New York City Slicker, owned by Jody Swimmer, is her young 5 yr old American Saddlebred who she has won countless awards on already! Jody purchased him as a 2 yr old and has basically done all the work herself. They earned the Young Horse Material Gold Medal for the 3 yr old Division at the American Warmblood Society, for 2008, with an outstanding, 72.7%!!! He also was awarded USDF’s All Breeds 4 yr old Champion, with an overall score of 67.1% for 2009! They also received the Gold Medal for the overall division, as he scored in the 70%’s! “George” is dual registered with The American Saddlebred registry and American Warmblood Society. He is a gorgeous 15.2 hand chestnut with chrome who has a huge desire to please. He is definitely one of the cutest geldings in the barn. He always has a smile on his face! He showed First level this past summer, winning the class amongst warmbloods, with a 68%. He has natural suspension in his trot and for his age, has an extremely well balanced canter. Our goal is that George will follow in the famous Harry Callahan’s and now Forty Something’s footsteps, by reaching the FEI and maybe even Grand Prix!
