Tucker : Foaled 2006, 16.2h Gelding. Tucker is a true WAR HORSE!
This beautiful boy is the Ultimate Sport Horse. With over 66 races and 80+ foxhunts, hunter paces, trail rides & countless lessons..... nothing else needs to be said! Sadly, I am putting him up for sale. Tucker is gorgeous with show presence, sharpness and totally game for whatever you want to do with him. He is a sure footed, sturdy, give you his heart all day long, TB! He is a very good looking Classic Thoroughbred. Tucker is put together well and has great movement. He is absolutely beautiful in every way. Tucker is a great brained big nice classic athletic Thoroughbred Sport Horse. Tucker was a staff horse and also can go in the field. He has lead the first flight, 2nd flight, hilltopped and layed the drag, and a 1st whipper-in horse for over a season. He has been ridden as a back up huntsman's horse too. There is nothing in the hunt this horse CANNOT DO! He LOVES LEADING 1ST FLIGHT! This OTTB Sport Horse is "all business". Hand him a mint and he's your boy!
Tucker has been giving lessons for two consistent Summers. He jumps well, is extremely forgiving to his rider's mistakes, has his changes with a bit of effort and really can do anything your hearts desire. He carries himself absolutely brilliantly in the ring and for the lady who only wants to flat and work on her dressage skills, he's flexible for this too. I cannot say a negative thing about this horse. He is a super comfortable horse with rhythmic gaits and the greatest stretchy trot around! A dream to school in the ring and take out of the ring xc, hack around, up the road, to a clinic, you name it. Nothing will phase him and he is everything I am stating, plus more. During warm weather, in the ring, he might need a lite spur, but not always.
I am offering this super OTTB Sport Horse for a lease or for sale. This is my personal horse and it breaks my heart to sell him, but I must due to work and responsibilities and do not have the time he needs. He's a good boy and knows and loves a job. I would prefer and happily consider an on farm lease with a local rider willing to do a 1/2 lease too.
This big OTTB Sport Horse is a true WAR HORSE, therefore, might have some things pop up on xrays (they do!, not lying!:), but so would I if someone was scanning me. We are not perfect but we still get the job done! This boy has never taken 1 lame step since I have him and he is the strongest, sturdiest thoroughbred I have had the gifted experience to bring along. After more than considerable amount of hunting time on this boy....he has passed every test on the planet, in my opinion in mind, athleticism & soundness.
Will lease only to a schooled dressage/equitation or /hunter rider. He has done enough racing around at the track and also in the Hunt field and I would desire a more calmer steady life for him.. Off premise may be considered but only to the best candidate. Baybreezeestate@aol.com 631 767 4972.
