Honest and correct 12 yo training level OTTB gelding

Fire For Effect (JC Aristarchus), Arty, is a sound and dependable 2009 15.3 hand OTTB gelding. Recently finishing 9th in the training division at AECs, Arty is the kindest and most hardworking horse I’ve ever had the pleasure of riding. I purchased Arty directly off the track in 2017 and he has remained my personal horse. He has accumulated an expansive and clean record through training level including the Retired Racehorse Project and American Eventing Championships. Arty consistently scores in the low 30s and has never had a jump penalty on cross country.

Arty would be best suited for an eager teenager or adult amateur looking for a dependable, but forward thinking mount. Arty is quiet enough for a beginner at home, but is forward and game at shows. He is a solid citizen; no vices, extremely well mannered, stands for the farrier, clipping, bathing, mane pulling, etc. He is kind in the pasture, quiet in the stall, and an overall easy keeper. Loads easily and hauls quietly. He truly checks all of the boxes.

Arty is proficient at second level movements and schooling prelim fences. He is very honest on course and deserves a rider that won’t take advantage of his eagerness to please. While Arty could take the right rider up to prelim, I believe he would be best suited running training and below.

With 23 career starts on the track, Arty has proven to be a sound athlete. He has correct conformation, plenty of bone, solid feet, and requires little maintenance.

I am willing to wait for the perfect, loving home for Arty. With a young daughter and a full time career, I simply do not have the time to give Arty the riding opportunities he loves and deserves. Serious, adult inquiries only. While I am happy to share current radiographs and exams, any further PPE will be at buyers expense. $30k. Located in Ball Ground, Ga.
