Bayou Lights is a registered 2001 American Paint Horse gelding. He also has a lifetime membership with the USEF. I have owned him since 2007; in that time, I have shown him in the jumpers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania (finishing 7th in the nation in the Over Fences category of the American Paint Horse Association’s Paint Alternative Competition program in 2009), taken him on trails, and dabbled in dressage. He was originally broke Western in his home state of Texas, and he still retains that conscientious connection with the rider’s seat and subtle shifts in weight. He wants to please his rider and actively seeks a connection with the bit. He goes in a French link D-ring snaffle, and I’ve ridden him in a halter; he has a soft, responsive mouth. He loves to be fussed over, and will happily stand for full body clipping, trimming, braiding, baths, etc. He is the horse in the barn that people are naturally drawn to because of his striking colors and his sweet personality.

He will require an intermediate/experienced home. He can be nervous in certain situations and requires reassurance that things will be okay. For instance, he can spook at someone doing a head-on pass in the ring at high speed, trying to stop or shy away from the other horse. He has dealt with crowded warm-up rings at horse shows, but he needs a confident rider in that instance to send him forward. Most of the time, he is happy to plod along, and if you are riding in a ring with other riders who are respectful enough to indicate where they are headed, he’ll be fine. I mention it only because I am NOT a horse dealer, just a regular horse owner, and I believe in full disclosure. He has had inexperienced/beginner riders on him in a lesson environment (primarily dressage), and he’s taken great care with them; likewise, he is perfect when being led around by a handler with a rider on his back at the walk and trot. I am seeking a non-jumping home for him as he has diagnosed navicular in his right front (I have his most recent x-rays from May of this year available for inspection). He is in bar shoes in the front (hinds are barefoot) and has been going well on the flat, and he benefits from a regular exercise schedule. He is currently receiving two professional rides a week with a trainer, as I can’t get to the barn because of work. He has potential as a lower level dressage horse, a camp horse, a lesson horse, a trail horse, or a therapeutic horse. He is comfortable in turnout with a group or individually. I have done everything in my power to ensure that he has had top notch care from head to hoof. He is a wonderful horse that I feel privileged to have had in my life, and I feel that some of his best years are still ahead. My work schedule and finances are not allowing me to spend as much time with him as I would like, and he deserves to be adored 24/7. Price is VERY negotiable to a great home.
