Beautiful Eventing Prospect

Traverse City, MI

Winston (aka Sweet Daddy) is an 11 year old OTTB 15.3hh and true black with a heart shaped star. He has been off the track since 2018 and retired sound with multiple starts and a fairly successful career. After a long let down he has been in dressage training for two years with an older amateur in a program but has also had three months of professional training. This lovely gelding has also been started over small fences and shows talent and willingness to jump. He is currently being ridden in an eggbutt snaffle and is schooling basic training level dressage (w/t/c). Winston also yielding off the leg when spiraling on circles and off of the quarter line. He has 3 very comfortable, athletic, and competitive gaits. He wass ready for his first dressage show last fall but his rider broke her foot. While he is still green over fences he shows potential as an excellent 3-day event horse. He has nice gaits that show promise for scores in the 20's in the dressage, and based upon his braveness to jumps, I think he has great potential for the stadium and cross-country as well. His walk has at least a nine inch over track and his trot is very comfortable to sit. His canter is very athletic and still needs more balance. He can be strong in the canter and needs a confident rider. He is being sold because he likes the variety of combined training and his older owner only wishes to ride dressage. No cribbing or other vices. He is stabled at night and does best when turned out with a buddy. He has had no lameness issues, requires no maintenance and is currently barefoot. He has great feet! He does have a hard, cold shin buck on his right front from a racing injury. This has never caused any problems and is barely noticeable. Winston is not spooky, he is used to kids, dogs, tractors, leafblowers, etc. When presented with something new he is more curious than frightened. He clips, loads, ties, and stands for farrier. He loves baths, drinks from the hose and allows you to hose out his sheath as long as the water is warm. He is UTD on all vaccines, de-worming, feet and teeth. He loves to have his head and ears scratched anytime not just after the bridle is removed, loves fuzzy toys and absolutely adores peppermints. Oh yes, he also has a gorgeous tail! Through no fault of his own he is seeking his next great home.(He did have a minor scrape on his near hind with some silver spray for his photo shoot. Never went off, and is now healed).Winston Dressage; Jumping; (Only his 5th time over fences)
