12 year old 14.3hh Arabian gelding for consideration
We have owned Altay for over a year but are unable to ride him enough because the realities of life with a newborn have set in! For the last two months, he has been in professional training for a tune-up and to get him into excellent shape with Mirjam Hunt with Hunt Classical Horsemanship in Middletown, VA. He can be seen there.
Sensitive and aiming to please, he moves off legs nicely and has a nice bend and roundness in his movements.... (read more) He originally was purchased from Brooke Bayley Equestrian in Middleburg, VA where he did flatwork and low level jumping. Like many Arabians, he mirrors your energy. He is calm under saddle as a default. Rides out alone or with others on the buckle/loose rein.
Because he mirrors moods, he needs an intermediate rider. Is looky on trails but he does not bolt/rear/buck or have any other vices. He has great feet and goes unshod if not riding on the road/gravel. He is an easy keeper. With ample pasture, he lives off Spring/Summer grass with grain/hay in the winter.
Middle of the pecking order with excellent ground manners. Goes English/Western. He is not registered. Happy to share his PPE results from last year with serious buyers that shows his overall health and soundness. $6500. A good home is a must and he is negotiable to the right situation.
