*Being put back into work as of April 1st. Price will increase with training, get him while he's cheap!*
Calcifer the Fire Demon is a 2004 OTTB oozing with talent. Schooling 3'3/3'6 courses and novice dressage, he does it all with a level head. Cal has a flying lead change when he is in work and asked correctly. No bite, rear, Buck or kick. Brave and honest to a fence and will take the long or short spot if asked. Cal has a history in eventing and trail riding as well. Goes in a hackamore, barefoot, and has been trained for tackless riding. Cal also knows a few tricks, including "touch" "come" and "stay".
When consistently in work, Cal is a babysitter and will tote around first timers in and out of the ring, however he requires an intermediate rider to get him back into shape, especially for jumping, which he hasn't done in a year. He is never hot in hand and does not grope or drag you when leading. Stands quietly on the cross ties and for vet and farrier. Aced when clipped, but with positive reinforcement training, I clipped him this winter without. Slow to trailer, but 10 minutes of patience gets him on easily.
The only reason I am selling is because I am a busy college student, and as a result, Cal has been off of work for the past 6 months, hence the low price.
Cal also has a hygroma (synovial fluid in the joint) on his front knee that does not affect him. I have it checked yearly by a vet and it has not changed or affected him in the 3 years I've had him, nor had it at his previous owners whom I knew very well. Can provide references.
Negotiable to the right home. May entertain an offsite, paid lease to the right people.
