Eventing Schoolmaster

Ole Boy (“Bobby”) is a 2004 17hh Thoroughbred. In perfect health, no current maintenance. Produced to Intermediate by Will Coleman before being competed by a young adult, taking her to Prelim and instilling confidence in eventing until she graduated from college.

He is currently competing at Preliminary level and fit for CCI2-S or CCI2-L. Frequently scores in the 20’s, extensive competition record with many wins. Multiple year end awards received from Area V and USEA for himself and his rider at Training and Prelim – Most recently, he was the 2019 Area V Training Horse of the Year.

His last event was February 2020 at the Three Lakes Horse Trials in Florida, placing 5th in the OP with no jumping and a dressage score of 28.

Bobby schools dressage competently at 4th level. As an ex-steeplechaser, he is a natural cross country horse and will show you the ropes. He won the Plantation CIC* in 2011 (now CCI2-S), and would be a great young rider horse for a rider on a budget looking for an experienced horse at the level.

Well behaved, snaffle ride, very elegant. He is always friendly and adores attention.

Only to a good home with great trainer program. Located in Texas.

Fancy OTTB with Upper Level Potential

Henry aka Take Your Guns is a 16.3 hh 2014 ottb. He raced and won at the lower level of racing but when bumped up to the next class of racing he did not continue to win so he retired sound from racing. He had 6+ months of let down time out in a giant Kentucky pasture with other retired geldings prior to me acquiring him. He was started back under saddle on November 22nd and has been a gentleman under saddle since day one. Henry loads, clips, bathes, and is great for the farrier. Henry has upper level potential and loves to work/have a job. He is ready to go do a BN or Novice dressage test and his jumping is really coming along for only having jumped a handful of times. His canter is to die for and is getting stronger with the addition of jumping. He hacks out alone or in a group and over bridges. He is naturally a very brave horse. He is going to make someone a really amazing horse. I wish I could keep him myself but unfortunately I won’t have time for two with going back to school. Eleven Thousand and RRP Eligible. Located in Washington.
