Big in the City, a 2018 model 16.1 TB, is suitable for an amateur or professional to finish producing. One of his best qualities is his quiet but intelligent demeanor. Loads easily and walks on the buckle in new and exciting environments.
Known in the barn as “Louie”. He has excellent ground manners. Stands quietly tied for farrier and generally easy to work around.
Louie was let down from the racetrack in Oct. 2021 after a 12 start career. He began his new education in January and has since been to local mini trials and two recognized horse trials - finishing consistently in the top 6.
He is extremely brave on XC. Lovely over ditches, banks, water, and colorful fences. While this horse is currently working at the beginner novice level, he has scope for much higher.
Besides being a real gem in the ring and on XC, Louie is fantastic on the trails. Not spooky and great with dogs. This horse will be a lovely all round horse to enjoy yourself on!
