Beachside is a classy handsome horse with a perfect sport horse pedigree — he is a son of Giant’s Causeway out of a Tiznow mare. He also happens to be cute, friendly, relaxed around people, and perhaps even a little bit of a ham and show-off! His owner/handler told us that he is “very intelligent, responsive to voice commands, and likes to communicate to us”. And we observed that he does seem to enjoy engaging with people. He’s said to be neat in his stall and easy to work around- he’s even typically groomed loose in his stall without being tied. The exercise riders report that he is “very nice to ride.” Beachside is very well put together with a long, sloping shoulder, pretty head, elegant neck, and powerful hindquarters. He does have some ankle rounding but we are told that this does not bother him and that he is sound. He walked and jogged politely on a loose lead where we saw some airy, floaty movement. Judging from his pedigree, build, and movement, Beachside could excel in many disciplines, from eventing to dressage to H/J.
Beachside has had a successful race career, earning $166,431 in his 41 starts, with 5 wins, 6 seconds, and 6 thirds. He, as his handlers say, could continue to run and do well but they believe that this very personable boy just really wants to “hang out with people” and that he “could go in any career” direction and be happy in his work. The class in his pedigree is exemplary. His dam, Lovely Lil, is a graded stakes winner who has produced stakes winners. This guy has it all — looks, movement, pedigree! And those of us who ride the horse, not the withers height, know that the athletic, solidly built 15.3h horses are often the overall best and fit all but the very tallest of riders. So those of you average height people who know better than obsessing over ginormous horses will get a true gem in Beachside!
