7/8 Thoroughbred 1/8 shire mix. Has wonderful scope, very people friendly with great ground manners. Looking for an onsite half lease, with 2-3 rides per week (negotiable), rides must be scheduled for the first two rides and then I must be notified by email if he was ridden on your designated day or not. Also not to be jumped cross country. Hunter/jumper and dressage are fine.
Needs a confident intermediate rider because he can be headstrong if he thinks the rider is inexperienced. He is excellent on trails and loves to gallop. Usually calm with a shire's disposition, every once in a while gets a little more hot (why I rated him a 4). He is normally a very easy horse to ride with a large stride that really eats space between jumps. Needs a rider that rides leg to hand, prefers a stronger leg to hand, though can be ridden with a lighter hand.
He is very easy to catch and people oriented. He will come up to you in the pasture for attention.
Conveniently located 7 minutes from West Town Mall and 12 minutes from the Gallaher exit in Knoxville. The barn has a covered dressage arena and two permanent jumping arenas with courses that change frequently.
He will be available on the first of March. Serious inquiries ONLY. Need a month's notice about termination of agreement.
