Swinging Star - $8500
“Swinging Star” - 16.2 1/2hh 2014 Gelding sired by Malibu Moon Out of a Dynaformer mare. BIG bodied guy, suitable for taller riders.
Star last ran in November 2020, retiring and coming to us. We have given him some downtime and let him be a horse over the last month and a half. He is now ready to start back into a new job! This stunning gelding had a good career at the track and retired with no known injuries. He has no stable vices, stands well for blanketing, bathing and cross ties quietly. We have brought him UTD on farrier and chiropractic care. He turns out in the meadow alone or in a group (fine with geldings and mares). Though well mannered in the barn, he’s a total jock... you know, the guy that KNOWS he’s pretty and isn’t afraid to flaunt it. He has a big personality, a shot of whiskey kind of guy. Though sweet, he is also ornery. Not a mean bone in his body, he is just playful.
Star is an impressive gelding that is about as well put together as they come. He is uphill and compact with a great shoulder and hind end. He is a lovely mover and has a ton of push. We think he‘s a fabulous dressage or Eventing candidate, but could go a variety of directions given his workmanlike attitude and athletic ability. Just an all around fun horse! Star is big and powerful, we evaluated him both a liberty and under saddle. He has a great reach through his shoulder, with a huge canter stride that leant itself handy over fences. Down the jump chute he was brave and honest. Under saddle, Star is all business. He went right to work and is a “yes man”. He tried absolutely everything we asked of him and with a good attitude and work ethic. He walk trot cantered both directions (canter is very comfy!), gave us a lead change and was even started over poles and some little cross rails / flower boxes etc. We were blown away by his willingness, as he was both away from his home farm (we hauled in) and there were a lot of distractions going on with another member of the property doing target practice. Star did not miss a beat and was always present, waiting for his next task. He even rode back up to the barn and stood quietly for dismounting.
At this point, he would be fine for a confident ammy. He’s a highly intelligent animal, who thrives with someone that is equal.
He is RRP eligible.
