishments. What an opportunity for the experienced rider who wants to take a sound, beautifully put together big athletic horse to upper levels of eventing, jumping or dressage. Clearly a barn favorite, he and his groom have a mutual admiration for each other. The first thing we noticed about Buddy was his beautiful head, with a slight Arabian looking dish and bright intelligent eyes. Out of his stall he demonstrated beautifully balanced conformation with a huge chest and shoulder and a silvery gleam in his coat.Although he was rather full of himself, thus making it difficult to get a good jog video, we were able to see a large stride at the walk and a presence that is commanding. We also watched some of his race videos, and we observed a huge fluid stride, with suspension at the trot.

Price: $6000 (serious inquiries only please)
