This horse is a big bay thoroughbred gelding. I have his papers showing his winnings from his racing years. He was born April 21, 2004. His registered name is Engaging Lover but I call him Goliath because he is really tall (around 17 hands). According to records, he has been off of the race track since 2009. He is gentle and quiet. My husband used him for trail riding last fall, then he was out to pasture for the winter and we didn't ride at all. About a month ago, I got him up and had absolutely no problems catching him or riding him. Although he is gentle, he needs to go to someone who knows how to handle horses because he's intimidating just because of his size. He needs a gentle hand on the rein. He is not super quick on his turns but I have had no trouble working with him on that. He has always been willing to do whatever is asked of him. He has a sweet temperament. In the pasture he is not a dominant horse. Even though he's the biggest horse we have, he never wants to fight. He is a Great trail horse! and would be a good candidate for training in your field of expertise. Up to date Coggins. Ready to go. $1800 OBO- Hurry! Call today!
