Starsky is a really great kid horse. I won't say he is bomb proof, but pretty close. He is a fabulous trail horse, he can pony another horse or be ponied by another horse. He does fun day lead line, parades, stands tied as long as you want, stands for the farrier, etc., etc. You can ride him with just a halter, or use a hackamore or just about any bit. He is a real treat to have around. Watch Youtube Video video.
