Laredo is 50% Thoroughbred, 25% Friesian, 25% Arab (his grandsire is Nero), is registered with the Friesian Sporthorse Association, and is eligible for the American Warmblood Society, Friesian Heritage Horse, Friesian Sport Horse Registry, and the Friesian Blood Horse Registry. He has large, hard feet (he has always been barefoot) and just had his teeth floated and wolf teeth removed. He has lovely conformation with a beautiful head and great movement.... (read more)
He leads, lunges at all three gaits (takes both leads), has been worked in sidereins, cross ties, single ties, stands for the vet and farrier, has never bit/kicked/bucked/reared, and is very light and sensitive to handle. He is handled daily, gives to pressure, can be touched all over, goes through mud and puddles, is used to barking dogs, and is not herd bound. He works well in hand, schooling shoulder in, leg yield, and spiraling in and out on the lunge. He is easy to bridle and saddle. I have ridden him once and he showed absolutely no signs of bucking.
I am selling him because I am graduating from college in May and traveling abroad for the rest of the year and simply don't have the time to train him, and the longer I have him, the more I spend on board--money I need for college/post-college. His price is negotiable!
