What’s more fun (and rewarding) than bringing a baby along yourself? You get to install all the buttons just the way you like them, and you can bet the bond formed in early training will pay off on down the road. And with the USEA’s fantastic Future Event Horse and Young Event Horse programs, you don’t even have to wait around to get your youngster out there in the world.
Here are three 3-year-olds that have “event horse” written all over them!
Benny the Star (Benny the Bull – Warrior Belle, by War Deputy): 2014 16-hand Florida bred gelding
This guy is 3 years old and believes that he really is the star–he just doesn’t feel that he needs to run really fast around the track to prove it to everyone!
He most definitely has an air of importance about him and you can certainly see why. He is well put together and at just around 15.3-16 hands at age 3, he is bound to finish up a bit bigger when he stops growing. He has a lovely way of moving and was so super chill to deal with. He loves to snuggle and be fawned over, and you won’t be able to resist the little white snip on his nose! He is a blank slate to make with him whatever you wish him to be. No injuries or vices.
Located at Fairmount Park Race Track in Collinsville, Illinois.
Syd and Liv (Maclean’s Music – Dowd Chapel, by Stormy Atlantic): 2014 16.2-hand Indiana bred filly
Syd and Liv is a beautiful dark bay filly with nice bloodlines that include Distorted Humor, Fortyniner and Storm Cat.
She is an impressive 16.2 hands and still growing!! This young lady is UNRACED and 100% sound. She was just too slow to even make it to the race track but could easily excel in a variety of disciplines with some additional training. Syd and Liv has clean legs with nice conformation. Once she fills out and gets some more muscle tone she will be stunning and sure to turn heads in the show ring! If you’re looking for a young, blank slate to grow with, Syd and Live will be the perfect project.
She is located at her owner’s farm in Union, Kentucky.
Little Lucy Prado (by Fort Prado, out of Little Miss Lucy): 2014 16.1-hand filly
Gorgeous, stately filly with amazing presence. This girl has the wow factor! She has a huge shoulder and a nice wide chest and she’s still only 3. No vices and no known soundness issues. A fabulous trot to top it all off!
