SideHustle

SideHustle

Freshly imported & dreamy to work with; comes out willing every day and is both easy & consistent under saddle. Really lovely mover with a slow arc over the jumps & a great mind for an amateur owner. Ready for 3’ Green debut and jumps around small 2’6” courses with kids & adults at home. Beautiful to look at and absolutely wonderful to have in the barn. Simple enough for a jr/am in a program & equally enticing for a professional to show in the Greens.

Handsome head-turner that’s up for anything in the show ring. Huge record of Ch/AA Jumper prizes, junior equitation experience, Open Jumper ribbons through 1.30m, and top ribbons for a timid amateur in the 2’6” Hunters most recently. Gentle, quiet, generous, and a real trier whose favorite speed is slow. Can do anything from Long Stirrup Hunters to High Ch/AA Jumpers & would be a wonderful family horse. Super easy to manage in the barn & also great to ride on trails. Offers a little something for riders of every level to enjoy.

Cavalor

Cavalor

Handsome teacher that plays well in every ring and has years of experience in the Childrens Jumpers, Childrens Hunters & Childrens Medals. Big jump, great movement, and lots of step. Low in blood and has all kinds of fancy flatwork. Very handy for riders starting in the 3’ Hunters/Medals & aiming for the 1.10m Childrens. Also happily jumps around the cross-country fences & would be lovely in the dressage ring. Sweet in-your-pocket personality with the best ground manners in the barn. Very calm, cool & collected whether at home or away.
