UPDATED: Flashy, novice level eventer, ready to move up! Upper level potential!

Smetana is a 2015 thoroughbred gelding, sire is Union Rags and dam is Celebrate. He only raced one time, was too slow. After racing he has had professional training with dressage, eventing, and show jump trainers.

He has extensive show miles at the novice level and is ready to move up to training. At shows he generally scores low 30s, with a few high 20s. I have also shown him at a few training level jumper shows and am looking to show him training level at his next event. I have competed him at local shows near me as well as away where he had to stable and he has no show anxiety, he is just as chill at each show as he is at home. He has also competed down at WEF in both show jumping and dressage shows.

Smetana is very easy to ride and needs more leg than whoa. For the dressage he has an easy counter canter, leg yields, shoulder in, haunches in, and has had long line training as well. He is very flashy and has upper level potential.

Show jumping and cross country is very easy with him, he jumps in a snaffle. Smetana is a very careful and cautious jumper, he easily makes time and has the scope to go big. He likes a forward ride when jumping which is the only reason that I feel he is not suited for a beginner, but would be good for an amateur or young rider with trainer, or a professional looking for a horse to go up the levels with. He can take a miss when jumping and won’t hold it against you.

Smetana has impeccable ground manners. He is good shipping, ground ties, cross ties, stands for the farrier, and body clips. He is not dependent on other horses, trailers alone or with others, I’ve taken him out trail riding alone and he is perfect.
