Costa is the most athletic, fastest horse that we own. However, he and my daughter do not click at all, and she will not ride him, so it's time to sell him. She is starting college in the fall also, so she needs to focus on one or two instead of four! My daughter broke him as a two year old, and did all of his training. He has unbelievable bloodlines. Costa has been hauled to Hattiesburg, MS many times, has been ran at All American Youth a few times, and runs NBHA in MS and AL. He is the first one to meet you in the pasture. He isn't afraid of anything and has actually played with a plastic Wal-Mart bag, slinging it around in the pasture, freaking out all of the other horses. Costa is very smart!! He opens barn gates (only lets the mares out), and opens chicken pens. He will unload the back of your truck if you drive into the pasture. He doesn't have the best manners in the world, and is very impatient, and has a spoiled child temper! He will paw if he gets mad, and this includes pawing at you when you try to give his vaccinations and draw coggins. He stands perfectly for the farrier and goes barefoot. As far as his barrel racing, he has had numerous 1D placings. He doesn't have alley or gate issues, but does get hot and antsy when he runs. Will need an experienced rider. He does crib, but only when he is bored in the stall. We don't even keep a cribbing collar on him, because he has full access to the boards in the barn to crib on, and he never goes in there except at feeding time.
