There’s no doubt about it, this unraced 16h filly is “Stunning!” You’ll recognize many of the names in this big-bodied and well-conformed girl’s pedigree. She’s by Trappe Shot and features Thoroughbred royalty such Tapit, Pulpit, A.P. Indy, Unbridled, Fappiano, Seattle Slew, Mr. Prospector, Thunder Gulch, Gulch and Northern Dancer.
She has a quiet nature and is easy to work with both on the ground and under saddle. Stunning is currently turned out with a small group of like-minded, easy-going mares. She’s not aggressive with other horses but isn’t a push over either—she takes care of herself out there.
This attractive girl is best suited for a career as a pleasure horse, and her inquisitive nature make her an ideal trail horse—she’s not afraid of new things and experiences. She was an excellent trail partner for her previous adopter, an older woman who rode her out and about by herself (Stunning returned to our program due to unforeseen circumstances and through absolutely no fault of her own). And, with her naturally muscular build and quiet nature, Stunning looks gorgeous in Western tack!
Earlier this year, we took this girl to the 2019 Run for the Horses 5K in Saratoga State Park. She walked around and met and greeted over 250 race participants, walked up and down curbs, walked away from and back to her equine friends, and was even more relaxed at the event than she is at home! She was a true representation of the Thoroughbred breed taking everything in stride. This girl was brave and loved all the attention she received. She never batted an eye at her busy surroundings or the load cheering. Her trainer’s thoughts on the day? “I could not be more impressed with her!”
