This gelding was used as a buggy horse by the Amish. He has a huge flashy trot!

He was sold as a horse that rides and drives, but got him home to discover that he has never had a saddle on, and I don't have the capacity to start a horse that's never been under saddle. The original sale video shows someone riding him bareback and trotting around.... (read more) He does allow putting a saddle and bridle on, no protest.
He is completely non-visual in his left eye, but you wouldn't know it - he moves straight, leads from either side, lunges both ways, and isn't spooky about being handled or approached from the blind side.
He stands for vet, farrier, bathing, grooming, fly spray, without a flinch. Understands lunging, will trot and canter both directions. Vet says his legs are clean, teeth are ok, nothing concerning came up in his exam.
We don't have a way to test him in harness, but he came with Amish road shoes on.
He was sold as a 14 year old, estimated 10-11 by one vet, and confirmed in the 10- 14 year range by a second vet.
Advertised as a Dutch Harness Horse, opinions of those who have seen him are that he's mostly DHH but probably has some saddlebred in him.
Up to date on vaccines and farrier, wormer, negative coggins. Has been in quarantine for over 35 days, shown no problems.
He is afraid of being approached in the stall but quickly improved on his first day. He will now turn toward people and allow himself to be caught. Is easier to catch in the paddock, and will come to you for grain. He's started following me around in the arena.
This beautiful boy must sell within a week!
