Pirate is a super neat 5 yr old Tb gelding standing right at 16 hands. JC Speightstownpirate by the stunning sire Speightstown. He was a whip horse for Hard Away Hounds in AL before he came to me and is now hunting first and second flight with Sedgefield Hunt 1-2x per week. He is the epitome of everything you want in a TB hunt horse. Pirate lived on site at the kennel in AL and is extremely keen and respectful of the hounds. Stellar brain and tons of heart. Loves to go on the big fast runs but has great brakes and a soft mouth and easily comes back in a snaffle. While still considered a youngster, Pirate remains smart and reliable to the fences and even led first flight several weeks ago. When not hunting, he will happily do arena work and hacks out on the trail on the buckle. Loads well, stands tied, good for farrier, no vices or injuries. As a professional I was looking for a bold, fun, but safe first flight horse for the 2020/2021 season and Pirate has not disappointed. I had not planned to offer him until late March but with the cancellation of our performance trials I have decided to place him on the market now. Would also make a stellar dressage/event horse when not hunting. Gets along well with pasture mates, lives in or out. Priced 12,500 PPEs welcome, no trials. Eden NC
