Ranger is a 8 year old OTTB. I am selling him strictly as a prospect. I bought him straight off the track and gave him a year off to learn to just be a horse. I do not have his Jockey Club papers. I started him last spring with just basic hacking but then I ran out of time, so he went back to just being a pasture horse. He's jumped over a couple of cross rails last spring and jumped them without any hesitation. I did have him in Georgia the past couple of months and did return him to training. I mostly focused on flat work now as I want him to have a solid foundation. At this point, with the weather, he has about 3 weeks of riding. I had him on the hotwalker while there to get him fit as he is very out of shape and needs to be conditioned. I have returned to St Louis and have not had a chance to get back on him since he has been home so he is back to being a lazy, spoiled pasture horse.
Mostly he needs a job and I just have to many horses to give him the time he deserves. He is good for farrier, baths, grooming and cross ties. I did body clip him recently he stood without any problems. He is shod every 6 weeks and currently only has front shoes. He loads right in the trailer. His only vice is that he does cribb. I keep a collar on him and that helps. He is UTD on all his shots and coggins. He is not a beginner horse. He needs an experienced rider that has the time to bring him along. All reasonable offers will be considered. More than anything I would like to find him a good home that will use him to his full potential. Photos and video taken on 2/26/13.

I would be happy to deliver him within the area for the cost of fuel.
