About Tua

Tuaandtwentysix, a 16h, 2016 gelding by Giant’s Causeway out of Sea of Showers by Seattle Slew, always puts a smile on our faces. Named for the Alabama football star who hails from Hawaii, “Tua” brings the island sunshine into our barn every day. Though he came to the MMSC right off the track - he last raced on June 27th - he settled right in and hasn’t looked back! Childlike and curious, this sweet gelding thrives on attention and cuddles, though with his willing attitude, he's equally happy to go to work under saddle, to play on our obstacle course, or to hang out in the barn and receive said cuddles. With his dished face and refined ears that harken back to his Arabian ancestors, his flashy chrome markings, his elegant frame, and a sparkle in his eye, Tua is sure to be a stand-out in any crowd, and his already balletic movement promises suspension, balance, and power that can be molded for any discipline. If you’re looking for a friend who can bring a bit of the island brightness, positivity, and love to your life, then look no further - Tua is the one for you!

Pretty good for a 3-year-old's third ride off the track, don't you think? Tua is such a pleasure to work with, as he's equally happy under saddle learning what the leg, seat, and bit are all about and hanging out in the barn enjoying cuddles and pampering.
