This gelding has been at my farm a few months, and the pictures of him in the outside pen are current. He was in a full time training program, shown by a youth, and does a little of this and a little of that. He has some great credentials showing Regional AQHA and has been to the congress showing in showmanship. He is a great pattern horse, but this horse needs to be tuned up to show. He has been over fences but he is not a hunter, he was never taught his strides but thats not to say that he couldnt do that. He would make a great horse for a kid that can ride but that wants to work on things as he was shown in 4H and honestly does better in a routine. Hes not mean in the slightest, has a great personality, but if you leave him stalled up he needs to go out on a line and get some of his ya yas out... I have a video of him that is current just going around basic walk trot canter with a rider that has no idea what hes supposed to be doing with his hands, legs or seat but it shows you how tolerant he is.
He is not an easy keeper. He needs more than your basic grain and hay. He is eating Purina Impact Active as well as several supplements currently, along with alfalfa and grass hay and is gaining well but still needs a lot of muscle tone built back up.
Hes for sale at a deal but honestly, the longer I hold onto him and the fatter, and the better he gets I will be increasing his price accordingly especially if we get him going towards the dressage direction...
He trail rides but needs another confident horse to go with as his main focus has been in the ring.
Hes been shown all day, from halter/SMS to walk trot trail, walk trot english, he will lope for the western but he is NOT a western pleasure horse. He gets very heavy on the forhand and if you do not know how to keep him lifted up, push the front leg out he just goes around canter style. IF he had the muscling and fitting up he would be easier to do that but he is not in a routine currently.
This is what this horse can look like in tip top shape. He needs to be back in a program. I am feeding him very well, but he was in rough shape when he came to the farm. This is what he can look like though. I just had GW White put aluminums on the front, steel on the back and hes ready to start building up muscle tone and get back in shape.
What I want you to understand though is that he came to me in much rougher shape, and he was with a family that went jumper style over fences with a kid... and then wanted to trail ride, so hes been so out of shape I honestly have just been feeding the heck out of him and this video is rough as a cob, but its how he is right now.
