Next Big Thing, 2014 17h chestnut gelding

Located at Finger Lakes Race Track, Farmington, NY (near Rochester)
We think this stunning big guy just might indeed be the next big thing in the show hunter ring or in dressage or eventing!  Known as “Biggie” around the barn, the assistant trainer, who is the contact person, says he is his favorite horse in the barn because of his great personality. He is quiet, friendly, really good  to handle, an all around nice horse.  And they say he is very sound. What Biggie isn’t is a good racehorse — the assistant trainer says he likes to just gallop along at one even pace, which has only been fast enough to win one race, and now that he has to face winners he isn’t competitive.  But a slow even pace sounds perfect for the hunter ring! Biggie was very quiet and chill for his photo session, and jogged quietly on a soft lead, showing good suspension and cadence with a toe pointing reach and good engagement from behind — a very good mover indeed.  The assistant trainer tells us that they put a measuring stick on him, and he is 17h right on the mark — and as a four year old, he might even grow a bit more. We admired his uphill build, strong shoulder, and flashy good looks.  Biggie is by Stonesider, a Giant’s Causeway son who is known for getting big, solid boned, good moving horses who are good jumpers.  We have placed several Stonesider offspring into new homes where they are doing well in eventing, dressage, and in show hunters.  Biggie’s dam is a stakes winning daughter of Catienus — another sire known for getting good jumpers with good brains.  Big sound young horses with this much sport horse potential don’t come along every day — so if this is what you are looking for, you should act fast to make Biggie your next big thing!
Price:  $5,000 (slightly negotiable to an excellent home with very good references)
