Tripoli5yo Clyde x TB gelding. Currently a bit over 16.2H, will finish up 16.3 or more. This horse was born broke! He is by the TB stallion Mancel who is the sire of several horses we have sold in the past (see Gabriel and Jake on the sold page) and they all really are in a class of their own – just climb right up and go on with them. They could all jump – Gabriel is currently hunting with Greenspring hounds and is a packer over their stiff fences. Trip will be exactly the same. He has an amazing canter stride, is balanced and light in the bridle and will do whatever is asked. He’s a lovely horse with a light bay color and two high whites and a blaze. He’s been going on hunt trail rides with 30+ horses and is amazingly quiet in company and has hunted second flight a few times this season. His jump is fabulous, light off the ground and upon landing. He’s amazingly tolerant of less than perfect riders and lovely to handle on the ground. Stands tied, clips, loads, etc. He went to the Potomac Hunter Trials this past December and brought home a 3rd place ribbon out of a class of 20+ horses over an outside course! He’ll start his event career this spring. If you are looking for an absolutely extraordinary temperament with a boat load of athletic talent, don’t pass this young horse by.
