Awesome, safe, good minded gelding. Best suited for Intermediate rider, safe enough for a beginner, but with enough pep and response for an advanced rider to enjoy as well. Rides English/Western, knows leg cues, and is a very confident jumper, has never refused a jump in the ring or on the trail.
He is gaited for an experienced rider who knows how to ask for it, but also has regular walk/trot/canter/gallop, especially important for approaching jumps. All gaits are smooth and comfortable. Fun to ride bareback, does not bite, kick, buck or rear. Has been to the beach, loves going in the water!
Trailers well, loves going new places and experiencing new things. This is just an awesome all around fun time horse, rides alone or with other horses. Doesnt need to be ridden constantly to stay sane, he is the same horse whether ridden every day or once a month (though he likes to get out more often! :).
No injuries or physical issues. Up to date on all vaccines, coggins, etc. EXCELLENT feet, has been barefoot his whole life, does not need shoes on any terrain.
He would be a wonderful horse for an older child who would love to dote on him, or smaller adult who can give him the attention he craves. He is a very social, curious, people oriented horse, who always greets you with a whinny. It breaks my heart to sell him, but just cant keep up financially anymore. Price is negotiable to the right home.
Shadow would be an excellent first horse, or could also be an enjoyable mount for an experienced rider who wants to be able to just get on and ride with no issues to work through.
Also will be selling his buddy, a registered miniature Leopard Appy Stallion, as well as a 2010 two horse bumper pull aluminum Shadow horse trailer.
