Vows Son - SOLD

Updated: Jan 1

“Vow’s Son”, 2014 16.2hh TB gelding sired by Broken Vow out of a Smarty Jones dam. You will not find a more hard knocking, classy individual. Despite the wrapper, there is nothing plain about this guy. He has a huge presence to him and commands attention. He’s got lovely bone, a fantastic foot and is just overall correct. He had a good career at the track, starting 65 times. You will be hard pressed to find tighter or cleaner legs. There is something to be said for these horses that have consistent, long careers as he has. He IS RRP eligible. “Red” as we call him in the barn is a total professional. He settled into off the track life seamlessly. He crossties perfectly, is quiet in the barn, good for grooming, bathing and the farrier. He trailers very well and immediately settles into new surroundings. He’s impeccably mannered and walks around with just a lead rope, he does not need a chain. He has no stable vices.

We’ve included a lengthy video below that shows him doing a number of things around the barn, in addition to movement and jump at liberty. This guy just ran at the beginning of the month and is already a lovely mover with a jump to match - I can only image how he’s going to be with some more downtime! Red has got a lovely, flat kneed trot with great reach and a balanced canter to match. I was particularly impressed with him in the jump chute, this guy doesn’t bat an eye at anything and is extremely intelligent. Red is a true pleaser and eagerly loped down to all of the fences. I particularly liked how smart he was to them, finding his distances and adjusting as he went. Red is a horse that has the temperament and athletic ability to go nearly any direction. Given his go with the flow attitude and quiet demeanor, I believe he’d make a good amateurs prospect. Red was recently restarted and is everything we thought he’d be and more. He quietly stands at the mounting block, rides in a snaffle and is just the most happy go lucky horse you could ever want. He is extremely smart under saddle and tries so very hard. He picks up new things very quickly because of this! Red moves nicely off the leg and is learning to work into the bridle. He did see a few little fences under saddle and was a rockstar. Point and shoot, get out of his way and he just does his thing, landing in a lovely little canter on the backside. As if all of that wasn’t enough, he’ll take a serious joke! Something to be noted also are his FANTASTIC brakes. Red is a total unicorn and deserves nothing but the best! If I could fill my barn with a hundred of him I would, he is all heart and just a kind soul.
