Talladega as I call him or "city strut" is an 8 year old thoroughbred gelding. He had a past of racing and about 30 to 40 grand in earnings. Will email pedigree. Only selling because I am having financial issues. This horse is my world and my rock. He excelled at barrels and poles as well as trail riding and knows his job and finishes with great times and is confident in those disciplines. Practiced upon natural horsemanship. He does however have a lot of get up and go but will slow down with the right bit. He listens to voice commands farley well and knows many tricks. He has placed in several barrel shows and will be rodeo ready with the Right rider. His only vice is trailering. He tends to panic unless given a calming suppliment and we havnt been able to correct that. However he does great in an open stalk trailer. He has trouble being tied as well and I feel its a flashback to his racing days . He will stand by you to be tacked etc. Other than that he is a no buck no rear no spook horse. He is sound. He has been started over fences and first level dressage. Just needs more time put into him under an English saddle. I trained him myself and he never has failed to impress me. It breaks my heart to see him go. Utd on all shots coggins and shoes. This is a very hard choice for me. Serious inquires only. He is my star. It's time he gets to be noticed.
