Striking 16.1 hand, 10 year old, Bay Thoroughbred Gelding for sale. Sweet Pete, aka Pete, would be great for an Adult Amateur or Junior looking for their first 3 Ft. horse. Pete is not heavy in your hand and prefers consistent leg pressure from his rider. Pete is brave and trustworthy on the flat and on course both at home and away at horse shows. Does not require excessive show prep. Pete keeps a rhythmic pace on course and can find a distance to a fence with ease. He also has great sweeping movement which will get you a prize in any hack class. Pete enjoys jumping 2'9" â€“ 3", but can be a school master for a 2'6" rider as well. Pete has had multiple years of experience with riders ranging from beginner to 3'. He is a joy to ride in and out of the ring, on the trails, or a field.
Sweet Pete will spend the 2013 Show Season campaigning on the "A" circuit and his local show circuit.
