Color: Chestnut
Markings: Blaze, 2 hind socks
Style of Riding Used for: Eventing, Dressage, Jumpers, Polocrosse

Why we should accept your horse (please use details): Sprite is the latest in my string of horses I ride in non-traditional disciplines for their breed. Sprite is a full-blooded ASB, out of 5-gaited lines, but he'll never go saddleseat with me :) Sprite was a rescue from a dog-food auction when he was 2 -- his breeder died in an accident and the lawyer who was executor of the estate sent all the horses to auction. He was rescued by my vet, a wonderful lady with a soft-spot for saddlebreds in trouble. She put some great basics into him, both on the flat and O/F, and now I'm lucky enough to get the chance to bring him along. Sprite has a wonderful attitude and is incredibly brave and willing to try whatever I ask. He's a cross-country machine -- though his saddlebred-tendency to be looky may have him being a little too aware of his surroundings, he's going to go over anything you point him at -- water, ditches, you name it! I'm so lucky to have the opportunity to ride this great little horse -- and hopefully he'll be the horse that I ride to at least Prelim (and maybe beyond!).

I know it's head-on, but I don't have a good conformation shot. However, I've got some extra under-saddle shots to make up for it :)
