Don't let his breed fool you; he is a very willing partner with the right leader. He needs someone that will give him a job to do. Major is not fond of sitting around in a pen or pasture. He does love his rides.
His ground manners are great, he can be clipped, bathed, and stand patiently for the farrier, no issues with the vet, and will stand tied for hours with no fuss. He had his teeth floated within the past six months and is up to date on all his shots.... (read more) No need for shoes, his feet are as hard as rocks.
On the halter, he leads from either side at the walk and trot; lunges at a walk, trot, lope, canter, backs at various speeds, side pass along the fence, yield his hindquarters, yields his forequarters, and goes up and down hills, crosses water, and over obstacles. While in the round pen or on the lounge line will change speed with just a point of your finger and change directions with the movement of your body. He can pony other horses or be ponied. As for trailering. . . all you have to do is point, and he will gladly walk in, and is a gentleman inside the trailer as well.
Under saddle he walks, trots, lopes, canters, backs at various speeds. He loves to go on long trail rides and can go for hours with no problem going anywhere you ask. He has been ridden on busy city streets, around cows and sheep, through water and made his own path through mountain brushes. I have fires pistols from his back with minimal issues, more practice would only make him batter. He is in the process of learning vertical flextion at the walk and trot. No need to post this guy is smooth. Major be ridden in a snaffle or western bit. He can be head strong at times, but a great prospect for many disciplines.
