Mikie is around six years old and probably almost 16+ hands tall. He is a big boy, with big bones. Strong and willing to go anywhere you ask.
On the ground: he loves being clipped, brushed. He will stand patiently while he gets a bath, being saddled and has not problem with the farrier. No need for shoes on this guy, his feet are rock solid and sound. He loads into a trailer with just a point of your finger.
Halter work.... (read more) He knows how to round pen, Lounges and the walk, trot, lope and canter. He will change directions with just the movement of your body. Mikie leads from either side of the person leading him. He will do this at the walk and trot. I can't jog fast enough to get the lope. He will yield his fore quarters and hind quarters. He backs with four different body commands. He can side pass along the fence (Prelude to side passing under saddle). We have spend many hours with Mikies ground training, these are just some of the things he is capable of performing, when he is in tune with you he can even get them done with no halter.
Under saddle: Mikie will go anywhere you ask him to go. He has been ridden in the city through restaurant and Walgreens drive thru. We even took him trick or treating one year. He loves mountain trails, up, down no problem, water, loves it, brush or trees, a synch. You can blaze your own trail if you want. He can be walked, trotted, loped or ran all out on a trail. He has jumped small obstacles with no sign of hesitation at all. Backs and opens gates, anything you ask. Saddle: The saddle is about two years old and is a 17" Circle Y Park and Trail Flex tree II Dark walnut color. It comes with matching chest plate and buck synch and Professionals Choice girth. Mikie uses a correctional pad because he has high withers and the pad has special pockets to fill those spots. He also has a dark walnut bridle and rains to match (not Circle Y).
