17.HH OTTB FREE LEASE(onsite)
FREE LEASE - 4 MONTHS+ - ON SITE to experienced rider ONLY.
"Oakley aka Millionaires'Concierge"
17hh Bay TB Gelding. 7 Yrs old. Super sweet and GORGEOUS!
Suited for advanced/experienced rider due to size and inexperience.
Big handsome boy that is currently working on dressage for better leg yields, transitions, shoulder ins and getting on the bit... He has great transitions. Three good gaits with a canter like a lope. I'm currently working on getting him to extend and collect at the trot and canter. Very soft mouth.
He came off the track in August 2012, the day we got him off the track he ran a race and came in 2nd. After the NC State Fair Horse Show in October 2012 we took him too, he did GREAT, he was nervous at first, but what do you expect with a race horse? He calmed down, and I rode him at midnight, and I took him out and rode him all alone at about 3 in the morning, and he's been getting used to things he's never seen before, and being in an open space like the racing grounds KNOWING he's not going to race! So he did well, and we went in flat classes and was GREAT.
Since the fair he developed really bad thrush, and mud gets to him VERY easily, as we recognized, he was unable to be ridden because of his thrush. He's been on break for about 5 months I haven't ridden him in about 4 and a half months, but I do take him out everyday and lunge him, and let him lose in the ring and he runs around and rolls and gets exercise..! I'm currently pregnant, and am looking for someone to come ride him 3-5 times a week, if not more... Just simple flat work... Preferably someone who knows basics of dressage...
He does auto lead changes and does them when asked. When we first got him, he wouldn't pick up his left lead, and now he picks it up from walk to canter beautifully. He loves water and will cross streams no issue.
Oakley cross-ties, Ties, Clips, Bathes( he loves water), Loads, Travels well and is great for farrier. He has no vices other than that thrush incident. He DOES NOT crib!
He still needs work, and I would just like to see someone work with him for a while and actually take the time to get to know him and have patience!
Healthy and UTD on everything.. Will make a great EQ horse and lower level dressage. I'd prefer him to go someone who knows the basics of dressage to help him excel through that, and then start back to jumping...
He has no buck, bolt or rear. He might be somewhat fresh due to not being ridden in 5 months!
Please SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. If you are interested in "ON SITE FREE LEASING", I must see you ride him at least 3 times before I make considerations, I want to make sure you are the right fit. Please call if you would like more information on him. If you are under 18 you must have a trainer.
