Hey barrel racers– are you looking for a stocky, solid bodied, quick and handy horse who we and the trainer think will excel in your discipline (and whose sire has several offspring succeeding as barrel racing horses)? If so, here is your girl! But with her solid bodied and correct conformation, clean legs, good work ethic, and light springy trot, we also think that Bustin Free is an excellent prospect for any new discipline and she has excellent pedigree lines for jumping — so everyone should be interested in this beautiful mare! At this time of year, when horses have started to grow in their winter coats, it is rare to see dapples — but wow does this mare glow with dappled good health! Her dapples glowed even in the gloom of a cloudy cold morning, a testament to the excellent care she gets from her loving track trainer, who cares deeply about finding her horses ideal post-racing homes. In our experience, she comes from a great barn with a trainer who takes great care of her horses and cares deeply about finding them great homes when their racing career has run its course. Her trainer reports that Bustin Free is a sound horse who has not had any issues, is free of any vices, is good to handle, and exhibits a strong work ethic and good energy in training and in her races. She is quick out of the starting gate, with that burst of speed that is so important in barrel racing. For her jog video she showed a cute springy trot, which led us to think that in addition to barrel racing, she could be a good prospect for dressage, western pleasure, trails — or any discipline. Bustin Free is sired by Bustin Stones, who is a son of City Zip,and her dam is sired by Salt Lake from the Deputy Minister line. We have placed several Bustin Stones offspring who are succeeding in many new disciplines, from barrel racing to dressage to eventing to hunters. Bustin Stones has truly proven to be a sire of all around horses, solid bodied, eager to work, and adaptable. Bustin Free has been a solid race horse, and this year she has 9 starts with two wins and 3 additional top three finishes. She is fully eligible for the 2022 RRP, and we would be very excited to see her represent FLF in disciplines such as barrel racing, competitive trail, and freestyle.
