We are very impressed and proud of him, so far he hasn't shown any hint of a buck,rear, hissy fit,etc. Hubby rode him down the road just a little ways and around the yard the second day and he did great, then he got a nice cool bath and was able to graze in the yard. I have NEVER seen a stud as easy to handle and as easy to break as Sundance.
Chanti is still pretty much resting. There's no sign of lameness now but I'm only hand walking her and I use boots every time. It'll be another month before I even think about riding her and then it'll be walking for a few weeks, then we'll go back into trotting but she'll mainly be used for guests. I'm wanting to get another horse I can show next year.
First, Sundance. Hubby said he's very smooth to ride but we can't decide on what gait he does, if any. He has a big overstride though but I don't think it's TN Walker, might be foxtrot? I took a video and we are going to ride later today and I'll get more pics, but do you have any idea?
I think he was trotting here, above pic.
I have a better lunging pic that shows his stride, just didn't upload it yet.
More coming. Any ideas on his breed?
