Richie wins the “most adorable” contest for this FLF season — and the cutest, and the sweetest and quietest!! That’s a lot of great boxes checked right there, and then add in the fact that he is sound and clean legged, very friendly and a very cute mover. We think Richie is begging to become a children’s hunter for a doting kid — but we can also see him doing any new discipline you want with him. But wherever he goes, it had better be a home that will give him lots of peppermints, since this sweet guy is reported to adore that treat. His trainer says that she has ridden him and he is very good to ride. Richie is ready to find a new career since he just doesn’t want to run this year — in six starts he has only hit the board once, while in previous years he was a consistent winner and placer. We photographed Richie 4 days after he had raced, and although he had only hand walked since then, he came out of barn as chill as they come, posed like an angel without moving, and jogged off ever so politely on just a loose rope lead. He showed a good overstep at the walk, and an even, balanced and flowing trot that suggests he could show quite well in the hunter under saddle classes. Richie is sired by Wicked RIch, who is from the Yes It’s True/Raja Baba sire line — a great old sire line sought out by sport horse people who want durability, soundness, and great brains. Richie’s dam is by Freud, another very popular sport horse sire. This abolutely adorable gem of a horse si offered at an enticing bargain price, so don’t hesitate to act fast if you are interested in this guy!
