I am moving to Normal/Bloomington area for school in August. I have two horses and looking to lease out/shareboard my gelding. He is a 22 year old Morgan/Percheron cross (15.3hh). He has mainly a trail horse for the past 3 years but can be ridden in an arena of course. He is a GREAT confidence booster as he does not buck, rear, bolt, etc. Great horse to learn on or get confidence back after a bad fall. His lope is smooth as butter!! He is a huge baby, loves his treats and attention. I ride him western but I am open to having him ridden English, however, since he is draft and a bit older, he cannot be jumped or do any barrels/poles/etc. He is 100% sound and can walk, trot, canter, no problem. He is just for pleasure. Leasing can start in August/September and be a month-month basis, you do not have to sign a contract for a time period. He is my baby so I expect him to be treated as if he were your own. Proper grooming prior to ride, cooling out/warming up, is required. He can be ridden by a beginner that has never been on a horse before, but I would like someone that at least knows proper horse care and how to tack up. I am willing to teach as well and you can take lessons at the place I am boarding at as well. I will be boarding at Equiventure Stables in Bloomington.I will cover all his vet, farrier, and so on. Price depends on how much often he is ridden. I am open to offers as well, but It would be about $175 for 3 rides per week, and obviously can be determined based on how many days you would like to ride. The max is 6 days/week, I give my horses 1 day off a week. He can be test ridden a few times to see how you like him as well. I am open to any age leasing him out, he would be a great kids horse. He would also be a great lesson horse if you are a trainer looking for a horse to use for lessons. Thank you! Please email me with any questions. I currently live an hour or so north of Chicago in Cary, IL, and am open to coming to try him here too if you are close. Thanks!
The photos are of him with a 10 year old girl riding bareback. I do have a few (meteocre) videos of him just with the girl riding him or other goofy stuff.
