Project horse needs experience rider
Hurry Uncle Frank, nicknamed Flash, is a very sweet horse. Easy to catch,
loads, leads, ties, and stands to be bathed. Flash needs an experienced
rider because he will take advantage of someone who will let him get
over on them. Flash is a nice mover but is SLIGHTLY back at the knee
and probably could not jump very high even though he loves to jump.
Trainer said he could go through the training levels of dressage and
possibly level one, maybe higher. He'd be happier as a trail horse /
He has very good form, the vet and my trainer have approved him for
any type of riding as long as he's not overly jumped at high heights or
He can go barefoot or with shoes, doesn't matter either way to him.
Currently wears shoes. Flash is in training for Dressage and is responsive
on the bit and learning to yield to leg pressure. He walks, trots and
canters but needs work on the canter since we've only been working on
walk and trot. He was put most of the winter (maybe ridden once a week)
and is ready to work. I ride him bareback with a halter and can walk
and trot him and he's a perfect gentleman. I can run with him at liberty
and he's right by my side, walk, trot, and canter and doesn't miss a step.
He's clicker trained and can touch targets, smile and bow. Flash needs
a KIND and PATIENT farrier. When we bought him as a two year old stud he
had fairy feet and since then has never liked the farrier. He stands well
for trims as long as the person he's bonded to stands with him and pets
him. He bonds to one person and LOVES them and usually only them. As
for shoes, he still needs work but is getting better. Hence the need
for a patient farrier. Flash fights back if handled by an aggressive
farrier! Our farrier has NEVER had to hit him and he does fine with
patience and letting him realize no ones going to hurt him.
Flash has never offered to kick or bite. I can hug him from behind and
