I like doing dressage. And could handle reining. Some people say he would make a great roping horse. He hates to jump but I don't mind cause neither do I. He is a wonderful horse and he's good at learning and he can work hard for long hours if I feed him for it. Builds muscle very easily! He likes to evade every command though it makes it a challenge to ride him despite everything he's lazy which makes it hard for me to get past relaxation and suppleness into the rest of the training pyramid. I have to be very firm with him. He's very flexible. AND FAST! The only other horses I have ever rode faster than him was a TB mare in the Carribbian and and ex TB race horse from Canada. Can't determine if he is built down hill or evenly.
