Taj is fun and very forward moving under saddle. This being said, he is NOT suitable for a new or inexperienced rider. While his ground manners are great, you have to know what you're doing with him under saddle. While he is not a bucker, rearer, or kicker, he will get fast on you if you aren't strong enough in your riding to break him down.... (read more)
He has been ridden primarily English. I trained in Hunter/Jumpers with him for a couple of years. He looks pretty over fences, but would need a refresher course if you would like him to jump since it's been a few years.
Taj has nice ground manners and lunges very easily. He has been used primarily for trail riding and arena work at home over the past couple of years. UTD on his vaccinations and worming. I have him barefoot at the moment and he does fine in the arena and soft footing. I do put easy-boots on him when we go out on the trail. This horse is great for the farrier, trailer loads, cross-ties, and is just overall a really good guy.
I don't recommend that he be kept in a box stall since he was a cribber when I had him in a box stall a few years ago. He does best in a stall with a run. Not on any special medications, I just give him Legacy joint supplement pellets for maintenance.
