Silver Gatsby is a total sweetheart who loves any and all attention. He will stand forever to let you love on him. He was bred in Australia before racing in Hong Kong. He came to New Vocations in October and was allowed time to become accustomed to our climate before starting work under saddle.He is always one of the first at the gate waiting to come in, he is the lieutenant to the herd leader. He is a barn favorite with everyone. Silver does not have any stall vices.
Under saddle, he has a”been there, done that” way of going. He is confident but still loves reward and encouragement from his rider. He prefers a quiet rider, quiet hands and leg. He has 3 consistent gaits with a large, animated trot and smooth canter. He is totally focused on work and really enjoyed his first attempt at crossrails. Silver has been chiropracted once so far but will need follow up care as he was bit fixated. With the adjustment his stride gets much more free and open. He had a bowed tendon previously in his career but that was fully rehabbed and returned to full work. He is best suited for lower level jumping with an intermediate rider.
