Trago: 3 YO TB

Trago is a three year old, unraced thoroughbred. He was trained at the track but deemed too slow. He is extremely athletic and willing. He has been schooled around a two foot stadium course and a *small* starter cross country course. Trago does banks, ditches, gallops through water, will go out with a group or on his own, and hacks around on the buckle. He easily goes into a dressage frame and picks up both leads willingly.

Trago stands calmly in cross ties for grooming, bathing, farriers, etc. He is a very easy keeper only getting a handful of feed in the morning and hay throughout the day. His easy going, but curious personality is loved throughout the barn. This will be a cool project for pretty much any rider with the appropriate help. Located in Kentucky.

She is a good mover and jumper, and even has a great lead change. Additionally, Tigger is uncomplicated and kind, making her suitable for a junior, young rider or adult amateur. But she is also talented enough for a professional. Located in Pennsylvania.

Straight Class: 4yo TB Prospect No Question Baby

No Question Baby is that thoroughbred that everyone is looking for. Affectionately known as Reagan around the barn, she is the total package. A 2014 model, she stands at 16.2hh is as chromed as a bay can get. She is by Giant Oak out of a Langfuhr mare, with true sport horse lines. Reagan only ran once in 2017, and then was retired sound and turned out on her owners farm for a year.

She began her life as a sport horse this summer, and has taken to it like a fish to water. Truly believe she would thrive in a program either with a professional who wants a new upper level prospect, but would also be easy to finish by a competent junior in a program who is looking for that young rider mount. Beautiful to flat, with a tempo unbeknownst her age, she moves easily off of your leg and is quickly moving up the training pyramid. In addition, she canters down to jumps with cadence and rhythm, with a lovely hind end that will never touch a rail.

She has schooled both on property and off, and is an extremely independent individual. Currently jumping courses in the ring and out – water, ditches, and banks are no problem for this young prospect. Has attended local hunter paces with pleasure and will be entered in her first event this fall if not sold. Located in Kentucky.
