2007 BWP Gelding | 17.1hh Brown
Coconut Grove XX x Jus de Pomme x Ahorn
Handy is a powerful jumper with a ton of scope. He spent a couple years in California with World Cup rider, Harley Brown, and jumped through the 1.40m. He competes in the A/O jumpers with Stefan Parker and recently debuted in the big eq/medals with Abby Grabowski. Great record as a Child/Adult Jumper as well. Easy, scopey jump, smooth canter and super adjustable.
Handyman B was purchased as a 5 year old from breeder Allyn McCracken. His dam, Montana has produced several upper level jumpers and is by the double gold medalist of the 1996 Olympics, Jus de Pomme. His sire, Coconut Grove, competed in the 1.60m in World Cup competitions as well as many other international Grand Prix.
Handy jumps open water, is free of vices, clips, self-loads and has a friendly personality, which makes him a joy to have in the barn.
Handy spent two years at Kent School in Connecticut teaching young jumper riders. In 2020 he underwent colic surgery in 2020 and recovered very well but has been retired from competition.
