Major is a quiet, proven show horse. He is great at patterns, and is a showmanship pro. He is verstile, but does best in WP and showmanship. He is a 10+ jogger, and his lope is nice too. He does leadline too. He is a great all around horse, and has a very sweet dispostion. My daughter is aging out of 4-H, and we don't go to enough shows, and this guy needs to be in the show pen. He has been part of our family for about 5 years, we love him, and want him to go to a good show home. He gets to be "a horse" in the winter, so he is not shed out, but he does get ridden and stays tuned up. His mane and tail are dyed black. The people who had hime before me did it, and he stands out more in the show ring. We only dye it about 3 times during the show season.
