Eventing, Jumping, Youth
Thoroughbred Gelding for Sale in Shippensburg, PA
Elijah is a super sweet, talented OTTB that has the potential to go far. In just four months off the track he is proven to be a fast learner with a great work ethic. Perfect for a beginner rider at the w/t and a novice rider at the w/t/c and over fences. Elijah is a good baby sitter and will jog for a beginner or kick it into high gear for a more advanced rider. He has been to several local schooling shows and calms down quickly to focus on his work. He earned just over $100,000 on the track, proving his work ethic and determination, which he applies whole-heartedly to his new career. Good bareback w/t/c and outside, no buck, rear, or spook. Elijah jumps like a pro and clearly loves it. With his uphill movement and careful attitude, he is clearing 3'3" without issue, is a simple ride, and could easily go higher. Paired with his long stride and love for speed, he would make a competitive jumper. However, he is also a fantastic babysitter and will trot over cross rails and small verticals with a beginner. He is brave to his fences, has his leads over fences as well as changes, will jump at an angle, and doesn't refuse. With his solid dressage basics, Elijah could also make a good 3-day event prospect. He has basic lateral movements (shoulder-in, haunches-in, leg yield) and comes into a soft training level frame with correct work from behind. Elijah also has excellent ground manners. He stands with the lead rope swung over his neck, ties, clips, bathes, is good for shots, and loads on a trailer. He would make a great first horse for someone working with an instructor since he is still young and occasionally has baby moments. However, he has a good heart and even when he misbehaves, he makes sure no one gets hurt.
