16.3hh bay OTTB thoroughbred gelding. Foaled March 24, 2006. Noble and handsome horse with three lovely and comfortable gaits with big but adjustable stride. Counter canters both directions. Solid lead changes. Schooling 3' fences.
Doc has the potential to be a solid hunt horse for a confident rider. He loves to trail ride and easily crosses bridges, water, rivers, roads, logs, and underpasses.
He is a big boy and requires a confident rider. He eats and drinks well, lives within a herd, and is outside 24/7. Doc does not crib, chew, kick, bite, rear, or buck, and he stands well for farrier.
Doc loads easily into an open stock trailer. As an OTTB, he can be suspicious of confined spaces such as closed in trailers. I am working on building his trust in this area and he has begun to willingly self-load into a 2 horse, straight-load, ramp trailer.
Doc responds best to positive reinforcement. He is a good boy and wants to please. He deserves a gentle, confident rider.
