Ryder is a 7 year old, 17.2hh draft cross gelding. He is easy going and nice to work around. He crossties, stands to be bathed, clipped, groomed and tacked. He is used to being trailered off of the farm and is fantastic at new locations. He settles in immediately and is not phased by anything! He is broke to ride and drives as well, both single and double. Under saddle, Ryder stands to be mounted and will let you do just about anything with him. He’s been trail rode significantly and will go up banks, down, through water, over bridges and jump natural obstacles. He is willing, quiet, not spooky and just an all-around fun ride. He will lead or follow and doesn’t’ care about what the other horses are doing. He’s safe with traffic, people, dogs, etc. You won’t find a more reliable mount – ride him double, backwards or sideways – nothing bothers him! He has had beginner riders on him and is 100% reliable. He’s forgiving and safe for any rider. He’s an all-around nice, big horse that will take up the leg of a taller rider but isn’t too clunky. Ryder is athletic enough to be molded into a fox hunter, low level eventer, etc. Forgiving enough for the less experienced riders to hop on and trail ride, etc. He has no vices or issues what so ever and is 100% sound. If you’re looking for a safe, reliable horse to build confidence he’s the one! Cannot say enough good things about him.
