Great things can and do come in smaller packages! We first noticed this adorable young gelding while he was on the walker. He was pulled straight off the walker (you may notice his dusty legs) but immediately settled down and went to work for us posing like a pro; he was agreeable and friendly for his photoshoot. He has a lovely dark coat, a distinctive stripe down his face and exudes a relaxed, confident air. We thought his name was fun (what a great show name!) and that he was completely adorable. He stands out to us as a very memorable horse, always a nice thing in the show ring. He was described to us as, “a happy, friendly, and athletic” guy and that’s pretty much what we observed. We were told that he has no stable vices and that he trains easily. We all thought that he is nicely put together; we liked his compact, well-balanced build, and nicely developed topline. But then we saw him move… Wowza! He displayed gorgeous, floaty movement with nice reach and freely forward, big stride.
He has two very popular sport sires in his pedigree. He’s by Upstart (a son of Flatter ) and out of a Freud mare. Another son of Flatter won the huge show hunter division at this year’s RRP… we think Napoleon Complex could make it two in a row for his sire! With a single win in his 25 starts, his connections are ready to move him to a new career where he can shine. Based on his pedigree, lovely movement, and athletic build, we suspect he might also prove to be clever over fences, so we could see him excelling in many arenas- dressage, eventing, or hunter/jumper. For someone who doesn’t need a huge horse (and often, a more compact, ‘right-size’ horse is easier for many of us to put together and ride well) this athletic young gelding could be the perfect fit!
