Huge and solid boned, but beautifully balanced and a lovely light mover — we can see this gentle giant fitting right in with warmbloods in the hunter ring. Chief Gaga’s trainer kept singing his praises — he is described as a quiet and laid back horse who is excellent to handle and to ride, so kind to ride that he was used to teach the trainer’s friend how to gallop on the track. Chief Gaga is a great mover, with suspension and cadence and reach, and he showed it off oh so quietly on a long loose lead. He will need a home experienced with horse care, because his right hind leg tends to get a touch of cellulitis and needs to be kept wrapped when he is not in work so that it doesn’t swell up. It causes him no soundness issues at all; indeed, he had raced just a couple of days before his photo session. Last year, he had an abscess in his right hind, and since it blew out and healed, the stocking up tendency remains. Chief Gaga has been a good consistent race horse, with 5 wins and over $100,000 in earnings. To add to the appeal, he is also very well bred, by Indian Charlie (from the Caro sire line) out of a Quiet American mare (from the Fappiano sire line). His second dam is from the Nijinsky sire line with a dam from the in Reality line.These are great jumping lines! We have placed several sons or grandsons of Quiet American and they are all great athletic jumpers!
