About Andre

If you’re looking for a big doll of a horse, then Leading Cause, nicknamed “Andre the Giant”, is your man! A 17.1h, 2014 gelding by Creative Cause out of Silver Time by Indian Charlie, Andre is a veteran of 7 starts with career earnings of $63,230. This gentle giant is a packer in the making. He’s kind. He’s patient. He listens. He tries. He learns. He’s sound, although newly off the track he’s still quite stiff, and because of an old sesamoid injury, he’s best suited for lower level endeavors. This horse loves engaging with people and entertains us with his funny expressions and antics. We’ve worked him in the arena, we’ve jumped him, we’ve ridden him all over the Kentucky Horse Park, and we’ve been so impressed by how he takes it all in stride with a level head. Andre is the perfect first horse, husband horse, or swan song horse looking for his forever home.

When you're 17.1 hands at 4 years old, it can be challenging to coordinate your big body and long legs! But in just his 2nd ride off the track, Leading Cause is already figuring it out. Stay tuned for more of "Andre" here: www.secretariatcenter.org/horses/leading-cause.
