Phats is a very friendly, well behaved boy. He stands great for the vet and farrier and is easy to de-worm. He stands to be bathed and groomed and loads and ties wonderfully. He is bossy but nice to other horses. He is great with younger kids, my 5 year brother has jumped cross-poles with him and if my brother landed and Phats neck, Phats would immediatly walk and halt. He has nice ground manners and will just follow you around.He lunges very well and was used as a lesson horse for about 4 or 5 months and did well.
Phats events and does jumpers and some dressage shows. He is also steady enough that I got a 1st in equatation over fences with him. He has schooled to 3'3" and is showing at 3'. He has jumped 3'6". He has been to many shows and been out and about a lot. He is schooling Pre-Training eventing (3') and is solid at Entry level eventing (2'9"). Phats competed at the PNE and over 3 days 4 rounds he never once knocked a rail in the 3' jumpers. He is a little strong out on cross-country but is simply ridden in a 3-Ring Elevator bit and is amazing! He goes through water, down drops and banks, over tires and almost any jump you point him at, he does ditches and colourful stadium jumps too. If he runs out (which is rarely) all you have to do is yell, "Get!" and he does it. He has wonderful movement and rounds up nicely for dressage. He has a nice scopey jump and a nice stride for a pony. Phats is a bit lazy but if you put your leg on he will go forward and is great for jumpers. We are teaching him his lead changes and he changes, he just is a little lazy and he'd rather just go around on the wrong lead, but we are getting him there.
Phats has been cattle penning and sorting and is not exactly "cowy" but is not nervous or afraid of the cows and goes right into them. He is great on trails and has almost no spook. If he spooks all it is is a little shy away from something. He cows through puddles and over bridges with ease. He is most definitely controllable.
So how much do you think this super cute guy is worth?
