Competed prelim/training level eventing. At 16.3h this 9 year old has substantial presence while maintaining a great work ethic. Has competed his first h/j show as champion in the 2′ hunters class. It was his first time around a course and he had correct leads, perfect striding, and tight knees. Video available. Great pedigree – grandfather: Carson City (he looks just like him!), Mr. Prospector, Blushing groom, Northern Dancer, Gate Dancer!
Vegas was in a pasture escaping accident. He got out in the middle of the night in early 2013 and was caught in the cow/barbed wire fence down the road. He lacerated his left front bicep deeply, but 100% healable. After 6 months of laser therapy, what was supposed to be 1 year recovery he was fine as new! He was put on the back burner with the influx of new OTTBs to be trained and sold and we played around with him, bringing him back to newer levels of jumping talent that we hadn’t seen before! He has jumped 4’6 post accident and his dressage is still very collected and beautiful.
