Oliver raced as a 3-4 year old and was even in the money. Since then, he has had one owner who took him in the English direction with show jumping and dressage until I got this amazing horse when he was 18 when she had to move across the country. He is now 21, and I have ridden him off and on since then, and he is always such a great guy for me even though I was new to English riding. He’s such a joy to be around, to ride, and to work with, and I have learned so much from him. Sadly, I graduated from college and am now pursuing my career and no longer have the time he deserves. I hate to see him go, but I know that he would be happier with someone who has more time to ride him because he absolutely loves to be ridden and worked. He actually nickers when he sees me get the saddle out. He’s truly a happy guy, no buck or rear, not spooky, but would do best with an intermediate to advanced rider because he is a more forward horse, but he is a very kind and gentle giant. Please let me know if you have any questions!
