Experienced training level horse perfect for a YR or AA looking to move up through the levels

Low Key Obsession “Rico” is an 9YO 16.1h chestnut TB gelding. He was completely produced by a young rider through training level without ever having a cross country penalty. Rico is brave and uncomplicated on XC and has only had one career rail in show jumping. He has many top 10 placings and has won at training level on a 29.1. He has also won multiple TIP awards. This guy would be great for an ambitious amateur or young rider as he has plenty of scope to move up through the levels but at the same time is very forgiving, catty, and a great confidence builder. Price includes Voltaire saddle.

Super fun horse 16.1hh Unraced TB Gelding

Scrappy is a 12 yr, 16.1 hh, bay TB gelding that did not race or train at the track. He is an easy ride on the flat and to fences with an adjustable canter and a tidy jumping technique. He enjoys work and tries to please. He has some show experience in dressage and lower jumper classes, schooled XC, and has been on trails. We think he could perform well in several disciplines- dressage, H/J and eventing. No vices, easy to handle, loads and trailers well. Somewhat atypical for a thoroughbred – he has wonderful feet is a very ‘good-doer’ tending to get chubby. Located in Lexington, KY near the Kentucky Horse Park. $10,000.

Flashy Athletic TB gelding

“Frankie” is as flashy as they get, turning heads wherever we go. This 7yo 15.3 gelding is easy to be around on the ground, he is an easy keeper – even going barefoot with no issues. Hacks out both alone or in a group and is quite brave when doing so.

A fantastic jumper, Frankie competed this summer at recognized horse trials at Beginner Novice, where he scored a 32 on the flat and loved every minute on XC. Can get forward to fences, but is super brave – including ditches, water, banks (up/down/into water/out of water), and has never met a fence he didn’t like. He gets the step with no problem and always jumps in classic form. Is inconsistent on the flat and needs a rider which can help him with this aspect of his training. Not for a beginner.

Best suited for a gutsy teen or young adult who wants a pocket rocket of a ride on XC and can finish him in their own way. I am happy to release all vet records including a PPE from two years ago for anyone moving forward with a purchase. Please do not ask me otherwise. Mild cribber but controlled with a strap. A new baby has left me with time to only ride one horse right now and he needs to find his person. Currently not in work for the past two months due to time and weather. Asking $3000 negotiable for a quick sale. Located in Lexington KY 15 minutes from the KHP. Videos on youtube (user KMBrennan03).

Date A Saint – Saint

10 year old, 16.3 hh TB gelding. Solid training level horse that has competed up to preliminary. Saint is brave and uncomplicated over fences with a great canter and scopey jump. Would be best suited for junior/young rider or adult amateur looking to do 1.10/1.15 in the jumpers or learn the lower levels of eventing.
Ties, loads, hacks out alone or in a group. Stands well for vet and farrier.
Located in Lexington, KY.

Cole, 9 yr old, 16 hh, TB Dark Bay Gelding Upper Level Potential

Cole is a 16hh dark bay OTTB gelding with a lighter build. He has an athletic, scopey jump and soft loose movement. We intended for him to stay and become a top class eventer with us, but we think he will be better suited to a “my only horse” situation and not one of 20 as he is here. Nick also prefers a hotter horse as Cole has a quiet temperament.

Cole has excellent ground manners and is easy to trailer, handle, hold, etc. He’s easy to hack and ride. And would be just as happy competing at the lower levels. He’s been turned out with some of our mares and he’s very gentle around them.

He started his competition career in 2018 finishing 6th at novice at Spring Run at his first event. His racing name was Cole Cole and he was sourced by Brookwood Farm Sporthorses.

15 short video clips of Cole have been added to our Wainui farm youtube page.
