Cloud is a stout, well built 11 year old gelding; with two blue eyes, and pretty grey and white pinto markings. He has been shown hunter/jumper, and some combined training. Cloud is not a beginner pony, but would be really fun for an experienced kid that can handle and enjoys a forward type horse. Cloud is a bold jumper, my teenage daughter has taken him over a 3'3" course and he was clearing with room to spare. My younger daughter has shown some hunters with him locally and in 4-H, but he is not really a hunter type. I believe he would make a neat little eventer or fox hunter. Cloud has a big trot for a little guy and he really gets under himself, he was shown at a combined training show by my 12 year old where he scored 8's for his gaits in dressage. They took 3rd in a large division. Cloud can be very quick and nimble on his feet if asked for speed; if someone was inclined to do so, he probably would make a fast little games, barrel, or polebending pony. My kids have played around on him with barrels and poles and he has been patterned, just would need fine tuned. Cloud has been trail rode everywhere and through all sorts of terrain, he has even been on a fox hunt. He will go over or through any obstacle in the field, and is traffic safe on the road. Low maintanance, easy keeper with hardy little barefoot hooves. Easy to manage on the ground, bathes, clips, and trailers well. Will load great into a straight load or stock trailer. Gets along well with other horses in the pasture.
