Zachery5 yo Grey Perch x TB gelding 16.2H. Zachery has matured in so many ways, it’s hard to know where to start describing him. He has moved up to first flight with Blue Ridge Hunt this fall and is jumping their biggest, trappiest fences with ease. He loves to hunt! This past summer, he started eventing and has gone to a dressage show: In three outings, he was never worse than third. He’s had a few jump schools with Kristin Bachman (4 star eventer and Rolex near-winner) who proclaimed him “an amazing, amazing jumper, with the potential to be a really big time horse”. He has three good gaits with an amazing canter but the thing this horse does is, use his back better than any horse I’ve had. He can really bring his back up whether in dressage or over a fence. He’s wonderful in the barn, ties, clips, loads – a really super, athletic & comfortable horse. I personally hunt a lot of the horses for sale on this site, and I have never said I was keeping one but, he’s not for sale during this hunt season – I’m having way too much fun on him – he may be back on the market in the spring.

Thanks to the Matarazzo’s for their purchase of this solid fellow
