Tall dark and handsome? Check. Dapples for days? Check. Lovely to ride? Check. Here’s the young big sound fancy moving gelding that everyone asks for! Swinging Sticks is a horse that his trainer has had for the last year and they’ve enjoyed having him. He is lovely under tack, but his trainer does report that he does bite while being tacked up and because of this, she recommends an experienced handler. Once in tack, she reports he is lovely to handle, and the volunteers witnessed this as he greeted them at the front of the stall in tack, looking for scratches! For his jog video, Swinging Sticks demonstrated a lovely over tracking walk and a toe pointing jog with good reach. His movement is fancy enough for the hunter or dressage rings, but we also think he has great potential for eventing. He has 15 starts, with one win, and one third. With this record, his trainer realizes that racing is not his best game, but he has unlimited potential for a new sport horse career. As his trainer told us, “he is such a nice horse, but just not a race horse.” Swinging Sticks is by Effinex who is known to throw large, solid offspring with solid minds. Effinex is by Mineshaft, who is by AP Indy. His dam is by Aptitude, another on of the great AP Indy. Don’t miss out on the horse everyone wants!
