This is one of the fanciest geldings we have had the opportunity to represent, and his demeanor, talent, quality, and versatility make him an ideal candidate for 940 All-Star Program. Get ready to get noticed everywhere you go, with this incredibly kind hearted and willing soul. ???????????? ????????????-???????????????? ⭐️ ???????????????????????????? aka “Casper” is a 15 hand 2018 model double registered AQHA/APHA gelding by Colonel Shining Gun. His sire is an NRHA Money earner of over $115,000- with accolades including the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games Silver Medalist, the 2014 NRHA Open Derby Level 4 Champion (scoring a whopping 229.5), the 2013 NRHA Open Grand Prix $37,000 added Champion (with another whopping score of 231.5), with many more notable accomplishments. Colonel Shining Gun has sired money earners that have produced just under $1,000,000! Casper is out of the mare Guns And Whoases (by the $3 Million Dollar Sire Nu Chex To Cash), who was an NRHA money earner herself, and has produced over $x,xxx.
Bred and raised by the 2020 NRHA Million Dollar Owner- Hilldale Farms, Casper is the product of a very successful breeding operation that has produced NRHA Futurity Champions, NRHA, AQHA, NRCHA, APHA, and PHBA World Champions, year-end High Point, and Honor Roll Champions. Casper has been in professional reining training since he was two years old, and began his show career in the level 4 open with Jared Leclair in 2021. What is really neat about this gelding is that he has not been over shown, and is the same horse in and out of the show pen- meaning no funny business or bad habits! In 2022, he was shown by a non pro, and at their first show together- placed in the Top 5 in the Rookie Level 1 & 2 at the Warm Up Series in Waco, Tx. So, not only is this gelding incredibly talented in his reining maneuvers, he is also VERY beginner/amateur friendly! Whoagun lives up to his name by being a MASSIVE stopper, but is also very well rounded in his other reining maneuvers too! He is really easy and honest to change leads on, spins huge, and is a blast to circle! He rates back to you with ease. He has recently spent the last few months in training with Baruch Reining Horses, and has really come into himself as a solid mount for any level of rider.
While this flashy gelding could continue to have a successful career in the reining, he also has the credentials to be one of the fanciest ranch riding horses you have ever seen! Being every bit of 15 hands, this big beautiful mover LOVES riding outside, and has a very smooth and fancy extended trot. As we mentioned in his sale video, Casper moves very nicely off of your seat, and is really easy to navigate. He will work a gate, and is very expressive and happy doing a ranch riding pattern, or exploring new things. He goes through and over just about any obstacle, and is very quiet in new situations. He is very consistent in and out of the arena. He has been lightly started around cattle, and seems to have a bit of cow to him also! With his size, bone, and rate this guy could also go on to make one heck of a head horse also!
Casper has a very sweet personality, and loves to be loved on. If you scratch his chest/neck area he will raise his head up like a giraffe and make the goofiest face. He also is very well versed in bath time, and will play with the hose too. I would describe his personality as a little boy with a big heart! He loves to adventure, and accomplish new things- and is the type of equine partner that will take you very far in the show pen, or as a caddillac recreational horse. He is such a character, but what really makes him stand out is how he is so great in new environments. Casper is the "born broke” type, and it would not take much to get him acclimated to any task at hand!
Casper is 100% sound with no vices. Stands tied, loads, hauls, no crib, bite, buck, or weave. There are no holes with this guy.
Whether your goal is to hit the show pen, haul to some ropings, or ride out on the trail- They don’t make them any nicer than this dude right here. Feel free to contact me with any questions at - Click here to reveal phone number -
