This guy is a puppy dog! He has been shown with points in hunter, western pleasure, halter, showmanship and trail. If you are looking for a horse to teach you or your children, this is the one! He done it all and not arena sour, no bad habits!!! Loads, clips, bathes, farrier good, ties etc. . . . This horse has all the trainng and a wonderful disposition to match! He does have arthitis in one leg which looks worse that it is. I have a video available to serious buyers so you can see he does not limp around and handles it fine without the help of drugs or injections. He is a charmer and we would love to keep him however our hands are full with new babies this year. How much is your childs safety worth?? This is the one to learn on!
