Stealing hearts from coast to coast!

Franchitti, is a one of a kind Thoroughbred you will never forget meeting (the touch your heart kind). Frankie, as he is known around the barn, will lure you in with his workmanlike attitude, big floating trot, elegant bascule over fences and his gentle way with all living things. He loves to have his people around and a job where he learns new things. Currently, he is working consistently over 2’9” courses while dabbling with 3’ fences. His flying changes coupled with his point and shoot approach to fences makes him a great Young Rider or Ammy friendly partner. He moves with the cadence and rhythm for the Hunter ring, along with the elasticity and athleticism for Dressage and Eventing. Frankie will put his best into anything you ask him to do. It’s impressive how hard he tries. While his training has been focused on Dressage and Show Hunters, he has experience on cross country through Novice. Whatever ring you want to compete in, he is your guy. Hacks out alone or in company on the buckle. Loads and travels well. Frankie has attended several shows with us entering the schooling classes. He will begin competing this month in preparation for the Thoroughbred Makeover. So come out and meet our unicorn. It will not take long to fall for his huge personality, sweet demeanor and handsome good looks.
