“Saul” “The Moose”
2001 16.2 bay Thoroughbred gelding
This sweet natured gelding was foaled in Iowa and raced lightly as “Running for Grace” as a 3 and 4 year old.
He found his way to Stone Ridge in November 2008 when local trainer Barbara Joyce met him and felt that he and Cynthia might be a good match. Saul completed two Novice Horse Trials in early 2009. He endured a trailer accident which caused a fractured ischial tuberosity (point of the pelvis). After a full year of rest and rehabilitation, he returned to competition in 2010.
Saul was a “Yes Ma’am” horse who wanted to please and was confident and brave to the fences. He not only had “the look”, he also had the movement, sensibility and athleticism to back it up. Saul had the heart for upper level eventing, unfortunately his prior injury required him to stay at a less demanding level. He was sold to rider with goals more consistent with his limitations in 2011.
Saul was successful in hunters, jumpers, dressage and eventing.
