Shiloh can be best described as an all around horse. He is honest and a very fast learner. He is soft mouthed and rides with leg cues. I have had him for just over two years now and this horse has helped me grow SO much as a rider!
Shiloh was a recreational/trial horse for most of his life before I bought him. Due to that history, he is very quiet and calm on the trails. He loves to jump any logs or fallen branches that might cross his path. He was also ridden in parades while I was in 4-H. This past summer, we took him team sorting and he didn't hesitate to get right up on a cow.
Before starting Shiloh on barrels, we decided to teach him some basic dressage. Little did we know that Shiloh already knew how to demonstrate the passage, the half pass, and flying lead changes; all of which make him a great athlete.
I showed Shiloh during my final year in 4-H and at local shows; mostly in Gymkhana, which he excelled in. Shiloh knows all of the patterns and always finishes at least a full second ahead of the competition at these shows. We also qualified and competed at the 2009 Michigan 4-H State Show. Shiloh and I finished that 4-H season as the top gymkhana horse and rider team in Saginaw County.
During 4-H, I entered Shiloh in a few pleasure and trail classes, which he has a LOT of untapped potential for. I just chose to focus mainly on gymkhana and barrel racing due to my own interests. He could easily become a hunt seat or western pleasure horse.
Shiloh loads, lounges, clips, ties, and bathes like a pro. He stands for the farrier and will ride bareback as well. He is easy to saddle and bridle. This horse has no vices!
He really is a great horse and I'm only selling him because I'm ready to move on to a younger, faster horse to start on barrels. I'm a college student working full time and I just don't have time for two horses, so it's time for Shiloh to find a new rider to grow with.
Shiloh would do best with an intermediate youth or adult rider and a good home is a must! Price is negotiable. Feel free to email me if you would like to see pictures/videos of him. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call or email me.
