For your consideration: registered 8 year old, 16.3H ApHC gelding, DaVinci Detail, out of Renaissance Man and Dee Dee Detail. He won a National Championship in 2009 (see photo) and acts like a puppy on the ground. Under saddle, he has been very well-trained, but is not suitable for a beginner. He has spent the last 45 days in spring training with Taylor Quint at Spotlight Performance Horses in Hodgdon, ME. He does not buck/rear/bolt and is completely fearless on the trail. He will follow our full-size farm tractor around and loves to walk alongside me when I snow-blow. I have never met a more curious horse. He is a wonderful boy, but I rarely get to ride and he should be shown! He is known as Koda (it means Friend in Sioux) at our house.
Koda is a goober and will give kisses and has great barn manners. I can be in his stall doing anything, go under his belly - nothing phases him. He is highly intelligent and needs to be stimulated or he will find ways to entertain himself - he likes to rearrange the barn. He doesn't chew - he moves things. My farrier loves him because Koda likes to steal his tools and act all proud when he can pull off a theft.
Anyway, long story short, he would be best in a show home where he is brought to his full potential or at least ridden more than 3 times a summer. I am too busy and lack the knowledge to develop him. Due to his training, age, and breeding, I am asking $6,500 but for the right home, I would negotiate. I am in Northern Maine and can answer any questions you may have.
I am NOT in a hurry to sell him – he can stay at my house and get fat before I send him into the wrong situation. Buyer must sign a first right of refusal with me when he is purchased. Please message me with any questions! Thank you.
