Lovely 10 year old Thoroughbred 15 3 gelding that I bought several years ago as a project horse. Banner was race trained, but never raced. I bought him when he was three years old. He loads easily, stands for the farrier, has never gone without his yearly immunizations (including rabies and west nile virus or coggins testing). He is a pretty easy keeper, eating about 1 1/2 quarts of 12% feed a day with free choice hay. I also give him a biotin supplement. He has no stable vices i.e. he does not crib, weave, paw, bite or kick. He stands for clipping, bathing, grooming, saddling, etc. He gets along well with other horses and places in the lower level in the herd. He moves from finger or leg pressure, lunges, leads, backs up etc. He has all three gaits and a good set of brakes from the seat. I have started him jumping and he was shown several years ago in 'beginner" dressage. He has lovely movement and is a joy to ride. The most successful rider will quiet and focused. In the summer, he shines like a new copper penny in the sun. So, why would anyone part with such a treasure?
I'm essentially retired. I am 62 years old. I no longer train horses. I give a few lessons from time to time, but I don't do structured coaching any longer. My retired Event horse is as much horse as I have time to deal with. Banner needs to be somebody's horse. He needs someone who thinks he is the greatest because he is. Someone who will love him and give him lots of attention and ride him more than once every couple of months which is all he gets now. I'm very fond of this sweet, personable horse. Pictures do not do him justice!
His pedigree includes Seattle Slew, Secretariat, and Mr. Prospector. His full lineage is impressive and available on request.
Banner's price has been raised because of his progress in training. Banner Banner Movie Banner Movie Sequel Banner Goes Bareback!
