**REDUCED** Ben is a 15.3h, 10 year old Percheron/Morgan cross. He both rides and drives. He’s been highly trained in natural horsemanship and to be honest he knows more about riding than I do. He walks, trots, and canters, though you have to push him a bit to canter under saddle. He side-passes and I rode him through an extreme obstacle course with ease. The reason I’m selling him is because he’s a little too fast for me. He has a fast trot and a gorgeous extended trot that is wicked fast.... (read more) The farm I purchased him from got him from the Amish, where he was used exclusively as their private surrey horse. When he hits pavement, he is trained that it’s time to move out. I’m looking for something very sedate and laid back for trail riding. Right now Ben’s training is being wasted and I think there are many disciplines he would excel at. He’s pretty enough to do dressage with the right training, sturdy enough to ride trails all day and would make a lovely carriage horse. He needs someone who can work him regularly and keep up on the level of training he possesses. He is the dominant one in the field, but has been turned out in the past with geldings and mares. I’ve led him with a 4 year riding on a bareback pad, with absolutely no issues whatsoever. He was a puppy dog with a loose lead. He is not a beginners horse, however, but would be fine for an advanced beginner or intermediate level rider. He is UTD on shots, Coggins and his feet have been done regularly and is fine barefoot. A good home is a MUST. It wasn’t an easy decision to sell him and I don’t want to see him turned over to killer buyers because of his large size. He’s a very sweet horse, with A LOT of potential, he’s just not the right horse for my family. Video is available. Price may be negotiable to the right home.
