He is fourteen years old. Was a pasture pet for most of his life up until I received him four months ago. He now rides English and Western, walk, jog, trot, canter and gallop. He will jump low jumps and trot or canter the barrel and pole patterns (for fun). Rides bareback with a halter and leads, rides double too.
He is SMART and loves to learn so to keep him busy we've started teaching tricks (bow, waive a flag, step up, throw jolly ball)
He has taken very well to learning voice commands. He will trot off and stand in a corner on command (its just cute), free lounges voice commanded, "leads" with out a halter or lead rope (follows), backs up voice commanded etc.
He does however require a rider who will RIDE him not be a passenger. He is not a big dumb draft he is a big too smart for his own good draft which is excellent for me, terrible for anyone novice or timid
Stands for the farrier, trail rides in a group but not well alone yet, gets along with everyone, easy to catch (puts his head into his halter for you), stands tied, easy to tack up, stands still to get on and so fourth.
A) Over all critique and what do you think of him.
B) He is for sale, curious, what would you feel is a fair asking price?
C) If you were guessing his breed what would you think? (Belgian x ?)
