UPDATE: Congratulations to Jane Chance of Locust Grove, GA!!! Watch to see her train Dakota Spirit for his new career as an eventor.
“Dakota” is an unraced 2006, 16.2 hand bay gelding. He does not look like he is only three! He will be a very big and solid horse able to stand up to the toughest career. He is living at his breeder’s farm because of the sudden passing of his trainer. He was almost ready to race last fall when he lost his trainer. He is a full brother to our Prospect Horse For Sale – “Maverick”. He is taller and stockier than Maverick. He is a quick learner and you only have to show him something once and he figures it out. Everyone oohed and ahhh’d over him at the track. He has a very good stride. He never did anything stupid at the track and enjoyed training. This is the kind of horse that should have a competition career. He is young, sound and sane. He just needs someone to let him have a career since his racing career never got started.
His breeder Deb says: “It is a shame that I have to sell him because Lee thought he had so much promise. I don’t want him to be a race horse. I have a small fortune invested in him – stud feed, breaking, etc. and he has never made any money because he has never started. He is a very smart horse and is a quick learner. He would make someone a wonderful dressage horse, eventer or jumper. He was no problem all winter for me to take care of. He has a lot of sense. He likes to rough house with “Maverick” until Maverick gets tired of it and then Maverick puts him in his place. They are fun to watch. Just like River and Maverick when they were together.
