Update June 2014: We first listed this beautiful, quiet, lovely moving horse last fall, and many people were interested in him because they saw the same potential for the show hunter ring that we did. But he was sold to another racing stable to be brought back to the races this spring, and he has raced well this year, with a win and a third in two starts. But he recently incurred an injury in his stall, with a slight crack in a seamoid bone. The prognosis is excellent for eventual return to full work with no restrictions, x-rays are available, and the vet recommends two months stall rest and then rehab including controlled turnout. So this is your chance to get an elegant horse at a greatly reduced price from what he was listed for last fall. He will reward your care and patience. A good home is essential, and he will be placed with a no slaughter/no auction contract.

Here’s your pass to a horse with great show hunter or Pony Club potential. This flashy guy has that elegant hunter look, and he is a lovely mover with an equally great laid back disposition. Nice topline, nice feet and good mover. Trainer says he’s good to ride, turns out well with other horses and is sound with no vices. Great size, great disposition. He has it all and should easily transition to a new career.
