Spud is a 7 year old, 16.1h OTTB gelding. He retired from racing in 2017 as a three year old with a small amount of starts. Since then he has gained a ton of experience in the jumper, hunter, and equitation rings. Spud has shown in the 1.10m jumper and equitation classes, as well as the 3’6” hunters with multiple placings and wins.
Although with a bit more work he could possibly move up, he seems to be most comfortable in the 1m-1.10m range and would be a great horse for a good riding kid or amateur looking to move up. He is well broke on the flat, easily schooling first level dressage. Sometimes he can get a bit hot while jumping. He has not competed in eventing, but has schooled cross country with no issues and could easily excel in eventing as well.
He is great to work with on the ground and stands in the cross ties, baths, clips, and is good for the farrier. Also trailers well and has no vices or maintenance. Currently lives outside 24/7 in a mixed herd and can be shoed or barefoot. He is good stalled as well, and is great in show environments.
Located south of Calgary for trials and asking low-medium 5 figures. Please pm for more photos, videos, or if interested. PPE welcome, up to date on vaccines and coggins. He does have an old injury that required surgery but it has caused no problems since.
