    Foal
    Hi,

    You are very lucky to get a horse like this, they are very inteligent animals, learn fast and forget little.
    I was lucky to ride several of these, they where trained to do tricks, eg:-laydown, rear, rear and kick, dresage, etc.
    Do you know of his background, has he been trained in any of these areas.
    If so, you may be able to learn some of the aids. Can be tricky.

    Is he a stallion, or gelding, if uncut, has papers and has a very good temp. You could consider breeding with him.

    Nice boy..................

    Thanks!
    Cad is a gelding. He was kept as a breeding stallion until he was 5 - he is 9 now. He has two babies on the ground, one is out of a qh mare and one is out of an arab. I would have loved to see him crossed with a purered Andy.
    He has excellent bloodlines. He is a Leviton grandson as well as a Regalado grandson. His bloodlines can be seen on allbreedpedigree.com under his registered name, Chukote.
    I've used him as a dressage horse and that is where most of his training is. We've won several ribbons and championships at the lower levels and the only things stopping us from showing at the mid-upper levels are time and money.
    When he was in training last summer (when the under saddle picture was taken) he was being taught the Spanish Walk.
    I've also done a little bit of jumping, eventing, hunter, and (don't laugh) barrel racing and cutting with Cad. Just for fun. His dressage training really helped with the cutting. He is very responsive and can turn on a dime.
    His temperment is wonderful. I have my niece and nephews (ages 3-10) around him all the time and he is wonderful with them. My nephew is riding him in my avatar pic. He's the kind of horse I as an advanced rider can get on and have fun with, and then I can stick a kid on him (on the lunge line or on a lead rope, of course) and he will take care of them. =) I really really with he were still a stud because I would love to have a foal or two by him. And I know a lot of people who would love to have one similar to him.

    He is STUNNING!!

    I think the (just been riden pic did him no justice but then I guess he had sweated on his ride and was also tired!

    You are very lucky!!!

    Enjoy the new arena and being able to get riding again-its so difficult without one (ground to soft and then to hard-impossible I know myself!)
