Weekly Sales Circuit: Competitive Geldings for the Derbies

Whether you’re currently in the market for a new horse, casually thinking about your next partner, or creating a wish list of your dream horses, read on for some horses for sale that we love.  These horses are from Michigan, New York and Florida.

We added these lovely geldings to our wish list because not only are they actively showing in the 3’6″ and already competitive in the ribbons, but they also excel in hunter derbies on top of regular performance hunters.  It gives you an opportunity to give it your all in multiple types of competition — and being competitive never hurts!

2011 16.3h Dutch Warmblood gelding. “Marcus” is a great Junior/Amateur Owner Hunter with the ability to be competitive in the International Derbies. He easily can show in the 3′ 9″ Hunters in 2020. “Marcus” has a 10 jump, great movement and is very attractive. No bad habits, only GOOD ones! Easy to work with, minimal prep at the shows. He took his current owner into the 3′ 3″ Junior Hunters last year and introduced her into the 3′ 6″ Junior Hunters this year. Sadly she is at college this year; hence, his sale. “Marcus” still has lots of potential. He would be an asset in any barn.
