Classic Copper aka “Lucas” is a lovely 9 yr. old 17.3 hd. TB gelding. He has comfortable gaits and the good kind of TB brain; sensible and forward thinking canter, ground covering trot and walk. He is showing Training and First level dressage. At his first NCDCTA dressage show he scored a 9 on his gaits in Training test 3 for a 69.31% and a 66.85% on 1st 1. (Video link below), then just recently went to his first USEF recognized show and finished up by scoring a 66.718% in 1st test 2. (New video also below). These were his first shows of any kind, so we were very happy with his level of ride ability as he got the hang of the atmosphere! Also enjoys small jumps and works over ground rails well, though we have been focused on a dressage career for him. Knows all voice commands and lunges well. Has even taught a “seat” lesson on the lunge. Hacks out alone on forested local trail and works just as well in the jumping field or arena as he does in the dressage arena. Not a spooky and never raced. Currently turned out with another gelding most of the time, but can be on his own as well. Has a set of radiographs from his purchase in VA. not quite a year ago that are available for review and were unremarkable at the time. Would be a super horse for an ambitious tall junior rider or AA. For sale only because owner had her first baby and has not had enough time to do him justice!
