Re: [RC] [RC] [RC] Non-pacing TWH Bloodlines?? - Soli Sorokin

My stallion - who I'd compete on more if I had time (we can only hit
the Big South Fork ride if my work schedule permits it - but we're out
there about twice a week doing about 20-30 miles) - does not pace at
all. He's more of a square moving horse that does the running walk,
foxtrot, extended full trot, and canter. We don't trot often, but
about every 15 miles or so we do about ten minutes of trotting - it
seems to give him a break, and I actually like posting every now and
then.

His bloodlines are fairly obscure for the most part. His sire is
Denney's Golden Star, dam is French Silk. On his sire's side,  Golden
Nautilus x Eu-Bet's Lady Star, Dam's side is a bit more well-known,
with Go Boy's Gold Insignia x a Pusher bred mare a couple generations
back. He's a smaller horse, but with solid, big hooves and legs.   He
was bred by a family in KY that produced a good sized handful of
colorful, nicely gaited horses that were exactly the opposite of what
the show ring called for. From what I hear, the children and in-laws
continued with horses after the original "Denney" died, but without a
focus or program.

Okay - I'm riding for a third season of occassional  limited disrtance on a
TWH gelding.  My own physicel limits may keep us from moving up.  We'll see.

If you go back far enough, he has Midnight Sun, Merry Go Boy, Merry Boy and
Curlee's Spotted Allen on his pedigree.

I suspect he was bred for the showring, but he's a tough little 14.3 h
machine, probably doesn't weigh 900 lbs.

He has NO pace in him, but (BLASPHEMY!) I do allow him to trot when he gets
tired of racking.

We train with a group who all ride Arabs.  His recoveries to pulse criteria
are usually a little slower than the Arabs, but he's come in 10th twice,
after several rides dedicated to schooling.
