For all the folks posting to this forum re: video.....this was his fifth ride off-the-track and out of race training. I am not (nor do I profess to be) an eventer, even though I ride in a hunt seat saddle (yes, there are other english disciplines!) This is a very quiet horse and many times in order to find them homes in a western state (Oklahoma) they need to be sane enough to trail ride and use tack other than english style.
For the new buyer......he retired sound from the track, had never been shoeless when I owned him and as I represented to prospective buyers I did not know how he would do barefoot. It doesn't sound like he's been well-cared for in the interim.
Please send me an email and let me know how you're doing.
