This beautiful, solid-bodied warmblood imposter is what everyone says they want: big young sound flashy gelding who is a good mover and has a great sport horse pedigree. Remember the beautiful mare Lasagna, that so many coveted when we listed her a month ago? Montana’sbigsunset is her half brother, out of the same dam, Wild in Montana. Sunset is by Big Brown, from the Danzig sire line, and a deservedly popular sport horse sire. We watched Sunset being groomed without being tied up, and his handler, who is also the contact person, confirmed that he is a pleasure to work with and has no vices. We also noted dapples shining through from the growing in winter coat — imagine this flashy big bay with chrome dappled out in the summer! Montana’sbigsunset is reported to be sound with no issues or vices, and we observed clean legs. His handler says that he is very good to ride. But, in his races he either does not like horses running up onto his hind end, or when he is in front, he waits for his pack to catch up with him. Not surprisingly, given these preferences, Sunset has yet to win in his 11 starts (8 this year, so he is fully RRP eligible) , although he has earned some seconds and thirds. But the good news is that in sporting disciplines such as eventing, dressage, jumpers, and hunters, Sunset can be in the ring by himself to show off his good looks and great movement! Sunset enjoyed posing in the sun for his photos, and for his jog video he displayed very good movement with loft and reach that has us thinking he can excel in any sport horse endeavor. He is sired by Big Brown, who if from the Danzig sire line out of a Nureyev/Northern Dancer mare. His dam, Wild in Montana, is by Yankee Victor, who is from Halo and Caro lines. On Sunset’s dam side more crosses with Caro are in the pedigree.
