10 year old 15.2/15.3h paint gelding (registered name Quiet Owl) for sale for $3500. An all around English horse Orion would make a great 4-H or pony club mount. Won All-Around Sport Horse when shown in Advanced English at the 2016 Summit County Fair with his leaser. Has been taken to open shows, dressage shows, trail riding, and the Bath Haunted Hunter Pace. He took first in several of the small dressage shows attended as well as placing often in the ribbons at the open shows.... (read more) Has been started over fences but does struggle to stay straight to a fence and needs a rider who can steer with their legs. With the right rider he enjoys jumping and confidently jumps natural fences, colorful poles, and flower boxes in the ring as well as a multitude of low cross-country fences at the hunter pace. Has been jumped as high as 2’6” when testing his potential but is more consistently jumping courses in the 2’ range. On the flat he has three clear gaits and both leads. Has been started on simple changes and would be ready to start flyings with a strong rider. He has more whoa than go most days and does require an active leg, but rides well in spurs to help with this. He cross ties, stands for farrier, can go barefoot but needs front shoes if jumping, and currently gets stalled at night and turned out with geldings during the day. He has been worked 3-4 days a week as well as sat for 3-4 weeks and you get the same horse either way. I am selling him as I have just had a baby and am struggling to find the time as well as needing physical therapy for an injury before I will be ready to really get back to riding 100%. He is a young capable horse and it just isn’t fair to ask him to stand around for an unknown amount of time as I sort things out.

Access to an indoor means you can come see him anytime regardless of the weather. Call or text 513-314-3730 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
