Those who know me will know how hard this is.
This is my favourite horse (& I have a lot to choose from) but as a racehorse trainer & breeder - now hes retired I simply to not have the time he deserves & must look to find 'his person' as he deserves more one on one time that he thrives on.

Rick (Artifact) is an extremely attractive and well bred TB gelding. He is measured at 158cm (so he can show as a Park Hack). Rick is 8 years old.
He raced both on the flat & over jumps and was the most professional horse you could ever meet at the races with & extremely good jump (announcer has commented about his good jump 5x in a race).

He has the greatest work ethic of any horse I've ever known and loves to be worked & to learn.

I have been using Rick (chosen due to being the most trainable of all my horses so I can get the most out of my courses) to learn in hand and under saddle Bio mechanics and Rehabilitation exercises which are based on Classical Dressage so he can do all his lateral work & collection work in hand to a good standard. As such he is extremely good to handle on the ground and to lunge. He can also be ridden bitless with a classical dressage cavesson. He is brave and very good to hack out - he has no spook, rear or buck. He is however a very responsive and sensitive horse and so needs soft hand & empathetic rider/owner. I say that he & I have a telepathic link - I only think what I want him to do & it is done but he will not do well with a rider with 'loud' instructions. He can get 'hot' (although always safe) but is getting better and better the more time off the track (retired August 17 and started back under saddle in November 17 - as such could suit for Beyond the Barriers). Does windsuck.

Double clear at first horse trial, A&P show, beach and farm riding. Excels at them all. Shod in front & registered NZEF. It goes without saying that he is great to shoe, catch, float & clip.
