Will is absolutely the barn favorite! No one walks out of there without falling in love with his personality and his winter weather moustache! Unfortunately, he is loved very deeply by an owner whose financial situation has changed abruptly. Will is in immediate need of an equally loving owner who will take care of him for the rest of his life. Price is negotiable; the right home is essential. Will is professionally trained to ride using English and Dressage principles, though he has not been under saddle in about a year. He has been used as a lesson horse a few times and has had children as young as 5 ride him for fun, but he tends to be lazy, so his perfect match is a confident rider interested in light arena work or trail riding. Beginners not recommended simply because he needs to be guided, not forced. Will has been ridden exclusively in a bitless bridle for the last five years and responds very well to natural horsemanship. Did I mention he's a really GREAT horse to be around? He leads well, doesn't bolt or spook, and stands for the farrier. Rides well either alone or with other horses. Pastures with mares and geldings. Loading is unknown as he hasn't been moved in several years, but didn't present any problems at that time. UTD on all shots, Coggins negative, teeth floated in Spring 2017. Comes with a Dr. Cook's Bitless bridle, reins, new winter blanket, and various tack box essentials. What you need to know... Will has a VERY common genetic draft condition called Chronic Progressive Lymphedema (also known as chronic scratches) which requires monthly ivermectin, his feathers shaved off, and hoof trimmings kept routine. There is no cure, but the condition is managed with over the counter shampoos, and his legs and feet must be kept dry to avoid skin infections. Bring him in at night, keep up on routine care and exercise, and you're going to be rewarded with a fun and loving companion for years to come!
