"Sherlock" Grade Appaloosa Gelding
9yrs old 15.1hh
***Can be hardship registered ApHC***
FOR SALE $2200
If blending in with the crowd is not your style, Sherlock should be right up your alley! This boy is LOUD colored and gorgeous! We are so sad that there was no sun to be had on photo day because these photos don't even begin to capture how handsome he really is!
Sherlock has been used as a jumping horse and this guy jumps BIG. (Those of you who know me know that I do NOT jump but we just could not pass this guy up!) Sherlock is a brave and bold guy under saddle so cross country fans, take a good look! This guy likes the trails too and would work quite well for hunter pace riders.
On the ground, anybody can handle Sherlock. This guy is a sweetheart to work with and around. Easy to catch, always a gentleman on the lead, ties, cross ties, clips, sprays, trailers, tacks quietly. He doesn't fidget and is a patient guy. Under saddle, Sherlock comes alive and is ready to go. He will walk along quietly on a loose rein but if you are trotting, he is hoping to canter and when you canter, he is a strong moving guy that can cover some ground. Our video doesn't really showcase him well but we have to work with what we have. Going around in circles in the ring under western tack is really not this boy's thing at all and he was a pretty good sport about it!
While he has been used exclusively as an English riding and jumping horse, we think that Sherlock could take quite readily to games as well. He is responsive and certainly has the engine and handle required of a playday horse.
Sherlock is clean legged with good bone, nice feet, and solid conformation. He is sound and sane with no vices of any kind.
