Patrick is the ideal youth/amateur mount or confidence builder. Also appropriate husband horse. Very quiet temperament, extremely obedient, excellent manners and work ethic. 6 yrs old this St. Patricks day, registered APHA (incentive and gelding plus), 16 hands, solid gelding at 1050 lbs. Flashy black tobiano with 4 socks, blaze and one blue eye. Wonderfully, quiet temperament - loves to go out in the open field or on trails. Goes quietly with or without other horses. Has had 1 year of professional western pleasure training, a year and a half of dressage training, and has been started over fences. Reaches for contact with the bit, beautiful, round form over jumps, absolutely no rush, honest and has never refused. Could show 1st level dressage tomorrow and place. Solid WTC, lateral movements, lengthenings, easy to collect, supple/soft bend, shoulder in, haunches in, turn on forehand/haunches, ect. This horse has had excellent training without being pushed too fast. Extremely versatile gelding, has several multiple world champions half brothers and sisters. Half brother currently on the market for 15k.
You can do just about anything with Patrick. Loads and trailers very quietly, could clip without a halter, ties in any situation, no issues with feeding, meets you at the gate, crosses bridges, water, ditches, whatever. Lunges beautifully by voice command. Never needs to be lunged before riding. You can go without riding for weeks and he is still the same horse. Absolutely no buck, rear or bad habits. Trailers off the farm very quietly, last trailered to a dressage clinic on 2/3/13. People can't believe Patrick is only 5. Vets, farriers and barn owners love him. Barn favorite, thrives off of people and would crawl in your pocket if he could. Up to date on vx, coggins, and power float. Well cared for. Patrick is a member of our family - what he needs, he gets. Easy keeper, goes barefoot. Sound, no previous injuries or illnesses.
Wonderful home is a must. Athletic, all around horse, would be successful in dressage, HUS, western pleasure, competitive trail, and in open and APHA shows. Price negotiable to perfect person.
