Wouldn’t you like to be able to hangout with this gorgeous black guy every day?! Even on the wet and cloudy day that we photographed him, the dapples on his gleaming black coat were visible. We think this solid boned horse is one of the best eventing or jumper prospects we have listed this year — but he could do any discipline. Hangout’s trainer says he’s very athletic, sound, has good feet, and has a playful clown personality — which we saw as he nibbled at the strings on her jacket and she tapped on his lip. She says he trains in the morning like a stakes horse, but just doesn’t show interest in passing the leaders in the afternoon. She describes Hangout as a “happy” horse who’s strong to gallop, so an experienced rider looking for an upper level athlete would be best for him. She also says that he loves swimming in the track’s pool, and likes to go through any sort of water — ideal for the cross country course! She reports that Hangout is good in turnout, and that the people who have had him on their farms the last couple of winters love him, and say he settles right down on the farm. Hangout was a bit up for his jog video, showing his power, but also showing good hind end engagement with a light loft to his step. He is by Upstart, who is a son of Flatter — both sires are known for getting horses with good brains, athleticism, and jumping ability. His dam is by Bernstein.
