Lil' Ricky is a 5 year old gelding Thoroughbred. He was briefly raced and only had 9 starts during his race career. I received Lil' Ricky as a 3 year old severely under weight. I put weight on him and slowly restarted him again under saddle. At the beginning he did wonderful with his training, under saddle and in hand. However, as he gained weight he developed an excess of energy and naughty behaviors/attitude. He was cleared by my vet when he was 3 and recently a chiropractor to eliminate any factors that could cause this change.... (read more) He is up to date on current coggins/shots. Lil' Ricky needs one on one attention, with someone who can put in the time and training necessary. He has shown a ton of potential as a dressage or trail horse. He rides in a snaffle or hackamore. He has more whoa than go. He is not suitable for a beginner. Some of his nasty behaviors involve kicking out and bucking under saddle. He has experience in some dressage and off-property schooling. When he was first training he was doing flying changes with ease. Lil' Ricky is a major project, but with his young age combined with the right handler I believe he will develop into a great sport horse.
