I used to own one ! He was one of the best horses I've owned .
I regret selling him . He would canter but sometimes broke into a pace lol
I would always get asked why I bought a standy ..... Simple he had the height I wanted 17.1hh and had an awesome attitude . You can not not consider a horse based on breed.
If I could find him I would buy him back in a heart beat.
( no helmet I know .... young an stupid ) I always wear a helmet now
