2017 OHJA & HJEO Year End Reserve Champion! "Leo's Peppy TuffStuff" 2004 Gelding, very round 16'1 hh, Honest "Saint" Beginner Hunter
TuffStuff (AKA Tuffy)
Tuffy is a true saint that never cares what he jumps or is effected in a new environment including shows. He can not be ridden for a couple weeks and still come out "steady Eddie". Doesn't need any prep or training rides at shows, no ear puffs--very simple. Has never needed lunging. Moves up to get the step down the lines at shows, has lead changes, and has a cute, big, round jump. Does well at shows, especially the 2'6" & under divisions. Recently won Champion in the 2'3 Beginners in local hunter/jumper schooling show and earned his 2017 lease rider Year End Reserve Champion in 2'3 Beginner Equitation Division for both HJEO & OHJA. Available for sale &/or full lease for the 2018 show season! $10,000 sale, or $3,500 lease. Contact SaddleBack Equestrian for more info!
