This big beautiful boy is Glory. He is an unregistered National Show Horse which is 1/2 Arabian and 1/2 American Saddlebred. I have had him all of his life and he is very special to me because he was born on my son's 1st birthday. I am selling him because I no longer have the time to work with him and I feel he has much more potential than what I can offer him. I originally trained him for the trails. He has carried me through many rivers, streams and over many mountains. He is very sure footed. Always takes the right step and never trips. He will go where you point him, he will ride away from the group and he will jump anything you put in front of him.
I have always ridden him in either an egg butt snaffle or a d-ring. He has a very soft mouth and will stop at the close of your hands. I believe he has great potential for someone who likes dressage or eventing because he is so supple in your hands and throughout his body. Bends very nicely and easily around and away from your leg when asked to. He also has a lovely head and neck carriage. He has a lot of knee action as well so might be suitable as a jumper.
Glory definitely has a very outgoing and loving personality. He knows his name and will always run up to you in the pasture when called. He really enjoys any extra personal attention he can grab. He stands perfectly for the ferrier, vet and for clipping. Has even allowed me to clip him without a halter on. Easy to catch, stands for baths, loads in trailer, worms easily (which I do every other mo.), utd on all vaccinations and just had his teeth floated 4 wks ago. He also lunges very well on a lungeline and will also free lunge in any arena no matter the size.
Glory will make a wonderful mount for someone who is willing to put in some time with him. He does need a rider that is at least an intermediate rider due to the fact that he does have some spunk. I would not recommend him for a beginner. Please feel free to email or call me to ask any further questions.
