Irreplaceable, incredible bloodlines, bred for his superb loin coupling, high work drive, great legs and trainability/intelligence. Both sire and dam sire are rated Preferant and Sport, and are deceased, increasing the desirability of what is known as a golden niche when crossed. You would have to look very hard to find a comparable horse.
He loves to play with other horses, work hard and be DOING something. He is a clown, playing with feed buckets and trying to come up with tricks.
This talented young gelding has the most incredible, balanced, uphill dressage type canter. It's the kind that makes you grin uncontrollably.
He is green, very broke and not spooky, good brakes, but not refined/show ready yet. Has been trail ridden by my daughter since she was 9 and he was a just-started 4 year old. He's a good trail horse and has traveled a lot for in-hand work. No vices, loads, clips, bathes, ties, no bad habits and does everything.
Current skill set under saddle includes: great trail horse but prefers to follow someone. Not spooky, good brakes, just joyful to be going somewhere.
Learning to stretch into contact, not consistent in stretch, but tries really hard. Soft in the bridle, very flexible.
Rating tempo in walk/trot, learning to canter depart in the arena. Gymnastisizing left side, he's still right handed and strongly prefers that lead. Only ridden twice a week on average.
Can have heavy machinery driven on his tail without a flicker, will rubber neck over new horses - he's used to a working farm but private facility.
Improving consistency week by week.
This colt as custom-bred for me by an amazing woman, he is the 3rd full sibling and she retains the first 2. His brother is 16 hands and his sister is 15.3 - they are really slow growers, he's still just about 15.1hh and not filled in yet. But his siblings did the same thing. He is the largest of the foals.
Sadly, my disability and his need for activity means for his own well-being. I have grieved it a lot, but part of being a good horsewoman is making hard choices for the horses well-being.
Please, not for lease, would not make a good western horse, I'm willing to work with a buyer on price and payments, but if you can't afford to buy him at all or only half his price, you aren't going to be able to afford it if he gets hurt, either, so please don't ask. This horse is an amazing talent, already priced low since I can't keep him worked as much as he likes, I'm flexible and reasonable, but I'm not crazy, nor do I want to deal with the crazies who want a lot of hair on a horse with no concern for its heart or mind and individuality and want it free or very cheap.
