Beautiful, Bold Arabian Gelding For Sale
Caliber is not a 'hot' horse, he is more push than pull. He is not incredibly spooky either, he tends to look at things sometimes but can be pushed forward and through it. I have taken him out trail riding and he goes through water nicely. He has no issues with horses riding up behind or around him. He gets a little jiggy when he gets too far behind the group but allows me to hold him back with no rearing or other naughtiness. I have ridden out on trails and roads by himself as well with no problems. I tend to do a long warm up for all the horses that I ride and that works well for Caliber. I also like to lunge on Mondays or once a week to allow the horses to express themselves at liberty.
Caliber has not been overworked in his lifetime and has no lameness or unsoundnesses that I know of. He is a lot of fun to ride! His feet are in good condition, due to the stomping associated with the flies this summer his feet were chipping and so he does have shoes on his front feet. Prior the fly season he didn’t show any need for shoes. And as far as overall health: he has no history of colic, has been in the best of care with his owner for his entire life and is on no feed supplements.
Caliber is very easy to have around the barn. He stables easily or lives outside. He gets along in a herd situation well. He has been at the top of the pecking order but mostly at the bottom in various groups he has been with. When he is stalled he occasionally gets nervous with horses going but not too often and it doesn’t last forever. He ties easily and loves to be bathed. He takes treats with his lips and its adorable!
Caliber has been shown western for a short time as a young horse. His most recent riding has been dressage training and riding trails.
We would like to find a very good home for Caliber as he is like family to us. We will consider him going far away, but prefer for him to go somewhere relatively close to MN or a neighboring state.
