I have a very cute 15.1 bay gelding. He was originally from out west and started western on a ranch, brought up here and did some dressage and I bought him after I saw him trot. He was schooling 2'9" and showing 2'6" hunter courses. Always wins the flat, guaranteed. Huge, flat kneed, daisy cutter. He was sold and was "cowboyed" pretty badly. He is still a little quick and nervous about his mouth under saddle. He gets nervous now when jumping and sort of charges. No buck, rear, etc. He needs an experienced and confident rider. With patience and a soft hand he could probably be back doing the hunters, possibly the jumpers - he's rather quick and can make those tight turns, or even eventing, he has tons of stamina and very versitle. If you or anyone you know may be interested, please let me know. I just need to find this guy a compatible and long term home.
He looks quite scopy. He could make a good jumper. His movement is also quite good. He's not the best built horse around, but he's not built badly. I think he could be a good horse for any discipline... hope that helps :)
Ya, as I say, he's done tons of stuff. But he is not your conformation winner, he's rather long bodied. He's quite scopey but when it comes to the closer spots he gets careless. Very quick and has amazing leg aids, can make the jumper turns no problem. I just need to find him a good home, I work at the barn and have a serious show horse right now plus school = hardly any time. I've had him for about 6 years...minus a few months when he was sold and had to take him back because he was being ridden very harshly.
