Archie is a 10yr old Appaloosa. He stands at 15.3 hands and about 1000lbs.
For the past two years I have mainly been riding him in dressage, but he loves to jump.We did our first UDS dressage show this spring and he got first place in both classes but his heart belongs to jumping. I actually bought him for a jumper but realized jumping was not for me. He is very forward to the jumps and has never had a refusal. I have only jumped him in the 2' division but the place I bought him(Parkwood Jumpers) schooled him at 3'6".
Archie has good form and would excel as a jumper. He keeps his knees tucked in and he arcs over the fences.
I have video of a friend riding him at the Golden Spike Cross Country course(check out his FB page). It was his first time there and he didn't refuse once. He would make an excellent Eventer too.
Archie is a great trail horse too. I have ridden him extensively in the mountains and have camped several times with him. He would be a good candidate for the Chief Joesph Trail Ride. I can ride him in groups or alone. He will cross water, bridges, ditches etc. He is great around bikes, ATVs, hikers, dogs, deer, bison, you name it.
He has excellent ground manners. He ties, clips, trailers, bathes and is good for the farrier. His UTD on vaccinations, worming, and shoes.
Please contact me if you are interested or have questions. I will only sell him to the right home. Price is negotiable to the right home.
Check out his Facebook page for more photos and video.
