Meet Royal! He is a 16 yo 15.2 and a half hand high flea bitten grey gelding. He has both AQHA and foundation papers. Has coggins, shots, current on dewormer & barefoot trim. We are in the process of getting a dentist scheduled (tough with the holidays and all).
I purchased this guy as a resale project for myself, but life happens and I need to sell him sooner than I anticipated.... (read more) I’ve been documenting his progress via my Facebook page, Equiloutions, so feel free to check out all the video and pictures on there of Royal Goldun Peppy or Roy/Royal for short. I am a firm believer in setting the horse up to succeed in every aspect of his upcoming home. I also have trainer notes I’m willing to disclose.
Royal is a nervous guy, but he’s a thinker! I’ve taught him to stop his feet (in which stops his mind) and think. Along with roundpen playtime, he’s coming along quite nicely. He was a day worker horse for many years, however I have NOT worked him in such manner yet. I wanted to work him through his emotional stuff before asking that from him.
Through our training, I’ve found him to be very responsive to leg, seat and rein aids. His teeth do need to be floated (in the works) so I have not done much snaffle work with him. He does try to collect! He just doesn’t have the top line just yet to maintain. We ride in a rope halter in which he enjoys the most. He aims to please. He has never bucked or reared under saddle. I would say he’d best suit someone who is either an intermediate level rider working closely with a trainer or an experienced rider. Confidence is key with this guy. With our consistent work, he thrives. He is a workhorse with an amazing work ethic. Constantly trying to figure out what you’re asking of him so he can please. If I wasn’t in the situation I’m currently in, he would not be for sale. His price will increase with further training. I believe this guy would be suitable for almost any discipline. He has amazing endurance and will cover some serious ground. We’ve averaged five miles a day with nothing but willingness. I’ve taken him over several small x rail and ground pole jumps (I’m thinking 3day eventing!!!) He loads, ties, etc. He seems to have a touch of barn sourness, which I noticed when we were headed back to the horse trailer on our first ride that we hauled to. Headed back to the barn isn’t much of an issue. I was able to ride him HANDS FREE (there’s video on my FB page) on our last ride ride down our road headed home. He’s smart. He just gets nervous sometimes. Has never reacted poorly though. Example; When he's coming out of his stall into the isleway, he starts with the head up and looking..wide eyes. All I have to tell him is he’s ok, and let’s think about this...and I swear he settles down. He likes being talked to!!
I am able to offer further training and board for him and purchaser upon request at buyers expense. This guy is truly a diamond in the rough, and is going to be something spectacular.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have and to set up a time to come meet Sir Royal!
