About Clutch

A winner of $152,793 in 20 starts, Clutch Cargo is pure class. A 16.1h, 2014 gelding by Tapit out of Carmandia by Wild Rush, Clutch comes to the MMSC from Chestertown Farm in New York, and it’s clear that he’s been well-handled and well-cared for his whole life. Under saddle he is straightforward, and on the ground he is kind and engaging. But more than that, he is elegance itself. He flows like pure silk beneath his rider, soft in his mouth and rhythmic in his movement. His bold chrome markings complement his refined features, and even his coat is smooth as silk. If Clutch were a human, he’s the type to find a career as a journalist, keenly interested in people and the world around him, or as a musician, composing beautiful melodies and counterpoints that give his listeners all the feels. With such a thoughtful and gracious nature, he will do well with an equally tender and amiable person, and he should shine in the show hunter ring. Christened as our newest Legacy Horse, Clutch is truly a one-of-a-kind heart horse in the making - all he needs is his perfect match to complete his picture of elegance!

Clutch Cargo has settled in well to the MMSC and is proving to be an apt student! Here, our trainer Kara is long-lining Clutch, working on steering and transitions, while also teaching him softness with the bit.
