MOON MAN WALKING | for sale
Age: 2017 | Sex: Gelding | Breed: Thoroughbred | Height: 16.0 | Option: For Sale
Manny is the type of horse that everyone wants in the barn; sweet, easy to handle, cute under saddle and fun to be around. He’ll follow you around in the field like a puppy and then go to work in the arena when you’re ready. Three clear gaits with a great overreach in the walk and a lovely shoulder. He’s got all the makings for sport and he’s TOTALLY amateur friendly!
With his last start in December 2020, he retired sound and has been lightly restarted. He had just five starts at the track and was not built for speed. More whoa than go is his middle name, you can certainly wear a spur or carry a whip with this cute lil’ turtle. That’s just fine with us as it makes him the perfect amateur’s horse! He’s taken lesson riders over cross rails, hacked around the trails and has had a turn in the dressage tack. He is a snaffle mouth with his breaks solidly in place. He does have a change but needs a bit of conditioning to develop a consistent canter.
He has a sweet expression with kind eyes. He’s well built and a tad butt high at the moment so we anticipate him to get a little bit taller which makes him a perfect height for just about anyone. Good feet, clean tight legs. No known injuries, no vices. Easy to load and trailer, stands on the cross ties, good for the farrier, he needs a clip so we’ll report back how that goes but no issues anticipated. He’s an all around relaxed guy and much more level headed than his age would insinuate. I just can’t say enough good things about this horse. He’s one that we should probably keep for our lesson program but I want to see him out at the shows and lighting up some lucky person’s life.
