Price: $3,000 Name: Classen Comet aka Class Registered: Jockey Club Age: 7 Height: 15.1hh Breed: Thoroughbred
About: Class is not a must sell. He is currently in barrel training and doing very well. We wanted to go ahead and offer him for sale in case we found "his person". He is currently being ridden western and started on the barrel pattern. He has alot of speed and shows alot of promise to be at the very lease a 2D prospect. He could also switch it up and have a career as a jumper, one of our boarders is a jumper and has been working with him on ground poles and very low level jumps. He shows promise in this area as well. He keeps his knees square and does not hesitate or anticipate the jump it is very natural and smooth. He is a very hyper horse and we have found that keeping him on Mare Magic daily really helps keep him level headed so he can focus on his work. He has been ridden in english & western saddle as well as bareback in a halter. We would suggest him for an experienced rider due to his speed and strength.
He does have a full set of shoes, I think depending on the environment in which he is living in he may be able to go barefoot. We transitioned him to barefoot for awhile but after some time since we have alot of hard ground and gravel, we had to put shoes back on him. No maintenance required on him! He is also UTD on coggins and shots.
He is currently being ridden 6 days a week and hauled around to barrel races to see the sights and do exhibitions. He is currently only trotting the pattern out in public and we have just started introducing a lope at home. Since he is off the track it is our experience with these types of horses to take it slow and really drill their rate spot. He leads, loads, lunges and stands tied. He can be a little spooky but nothing dangerous. This is typically in new environments and he gets over it fairly quickly. No kick, buck, bite or rear.
Please email me for more information or to set up an appointment. Hauling is available through First Class Equine Services. PPE welcome at Buyer's expense.
