Braxton has the right combination of assets to have a a real shot at making a splash in the show pen. His strong points are a really slow lope and an extremely easy-going nature. Nearly all our Zip to the Topnotch sons and daughters are good-minded, but this gelding might get the unflappable award.

21 months (12/08) First ride ever

On December 31, 2008, at 21 months, Braxton had his first ride. We got it all on video. As expected, he was absolutely calm. Nobody even worried when the cat ran out in front of him. He tried his hardest to do what was asked, and transferred his  groundwork training to a rider's cues without a hitch. Rider Clara Vaughn had him turning, trotting, stopping and backing on that first ride, without anything being an issue.  He seemed fine with it all and was focused on trying to feel safe and balanced with the weight on his back.

 Braxton was born cream-colored, but shed off his baby hair to reveal a rich brassy gold coat underneath. Each winter, the bright color is hidden under a fuzzy tan coat with dark points, but every spring shedding has revealed a brilliant sheen that lives up to his brassy name.
