I had the incorrect photos attached to this horse previously. The correct photos are now installed.

Rides, Drives (single, pair), packs, has been used on farm machinery. Basic training done by an Amish trainer in Monte Vista, Colorado. He was worked and paddocked with other horses.

Maestro is absolutely cute and very sweet. He was gelded at 3 and shows no real interest in my mares, but I pasture him separately with his father just to be sure (mostly because I don't trust my mares than either of the geldings). He has a nice over-tracking walk, a nice trot and a good rolling canter. I worked with him to develop a nice slow trot on a light rein when he showed the tendency to have an accelerating trot.

He is trained to ride and has been on trail rides while at the trainer’s, but hasn’t been ridden in several years so should be considered green. He has been driven as part of a pair and in larger groupings on farm machinery. He has been to the mountains packing hunters and equipment in and game out. He is traffic safe. He has no problems with dogs and other critters met along the way.

Maestro has decided that he does not want to drive anymore so should only be considered as a riding horse. He will go through water willingly, has crossed a covered bridge and is traffic safe. He has been driven in indoor and outdoor arenas. He is fine around other horses. He would need to be sent to a trainer for retraining as a riding horse as it has been too many years without being ridden.

I think he has good potential as a combined training or hunter/jumper mount for a fearless teenager. He has shown some ability and willingness to jump. He may make a very good endurance prospect. He has lots of energy and is willing to do what is asked of him. He learns new tasks quickly and would only need some tuning and training to be ready to go. He really needs a job and plenty of work.

Maestro has a scar on his right hind heel. He put his foot through my metal barn when he was a yearling (kicking at coyotes we think). It’s just a raised scar now. It never caused him any lameness.

Maestro was bitten on the face by a rattlesnake in 2012. He recovered with nothing more than a very healthy dislike for rattly things.

Maestro has good ground manners. He backs, side passes, and turns on all quarters from the ground. He stops when you stop. He picks up his feet for cleaning. His feet are good enough to not need shoes. I give yearly shots and he is perfect about them. He wiggles during his bath and doesn’t like to have his head rinsed, but is getting better (I don’t give enough baths to get my horses really used to them). He clips and loads into a trailer without fuss.

My horses generally live outdoors. They have access to shelter, but prefer to be out. Maestro has been stalled on occasion, most recently in 2012 after being bitten by a rattlesnake. The vets put him on 30 days of no sunlight so he was in during the day and out at night. He was bored, but he managed. He was also stalled for 4 weeks after kicking in the barn and cutting his heel.

This horse is a real snuggler. He really enjoys people and tries very hard to please.
