Taz is a 20-year-old, bay, thoroughbred gelding who needs a new home. He was a 3'6"+ show-jumper in his prime. Now, he is happiest packing people around 2' courses and through a variety of exercises on the flat. He would also make a good trail horse, but I would recommend having another horse join him for the first few rides until he gets more comfortable alone. Taz does require maintenance - he has recurrent lymphangitis that responds well to antibiotics and steroids when a flare-up occurs.... (read more) He is as gentle and calm on the ground as they come and unflappable under saddle - Taz is the horse that calmly trots around the ring during a loud thunderstorm and only glances at scary objects on the ground. He loves bananas, Twizzlers, and watermelon and adores having his face curried. Taz would be happiest in a small lesson program or with an adult looking for a confidence boost in the saddle. He is honest to jumps and will come into a frame when asked properly. This horse would prefer to be in a program working 5-6 days a week, as this keeps his lymphangitis under control as well. Videos of him jumping and flatting can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC56JsjJMP0N1ybtpyzlo_wg. Please contact me with any questions!
