Hank is a BIG, beautiful, talented gelding that is bred to be a big-time performer.  He has been brought along slowly under saddle and is ready for finishing.  He has a natural lead change and a huge stride.  He has been started over fences and has been taken to some beginner classes on the Hunter/Jumper circuit. he has great form over the jumps and an easy lead change. He is ready for an advanced rider to take him on to higher jumps, or take him to the Appaloosa shows and do the flat, in hand and fence classes!

Hank's bloodlines are impeccable.  His mother is race-bred and has produced several babies that had race careers, but where she has really excelled is as a producer of HUS babies.  She has produced 11 foals -- 4 were race money earners, and several others have gone on to win big in the show ring.  Her show babies have earned 4 Bronze Medallion, and numerous ROMS and Superiors un multiple events. Most notably is Huntsman, with several World and National Championships.

Hank's sire is an AQHA Leading Sire, in 2003 he was the 5th Leading Longe Line Sire and the only Hunt Seat Sire in the Top Ten.  His oldest youngsters were born in 2000, but already he has a number of his get competing and winning in Huntseat and western events, over fences and in Dressage.  Indian Artifacts is enrolled in numerous prestigious futurity programs, thus making Hank eligible for these competitions if paid in.

This gelding will be a fabulous fence and rail horse in Non-Pro classes.  He has tons of try -- he will always be working to do what you want him to do.
