Bandman aka “Bandsmen” is a 2008, 15.3 hand chestnut Thoroughbred gelding. He is super quiet and laid back. He has bigger, heavier bone and a big barrel that will take up some leg on a taller rider. He is lightly raced with just 16 starts and winnings of just $16,570. He retired sound from his last race at Churchill Downs in September with clean legs. This horse is offered for sale by his breeder who was also his trainer. He takes the time to start a young horse correctly and takes pride in retiring his horses sound enough for second careers. This is a really nice horse. Look past the mud. It was raining cats and dogs in Kentucky that day and we were lucky to get any photos. He trailers, ties and really wants to please. He goes out with other horses and he is the low man in the pasture. He has no vices. He has been relaxing at his breeder’s farm in Kentucky while he awaits his next assignment as a show horse. You can be in the show ring next week with him – he even rides Western!
UPDATE July 2014: – Bandman has been purchased by Julie Webster-Smith of Ellenwood (Atlanta), GA! Congratulations Julie! We are happy to have another wonderful Kentucky Thoroughbred in the Atlanta area so we can visit him and watch his progress. Julie has a terrific background of training riders at the college level. Bandman is in good hands with Julie.
Julie and Steven meet Bandman and take their first ride on him. He is a keeper! Click on the box to the far right on the slideshow to see the photos at full screen.
