This is just a very cool horse! She is still green, but very sensitive and willing to please. Goldi currently Walks/Trots/ Canters, backs, steps over poles or small logs, moves laterally off the riders leg. She works in the round pen nicely off voice/ body commands, lunges and long-lines extremely well. Despite her heavy looks, Goldi is light in the bridle, and also light off the leg. She responds to voice commands under saddle as well. Goldi needs a sensitive intermediate to advanced rider who can help continue to give her confidence under saddle. She can occasionally be spooky- mainly to noises, and so needs a confident handler. She is working towards training level dressage, and my feeling is that she would excel in this discipline. If you enjoy bareback riding, this horse is super comfortable! Her big, wide back and smooth gaits make a nice, secure place to sit! Goldi is an extremely easy keeper- eats lots of hay, hardly any grain, goes barefoot, has a thick, hardy coat in the winter, lives happily indoors or out, gets along well with the herd. Goldi trailers well, and also ties.
