Hank is a super sweet, fun, and flashy 13-year-old Quarter Horse Gelding. He will follow you around like a puppy and loves getting attention. He is super fun to ride and be around. He is always trying his hardest to make you happy. He will pour his heart into his work for you.
Hank is a very cute mover who currently competing in first level dressage and is solid in all of the movements and performs them easily and comfortably. He is forward and through his transitions and responds readily from your seat and leg. We started training Second-level this year. His shoulder-in and haunches-in are looking great. His counter-canter is coming along very nicely and we are focusing on improving his walk-canter-walk transitions. We have also started exploring half-pass which he has picked up on quite easily. He always tries his hardest to please his rider, and never takes an unhonest step. Hank learns quickly and definitely has the potential to go farther. Hank would do great with a rider who wants to continue taking him up the levels.
Although we have worked mostly on dressage the past year, Hank has been around the block a few times. We have done 4H and High-school equestrian where we did english classes and gymkhana and also competed in a few jumping shows. Hank has given many lessons and is always a saint. He loves kids and all of the craziness. He will let them climb around him like a jungle gym. Doesn't mind people jumping on him, standing on his back, hanging off his neck, running under his legs or any other wild stuff that he might have to handle, he will do it without blinking an eye.
Hank also loves to take a break from training now and again to hit the trails. He goes through water, muck, steps over big logs, handles steep slopes well, goes on roads and next to highways with no problem, he will even go through a fast-food drive-through. Hank rides well with other horses and is also brave enough to go alone.
