Dakota is a level headed, trail lover….he is looking for a new trail companion. I ride him out alone for hours. He rides in a group well too. He is not too worried about anything. We have encountered everything from coyotes, to deer, elk, and mountain lion. He did not spook with the cat, just snorted a few times until I paid attention and noticed the cat. He was a hunter/jumper and had lots of professional training on him when I got him 10 years ago.... (read more) But I have not been jumping him.
He has never been injured or unsound since I have owned him. He is as healthy as they come.
He loads easily, trailers without complaint. Will tie for saddle/farrier/bath.
He spent years at our home where we had a motocross track on two sides of the pasture, is confident on the trail when we have encountered motorcycles, mountain bikes and quads.
I ride him in English tack with either a snaffle or bit less bridle. I have had completely green riders on him out on open pasture in Western tack and never had an issue.
He is calm, but not a deadhead. He loves to let loose and gallop, but will walk/trot without a problem.
He is not on any medication or supplements and is an easy keeper.
I am only selling him due to a job change that resulted in significant loss of income and cannot afford him, otherwise I would NOT let him go.
Great for a confident beginner all the way to experienced rider looking for a trustworthy trail companion to have fun with. I have never been bored, nor worried about my safety with this boy!
