Meet Artisan, a 17.2hh 10 year old bay Thoroughbred gelding.
Looking for a gentle giant for a tall rider? Artisan is your guy! We often refer to him as "Clifford the big red dog," he's just such a giant lovable kind soul. He has lead changes, and is the "Magical Unicorn for the tall rider who needs a steady-eddie to learn the ropes on." He can easily take a rider from the Walk/Trot ring to the 3' divisions, and he is definitely a horse that a beginner rider can grow with.... (read more)
A trainer's dream. He does not require any show prep, he enjoys the show atmosphere and is easy and laid back to handle away from home. Shown in the Hunter ring in the 2'6 and 2'9 classes, he is currently Reserve Champion for the year in the state hunter/jumper association for the 2'6 open Modified Hunter division.
His barn name is "Smith." He will happily trail ride in a group (group being at least one other horse). He's not the bravest equine in town, but he's not easily spooked either. He can hang in the pasture for months and he is the same horse every time you pull him out to ride. He happily stands for the farrier, he clips and easily trailer loads.
He went off to college with his owner and was a barn favorite at school. Sadly his owner has graduated from college this year and now Smith is being offered for lease or sale.
Private family farm focusing on sales of quality horses. Currently specializing in second careers for off the track Thoroughbreds.
