Match is a beautiful 15 yo 15.2 hh dark bay thoroughbred gelding. He is great to stand tied to a tree, trailer, and will chill all day in cross ties. He is a lovable attentive boy and is eager to please. He picks up all his feet and will stand to be brushed and bathed all day. We bathe him without even tying him up and he will just stand there. He is UTD on all his shots and coggins. He can ride just about any discipline you please as he will neck rein, direct rein, and ride bareback, english, or western.... (read more) He is super smooth to ride and attentive to all your cues. His has a good gas and brake as well as leg cues. You can mount him from the ground, mounting block, trailer, fence, or just about anything else you can think of. He has polite ground manners and saddle manners. He is great with other horses and has lived with many other geldings and mares and horses and ponies in a pasture. He has also lived in a stall and has no bad habits.
He would be an excellent dressage prospect as he is a beautiful and collected mover. He has had a little bit of basic dressage training on him. He is a very smooth ride and has some leg cues and is responsive to your cues. He picks up the correct leads and has lead changes.
He would also be great as a trail horse as he loves to ride the trinity trails and has the endurance to go all day. He loves to swim in the creek (when its deep enough) and will cross the water like a gentleman. He is very polite and loves the trails. He is also great on the road and has been a champ around bikes, cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, and obnoxious dogs. He loves to be the trail leader, but will also take up the rear or mosey in the middle. He is even a charm when his friends accidentally bump into him or tailgate.
He would also be great as a 4-H horse as he neck reins and has been ridden western. He is very willing to please and a quick learner. He used to be a lesson horse at a hunter jumper barn and taught the mostly the older riders. He mainly did cross rail lessons and 18inch gate lessons. He taught the beginner lessons to older kids and adults and was excellent.
He is bombproof and has conquered many bombproofing obstacles. He walks through the pool noodles of death and has conquered the bridge. He will go under over or through a tarp and has had scary plastic bags all over him. He has had clanking cans tied all over him and will drag them across the field with the tarp. He can go totally stealth and invisible under a tarp [or invisible cloak if you have one :)] He has walked through and over every surface or ground covering possible. Match has conquered every obstacle I could think of with ease.
I am asking $2800 OBO to an awesome home. He is an excellent horse, but unfortunately I must sell him as I am headed off to college in a few weeks. If you have any questions do not hesitate to email, text, or call anytime. I am in and out of work so if I don't answer please leave a voice message and/or a text and I will get back to you ASAP.
