6yo 16h TB gelding
(Intimidator – Estrick, by Clever Trick)
“Arnie” is a super athlete. He is always game to try whatever we ask of him. He doesn’t know what he can’t do! He has an uphill build, with great angles to his shoulder and hindquarters, which make jumping super-easy for him. Not only has he willingly jumped everything, he can also handily wait to a jump. He also does flying changes easily. He was born knowing how to use his body and keep his own balance. He finished fourth overall in the show hunter division at the 2016 Retired Racehorse Project out of 70! (JC name: Estaticator).
This horse could go in any direction, but we think we’ve found his calling in the jumpers. His first times in the jumpers were in the deep end of the swimming pool: Upperville Colt & Horse Show and Loudoun Benefit in the North American Young Jumper Development classes (1.0m). He was a quick learner and showed improvement each time he went in the ring. He showed again in the NAYJD classes at Lexington National, and then competed in the NAYJD Finals at the Piedmont Jumper Classic in September. He was the ONLY Thoroughbred to compete in those classes at the Finals (where STYLE counts), and he held his own with two clean rounds: He was a superstar!
Brave and smart, this horse has a TON of heart!
Has been schooled over 1.20m at home. Has a lovely canter rhythm, great brain, and soft mouth. Will be competing in the Young Jumper (6yo) division this season.
7yo 16.1h TB Gelding
(Rockport Harbor – She’s a Fleet, by Afleet Alex)
“G” is a laid back guy who loves to be loved on. G goes well in the ring or out, alone or with buddies. He has a nice mouth and is comfortable to ride. He takes direction easily and is a quick learner. G’s jump is very correct every time. Finished ninth overall in the show hunter division at the 2016 Retired Racehorse Project out of 70! (JC name: Gig Em)
G did his first rated show at Loudoun Benefit in both the 3′ TB Hunters and the Younger Adult/Amateur Hunters. He pinned in a very competitive under saddle class, as well as the VHSA Adult Medal. Has been shown by different junior riders at 3′ and 2’6″, as well.
G does his changes and has a good work ethic. Has also been ridden side saddle. We’ve even jumped him bridle-less! This is a very kind horse who wants to please. Currently used in our lesson program with novice juniors and adult amateurs. Don’t miss out on this special horse!
Rickroll – SOLD
8yo 16.1h Oldenburg cross gelding
“Duke” – The possibilities are endless for this talented guy. Athletic and brave to the fences. Great canter rhythm, and excellent jumping technique; can take a joke and keeps on going. Straightforward and honest, good mover. Has been ridden around by amateurs and novice kids in our lesson program! Scopey enough for the jumpers, cute and correct for the hunters.
