He was purchased from auction a couple of years ago and was at Kildare Stables for a little while before that, but he didn't want to be a lesson horse as he needs his own person to bond with as he really craves human attention and guidance.
He will benefit from an experienced handler as he can be stubborn and has learnt to shut down and will need someone who is calm and assertive. He responds very well to liberty work and is quite a smart boy if given the chance to use his brain! He needs a refresher in his ground manners (someone will be doing some work with him over the next few weeks) and should be restarted under-saddle but he definitely has a lot to offer the right person. He is a very sweet horse and has a good personality and is pretty solid; not spooky at all and not scared of swinging lead ropes, whips, etc. He is not sound sensitive or motion sensitive, but he does require a gentle and assertive individual with the skills to retrain him without the use of force. He is very willing but will shut down if pushed too hard.
He is currently located in Maple Ridge and his adoption fee is $500. His current caretakers just want to find him a family who will dote on him. Contact us if you are interested!
