Sterling (aka Finny) is a promising young prospect with very smooth gaits, a business like attitude and calm demeanor. He is by the imported stallion Sempatico M and out of a petite AQHA mare. His tall stockings and tasteful stripe draw the eye and then you are captivated by the good rhythm and balance. He offers clean flying changes on the lunge and in the pasture - but has not played with them much undersaddle yet. He enjoys a varied training program - hacking out mixed with ring work. He has very limited jumping mileage (I’m a DQ) but has popped over logs, x rails, basic verticals, Liverpool’s, actual water jumps and small walls. He is currently 15.2 and has recently started to look growthy, but should not go past 16 hands at maturity.Finny learns quickly and would be best suited to an intermediate rider - he has not learned any bad habits - but it would be a shame if he did! He is uncomplicated to ride - but is not quite an autopilot horse (yet). Finny has traveled away from home for hacking, schooling, overnight sessions and done group lessons in new facilities. He has been a star so far and exceeded expectations with his grounded good character. He had a second jump school with a junior rider on 3/21 and did clean changes as well as 2’11” with no issues. He is a push/spur ride and very chill about jumping. We are hoping to get out and show as soon as his “team” is vaccinated for COVID.
No vices, good for vet, farrier, dentist and clipping. Loads easily and ships quietly.
