Offered for your Consideration

Showstone, 3 year old dark bay TB Gelding currently measuring 16.0-1/2 h, expecting to mature 16.1+. By Horse of The Year Mineshaft, out of the Irish bred daughter of Galileo, Bola de Cristal.

You couldn't customize a better sport horse prospect if you tried....with bloodlines such as Galileo, Mr. Prospecter, AP Indy, Nureyev...all which guarantee a successful transition to a 2nd career.

`Kane` is sweet, quiet and as easy as you could want from a 3 year old. He is extremely brave and level headed, very comfortable to ride, and the same horse every ride.

Truly a rare find, Kane would excel in the hunter ring no question. He has fantastic flat kneed and correct movement with a good step that isn't overwhelming. He is light in the bridle and establishing a solid connection. Since he is only 3 years old, we have chosen to go slow and set a strong foundation for the future over fences, but he shows good willingness over ground poles and small cavallettis. Kane only raced 1 time, and his connections decided racing wasn't his forte.

Kane would make an excellent project for an intermediate to advanced rider under the training of an experienced professional, only because of his age. Although I feel he is destined for the hunter ring, his bravery and rideability would lend well to any discipline. Clean front ankle xrays are available. A good home that will appreciate how special he is will be of utmost importance.
