2015 OTTB Forty West "Smoke". Project horse. We bought this horse for my husband to trail ride. Covid changed his work situation and now he just doesn't have the time for him. Smoke is lightly restarted. Has been great for trails. He been in the river and swam in Lake Anna. With a confident horse he will pretty much follow their lead. Very curious type.
We have a small lesson program and he had been doing WT, obstacle courses and has gone in our summer camp. He's a pretty low key guy. More whoa than go for a TB. But I would say he's NOT a kids horse bc of his age and light retraining. Beautiful mover. His trot is a dream. He goes English and western. Needs to continue learning his neck rein aid. Athletic and picks things up pretty quick. He'd do best with a trainer and a calm, confident rider. We use very light hands. So a heavy handed person would annoy him I'm sure. Just needs someone wanting to finish his training. He really thrives on the trails! He also likes the obstacle courses since he's a curious guy. Has casually popped over some logs and cross rails. He's been turned out on the pasture the last 45 days with an occasional WT ride. Loads. Stands in cross ties. Doesn't like to tie to trees/trailer yer- sometimes he does well with it other times he's too nervous and pulls back. Something to work on. Loves to be scratched!! He's a silly, fun loving horse. He comes up to you in pasture. Loves hanging out with people. Will try to mutual groom you. No other vices known. Healthy, UTD on Coggins, shots, and worming. I think he'd make a great family horse down the road as he matures.
