Carbe Cassio

Carbe Cassio

Beautiful young hunter prospect from top hunter lines (Cabardino & Rio Grande), owned by a professional and given an excellent start. Walks, trots & canters under saddle, goes on trail rides, and always gets a glowing report from the vet and farrier. Very easy going and brave, willingly crosses water and goes over logs on the trail. Shows plenty of scope free jumping but still growing and has not yet started jumping under saddle. Already a barn favorite; clips, ties, bathes, loads, and does whatever else is asked of him.

AF Simpatico

AF Simpatico

Scopey young import that could go in any direction. Nice typey eq horse shape, slow and quiet hunter rhythm, or plenty of jump for future Jr/AO Jumper goals. Shown lightly in the Baby Greens with zero prep and has been just as easy at home. Rides very light and simple for his size and never over jumps. Huge stride that may be a bit much for kids but otherwise suitable for juniors & amateurs. Great personality and ready to take you wherever you want to go.

For competitive Small Junior Hunter goals, graduating pony riders, or anyone that struggles with accuracy. Scopey & saintly jumper with a superb front end, auto-changes, and lots of experience at the miss. Ribboned in 3’3” Handy at 2017 Junior Hunter Finals and has additional success in the Greens & Childrens. Super sweet with a big heart and easily mistaken for a gelding. Loves long walks & grass, a floating rein, and her French Link Happy Mouth snaffle. Gets along with everyone and adores a rider that lets her do her job.

Eligible everything and ready for your quality finish.

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

Trainer favorite! Not spooky, doesn’t have to school the show jumps, same reliable performer in every ring. Knows all the flatwork and will shine as a versatile jr/am hunter, derby & equitation horse. 3rd in his first Hunter Prix this summer, miles & ribbons in the Pre-Childrens and Younger Children’s with the owner, and still eligible 3’6” Green. Great athlete with plenty of 3’6” scope or suitable for a less experienced rider in a program. Very consistent and safe; even the show moms take this one to graze!
