16.2 hh Dark Bay Thoroughbred Gelding
EXPERIENCE & TRAINING - Furio began training
in March '06 and shows potential for hunters, equitation, or dressage.
He has a beautiful, relaxed frame and a quiet and confident way
of going. He is confident over 2'9". He
is accustomed to turn out with other horses and is always
easy to catch in the field. He is polite around the barn and stands
quietly for bathing, will cross tie for mane pulling, braiding,
clipping, and farrier work. He is comfortable in the barn and in
the arena with and without companions. He has
a polite and professional way about him. Furio has shown off and on since I
adopted him in 2006 so that he has ample experience but is not the soured or bored in the least. In September 2014 he became the lead-line mount for my two-year-old son (he rides Furio 2-4 days per week).

CONFORMATION & MOVEMENT - Furio is big bodied
with a robust frame, level top-line, broad, muscular chest, and
sloping shoulder. He has a very elegant look (lots of chrome!),
ample talent, courage, and work ethic that make a great
show horse. His
facial expressions are always kind, thoughtful, and curious. He
has solid, blemish-free legs. He has a beautiful trot, two easy leads, and very round form over-fences.
HISTORY - Furio or Jockey Club: Smart Glory by Canaveral ($258,060) out of Emerging Glory (by Smarten ($716,426)), was adopted from the Last Chance
Corral in March 2006. He was never raced and does not have a tattoo.
POTENTIAL - He would be an easy transition from
a rider accustomed to riding lesson horses; he is very forgiving. He is a ready-made hunter or equitation
mount. He would be an excellent mount for an adult to enjoy in
any aspect of showing or pleasure riding. He is a fantastic mount for a less experienced rider to progress on.
Furio would best perform under the guidance of a Walk,
Trot, Canter Level Rider or greater.
