Major Dude is a 9 yr old 16h Thoroughbred who really is the whole package! Dude retired from racing, sound, when he was 5 yrs old. At that time he was reschooled in eventing for about 6 weeks before heading home to his owner, Suzi Shoemaker’s farm, where he picked up odd jobs like ponying yearlings and such. After 3 years of not really finding his niche, Dude was put into the OTS training program. To say the least, Dude has now found his niche! He is currently competing confidently at the novice level. He boasts an impressive best dressage score of 26.9 and only one jumping penalty in his career. He is brave, bold, honest and especially eager to please! Dude is undoubtably someone’s heart horse, waiting to find his perfect match! He has a lovable personality and is enjoyable to work with! Dude would love to do whatever is asked of him. His training is well versed and he could go in any direction. He would love to continue competing to his highest potential but would be equally as happy to be a trail horse who is loved on daily. He has not yet been out with hounds but could potentially be a great hunt horse, as well! Dude has no limitations is suitable for a confident amateur.
