He was actually used for breeding most of his life (well... he was kept a stud for some reason, only sired a few foals). I am of the opinion that he probably should have been gelded early. He is a gorgeous boy, but there's something a bit funny about his neck and his growth seems to have been stunted... he's technically pony sized.
I got him when he was 17 and had just been gelded. He'd never been ridden, but I did eventually train him and he was a DREAM to ride. Smooth as silk.
He did sire one colt right before I got him and, though sire and dam were both quite short (the dam was just barely over pony sized), Cheyenne is a tall, elegant boy. His owners use him for endurance and I guess he's really good. Makes me wish I'd had Royale when he was younger.
Here's Cheyenne, if anyone is interested: Cheyennepage
