Sonny is a 5 yr old 15h gelding. Double registered (waiting on papers) This guy has quite the personality. Very laid back and easy going. Stands nice tied and has great ground manners. Did great with the dogs running all around him and the hustle and bustle of the barn. Feet need some work big time, but the farrier will be here tomorrow. Toes out a bit on his front right but should straighten up some with a decent trim. His feet are obnoxiously long.... (read more) This guy knows how to lounge, stays out of your space when you are walking and respects boundaries. He did not make one wrong move on the ground or under saddle.
Now the fun part, riding. How much fun was this guy? Feather light touch on his bit and you can tell this guy has had some quality training. World Champion? Probably not. Great for 4H or WSCA? All day long! Collection like a dream, listens to your leg, beautiful stop. Sticky in the pivot. Beautiful transitions and stays where you put him. Likes to lift his head to the lope but has an excellent start on him... Took him down the road and he was great following every where. Was fine going through knee deep snow banks and around traffic. (cars and trucks, no semi's or school buses yet) Even asked his to stay behind when the lead horse went back and he left the group. Was a little more nervous by himself but just wiggled around a bit. Did great walking over the scary yellow blanket in the arena as his first obstacle. He was hesitant but walked over it with very little effort, maybe a small snort.
