He is a darling boy who was polite to handle, loaded and unloaded well and just wants to please. He is very quiet, good with the other horses (submissive in a herd), good with his feet, etc. Trooper is in need of some more weight and has quite a few bite marks, but will look great after a bit of TLC! He is otherwise sound and healthy.
He was track-broke, but had an accident in pasture resulting in him being over-the-knee, so he never raced. His previous owner started him in English gear back in 2011 and had him on the trails a few times. He is 100% SOUND when ridden in the past, despite his knee and it hasn't stopped him from doing any pleasure work.
As per our under-saddle assessment, Trooper is a lovely boy! He is super light in his mouth and very smooth gaits! Total Cadillac to ride. He has a lot more woah than go and is very quiet. He would be suitable for an advanced beginner or intermediate rider looking for a laid-back trail or pleasure mount only - no jumping!
He is located in Maple Ridge and his adoption fee is $500 with a two-week trial period. Contact us or submit an adoption application to start the process.
