Atticus is a 15.2hh thoroughbred gelding that anyone can ride. he made over $100,000 at the racetrack, but has been retired from racing for the last four years and has been a pleasure and using horse. Atticus has a great temperament and doesn't get rattled easily. He has been ridden by our 12 yro niece for hours (she didn't want to get off of him). Atticus can handle every situation great he will cross water, walk down streams, he rides great on the trails, will walk over fallen trees and go thru thick brush with no spook. Atticus is smooth, smooth at every gait, he will walk, trot and canter on a loose rein.Atticus has a good neck rein, back up and stop. He will be great for English or Western riding, poles, barrels, mounted patrol, endurance, drill team, a lesson horse, walk-trot, or lead line. He is very stout and will hold up the largest of riders.
Atticus is very gentle with great ground manners, easy to catch and gets along great with other horses, mares and gelding alike. He is easy to clip, bathe, saddle/bridle, pick up his feet and will stand tied, stands well for mounting and stands great for the farrier. He loads and haul very well. He's an easy keeper. Loves to be pampered and groomed. Atticus does the thoroughbred breed proud, a beautiful bay gelding with dapples on his hips, star,strip and snip on his face, four white socks, beautiful black mane and tail. Atticus has a beautiful head and face that would make anybody proud, complimented with a big stout neck and shoulder, straight back and nice wide chest and hips. Atticus is a horse that a youngster could ride and groom, he will fit the novice or the pro.
