16.2 hh Dark Bay Thoroughbred Gelding
EXPERIENCE & TRAINING - Furio began training
in March '06 and shows potential for hunters, equitation, or dressage.
He has a beautiful, relaxed frame and a quiet and confident way
of going. He is confident over 2'9" and will progress. He
is accustomed to turn out with other geldings and is always
easy to catch in the field. He is polite around the barn and stands
quietly for bathing, will cross tie for mane pulling, braiding,
clipping, and farrier work. He is comfortable in the barn and in
the arena with and without companions. He loads into and out of
the trailer easily, hauls well, and will tie to the side. He has
a polite, friendly, and curious personality; he loves the company
and affection of humans. Furio has shown several times since I
adopted him in 2006.

CONFORMATION & MOVEMENT - Furio is big bodied
with a robust frame, level top-line, broad, muscular chest, and
sloping shoulder. He has a very elegant look (lots of chrome!),
ample talent, courage, and willing personality that make a great
show horse. His
facial expressions are always kind, thoughtful, and curious. He
has solid, blemish-free legs. He has a beautiful trot and an easy
canter with two easy leads.
HISTORY - Furio was adopted from the Last Chance
Corral in March 2006. His Jockey Club name is Smart Glory, but
he does not have a tattoo (has never raced).
POTENTIAL - He would be an easy transition from
a rider accustomed to riding lesson horses. He shows potential
for hunters and has the maneuverability of a reliable equitation
mount. He would be an excellent mount for an adult to enjoy in
any aspect of showing or pleasure riding. He is a young, cute,
and sound prospect for a less experienced rider to progress on.
Furio would best perform and progress under the guidance of a Walk,
Trot, Canter Level Rider or greater.
SPECIFICS - full-cheek Waterford, regular
bridle with standing martingale, a regular tree saddle with a
52" girth, and a
80" blanket. Furio does not require a standing martingale
but keeps his head up better with one.
VETERINARY & SOUNDNESS - He has not been hurt,
lame, or ill since his arrival on the farm.
VIDEO CLIPS - a few very old clips and three that
I'm not entirely pleased with as they were filmed just two weeks
into me getting back in the saddle after my pregnancy. Furio had
been gone all summer on a lease and had lost some of his usual
DVD - Call to reserve a copy of the next DVD featuring footage
of Furio and others available for sale.
Price subject to increase with training and show experience/ success.
