SAFE, SOUND, SWEET, and STUNNING! If you’re looking for a horse that your husband and grandmother can ride or who will build up your confidence and that’s both flashy enough to win in a show ring and calm enough to take out on the trails, then this is your horse.

What stands out most about “Check Point Charlie” is his personality: I have never met a horse whose character so resembled an old Labrador Retriever. He is an “in your pocket” type horse who wants to be friends with everyone. He loves to cuddle and seems delighted to have you hug and hang off of him. Moreover, NOTHING seems to bother him. Having worked 30 years in the horse industry, I never thought I’d be advertising a 3-year-old as a beginner/husband horse, but this guy breaks the rules. I think he’s safer to ride and handle than the other horses in our herd who are 4x his age: he is just so kind, gentle, and unflappable. He’ll move out when asked, but his preferred pace is to smell the roses, appreciate the views, and stop for a picnic. He’ll be a once-in-a-lifetime horse, the horse that you can trust with anything and anyone.

Check Point Charlie (aka “Tater Tot”) is a 3-year-old Tennessee Walking Horse. He currently stands 16HH. We started him driving, and he is confident and relaxed when hitched. He is also very good under saddle: he is responsive to cues, not spooky, rides in a snaffle, and stands to be mounted. He’ll go out alone and has been on many different trails. We don’t believe in pushing young horses, so his training has mostly focused on giving him good experiences in a relaxed environment to teach him confidence, obedience, and to enjoy his job. Thus, he’s a very solid and willing young horse who thinks doing things with people is fun.

If you want a trail horse, he has all the fundamentals, and you can add speed and distance as he gets older. If you want a show horse, it’ll be easy to teach him the finer points of collection, as he’s already soft and responsive. He trailers, bathes, clips, and ties…anything we can think to do with him, he’s happy to cooperate with.
