Thoroughbred Gelding for Sale in Hanover, IL

Beautiful and sweet with lots of talent. "Owen" is a lovely Thoroughbred gelding that never even went to the track; he is unraced (Registered with the Jockey Club as Big Ole Bob, unraced). He comes with solid training level Dressage with blue ribbons at that level, working on his first level tricks. Honest jumper and in a semi-regular jumping program with gymnastics or courses of up to 3 foot +, in arena and cross country obstacles. Trail ridden, gone past cows and through water. He is my own personal horse of three years and I am finding it hard to make time for him at the end of the day. He has been to some local schooling shows and did incredibly well and winning at dressage, hunter under saddle classes and eventing. Also jumped courses of new jumps with ease. I would like to find a dressage, pony clubber, event or hunter home that will have fun playing with him, going on adventures, and bringing home ribbons. He is a sweet and gentle horse that just flourishes with regular attention and work--I feel he can do more than we have so far, or be a fun horse for an intermediate rider to learn with. I have really enjoyed working and training him, and I feel he is ready to move on. UPDATE: Owen competed at two mini-events this summer at the Novice level placed 3rd and 4th. It was a lot of fun and he did everything asked of him! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rEuvV795dWg -- Show Jumping round at horse show last summer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7lm74Gz7AY --first jump of Cross Country Jumping at a show last summer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdEywtP88JU -- at a dressage show, placing first in all his training level classes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZvZaC-77W5s -- at a small indoor schooling hunter show in 2012 (his first show and he won all the classes, granted there were not a lot of people!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrHnp8xWRG0 -- flatwork at home Please inquire for more information.
