13 years, 17hh, bay. Registered American Warmblood: sire was a Friesian and dam was a Trakehner x Holsteiner. I have his papers and they can be transferred to your name. I will provide them with the sale. Does w/t/c and has been started over fences. Knows his leads and does auto changes. Very easy going and sensible; he's not bothered by much and is an enjoyable ride. He's not lazy and will move out nicely for you, no crop or spurs needed. Goes in a simple snaffle.
He's an experienced trail horse and will either lead or follow and goes out by himself easily. Not spooked by bikes, dogs, strollers, deer, etc. OK with lots of people and activity in the park. Goes on the road and not bothered by traffic.
Horse is sound and up-to-date on shots. Barefoot and very sound - goes out on trails over gravel and rocks without a miss-step. Needs hock injections only if doing jumping. Gets MSM daily - no other supplements. Very easy keeper - does not take much hay and only gets beet pulp and ration builder and stays fit. Does well in a paddock or can be turned out easily. I can provide vet records and trainer/vet checks are welcomed.
Excellent ground manners. Our farrier has complimented us on having such a well behaved draft cross. He cross-ties and will stand tied. Has been tied at the winery for long periods of time. He can be clipped all over - just falls asleep in the ties. Bathes, grooms, and picks up his feet. Can be tacked easily and doesn't pin his ears or act up. Blankets easily. Very friendly - comes right over to the gate and likes attention.
I am only selling because I am looking to buy a mule. I've wanted one for years and have finally decided to get one. His price reflects only his lack of showing/professional experience. He has a lot of potential.
I am happy to show him to anyone over 18. I have access to another horse if you want me to take you out on a trail ride. Please email for more information and let me know about yourself and your riding experience. Good home only.
