Wow, what a stunning big horse — his gorgeous conformation and glowing dappled coat and elegant well developed top line certainly captured our attention! His trainer told us that he is the “best horse she’s ever had” (and others of hers that we have placed in recent years are succeeding as show hunters so that is quite a tribute to Just Economics!) . She said he’s “easy, easy, easy”, having a great brain that anyone could ride and handle. She says he’s very nice to gallop, He’s reported as vice free, a good eater, and an easy keeper. Just Economics does have old knee chips in the upper joint but his trainer reports that he has raced on them.
Just Economics boasts a lovely uphill build, with a strong shoulder and powerful hind end. For his video, he showed a long, sweeping walk that over tracks by at least half a foot. Although his trainer was herself stepping gingerly through some icy puddles, Just Economics respectfully slowed to her gait and displayed balanced suspension and a lovely reach from his shoulders without high knee action that should show well in both hunters and dressage. He was a perfect gentleman on a cool breezy day despite not having raced or worked for two weeks. Just Economics has an impressive 6 wins in 43 starts, with 10 additional second and third place finishes. He has an excellent sport horse pedigree. His sire Purge is by Pulpit, an A.P Indy son, and out of a mare by Copelan, from the stout and durable bloodlines developed by renowned breeder Fred Hooper . Just Economics’ dam is by Two Punch, a sire much admired in the eventing world, and out of a mare by Relaunch, by In Reality… more great sport horse jumping lines. An excellent home is essential for this much loved horse, and references will be required.
