If you are looking for a big, athletic, sound, upper level prospect, “Lazy” is it! This beautiful horse is the all-time favorite of his owner/breeder, and since she retired him from racing she was hoping to keep him as her personal riding horse. Health issues interfered with that plan, and she has reluctantly decided that he is too nice of a horse, with such great potential as a sport horse, to sit in her pasture. In late January she sent “Lazy” to a dressage trainer to restart, and after just three weeks he is showing big forward balanced gaits, steady contact in the bridle, and good engagement from behind. He should make an excellent dressage horse, but he is also a spectacular jumper. He was introduced to a jump chute, and wow, does he have scope, tight knees and a round bascule! Eventing may be the ideal direction for him to take advantage of both his dressage potential and jumping ability, but with his movement and jump he could do hunters or jumpers too. His owner/breeder says that he is very sound (and his legs are indeed clean), and that he is a very kind, people friendly, want to please kind of horse. The trainer says that at this stage of his development he is best for an experienced rider/trainer, because of his size and power and because his ground manners need work since he was spoiled by his time hanging out in the pasture. He turns out well with both geldings and mares.
He had only 17 starts, with two wins, and then spent three years turned out, so there’s not much wear and tear on him. He has a great sport oriented pedigree. His sire, Comeonmom, is by Jolie’s Halo from the Halo sire line out of a mare from The Axe and Stage Door Johnny lines. His dam is by Gate Dancer, out of a mare from a stout Tri-Jet/Crozier Fred Hooper family.
This horse presents a rare opportunity to get a big, sound, fancy gelding who has already been restarted to demonstrate his flat work and jumping potential. Serious inquiries only please. The contact person is the trainer.
