Bay Thoroughbred gelding for sale.

Touchthesun aka "Fred"

"Touchthesun is a eight- year old 16.1+ hand Thoroughbred gelding. He had a 15% tear in a tendon as a three year old, and he was brought home to heal. He never was lame on the tendon, but his breeders wanted to give him time off. He never did return to the track because they got busy with newer babies. His breeder always thought she'd send him to an English pleasure person to train, but it just never happened." 

Touchsthesun is a sweet, kind, well mannered boy, with a tremendous amount of class. He is a big floaty mover. He is current on all shots, worming and his feet have been well cared for. He is sound for any career.

UPDATE - June 1, 2006

Fred has been doing some work over ground poles and has proven to be very aware of where his feet are. He floats effortlessly through the poles with ease and rhythm.  Once Fred was comfortable over the ground poles, we tried a few cross rails.  He was not quite sure why I was pointing him to the rails and will a little encouragement, he stepped over them.  It didn’t take him long to figure out that I wanted him to jump the cross rails after which he complied.  He did not rush the rails nor did he go rushing off after landing, simply trotting off instead.  He was rather proud of himself and did a wee bit of strutting.  

The next phase will be to put him through some grid work and of course, continued work with ground poles to improve on him movement and rhythm. 

Current Training - June 1, 2006

  • He has had lots of ground training and walks respectfully on a lead.
  • He stands for the farrier
  • He stands quietly for grooming, including clipping
  • He has done despooking training with black plastic bags, plastic tarps and flying hats! Nothing scares him.
  • He goes quietly under saddle at the walk, trot and canter.
  • He lunges well using different aids such as side reins and surcingle.  He also is very obedient to voice commands when lunging.
  • He stands quietly to be mounted and dismounted.
  • He has excellent ground manners (loves to be groomed and will not move a hair!).
  • He stands perfectly still without fussing to have his mane pulled (yes, we finally pulled his beautiful mane to transform him into a sport horse).
  • He has been ridden on the trails and has crossed water with no problem.
  • He has been started over ground poles and small cross rails.
  • He is ridden in a Sprenger WH Ultra Loose Ring snaffle bit.

Touchthesun aka Fred is a gorgeous mover.
