He is double registered, both pinto and saddlebred. I’ve done a few open shows with him and he does really well at shows, better than at home. As far as I know, he’s done jumping, saddleseat, and western pleasure in his old homes. I’ve done a bit of everything with him including ground driving and trails. We’ve crossed ditches and shallow water, but he does not do good on trails without another horse. He does best with a buddy and is anxious when he’s alone, but he’s mostly fine once he starts moving. He’s better inside alone than he is outside.
He does have aural plaque on both ears, but it’s kept at bay with a cream and fly mask during warmer months. It only bothers him in his right ear. There’s a blind spot in his right eye which makes him very looky and he’s fairly spooky when not under consistent work. He needs to be on pasture 24/7 as he gets anxious in stalls and develops ulcers, loses weight/muscle super fast, needs shoes, and overall is more uptight and stressed out. When outside 24/7, he doesn’t need shoes and visibly is more relaxed. He has a club foot that doesn’t bother him at all. My vet and farrier said it’s not worth correcting because of his age and it has no effect on him.
He has so much potential and could be an amazing pleasure horse with consistent work. Elvis is super fun to ride and has comfortable gaits when relaxed. He rides western and english and goes in a solid snaffle most of the time. He could really go in any direction you want besides speed. He can get unbalanced at the canter and prefers to go slower. I ride him bridleless quite often on days he’s calm and he loves it. Don't let his age fool you, most people who meet him think he’s still in single digits!
He does need some sedation for sheath cleaning, but is really good for vaccinations. He’s decent for the farrier and dentist. Elvis has been pastured with all types of horses and ponies and he’s gotten along with almost all of them, including a mini. He will go with whatever supplements he has left along with some tack and other things. Located in Muskegon MI. Asking 35xx Message for more info
