Sale Information

Command the Stars, "Leo," is a 15.2 hh gelding by Midas Touch. Leo has been retired from the race world since January 2018, completing only two races when it was decided that he was just too slow! Post-racing, he had a bit of down time and has since been immersed into the basics of the hunter / jumper as well as the eventing worlds and has proven to be a quick learner. Leo has a solid flatwork foundation, changes, and has begun lateral work. Currently, Leo schools 2'-2'6 courses with changes at home. Super brave, he jumped everything he was pointed at during his first cross country schooling. Great trot and natural canter with excellent conformation...he could go in any direction but would excel in the hunters, jumpers, or eventing. This guy has an excellent personality with a great brain; he stands for vet/ farrier, loads easily and has perfect ground manners. Available to be tried at the RRP 2018. Contact Emma for additional photos/ videos.
