Creature is a 15.2 hh barefoot bay gelding with a star with nothing super spectacular about his looks, but he’s not done growing yet, and is personality is what makes him so eye catching. Once he’s filled out he’s going to be phenomenal and his body will match his brain! He’s currently butt high and a little under muscled, so you have to look at him with the future in mind.
With Creature being butt high and only just turned 3 you’ll see that he’s going to even out and has a big growth spurt coming soon.... (read more) Once he fills out his large barrel will make him that highly sought after Qh style build, at about 16/16.1 hh at maturity.
Creature is sound and ready to start his career with a mom that has a sense of humor as well as experience with knowing when how to laughing it off, and most importantly, green horses.
This boy can MOVE. He was super excited in his first evaluation ride and still had an extension that would make every dressage professional stop in their tracks, all while he was in giraffe mode. Just imagine when he carries his body right!!!! He will need a strong confident rider to finish him while activating his mind and guiding him right.
Creature has been doing lunge works every 2 days and a trail once a week, all with super loose draw lines to encourage his head down. He has a lovely sitting trot and is starting to use his hind end and lower that neck and relax once he focuses, which is hard to do when there are deer, rabbits, chipmunks and cows EVERYWHERE on the trails.
This guy is NOT for beginners or small kids. He likes to play here and there, and needs reminded that he is not the boss. Why is he like this?
Creature was retired early due to low minor bows that are cold and set, and was put on stall rest to heal. What 2-3 year old wants to live in a box 24/7? None. So Creature became a kind of grumpy 3 year old with a few bad habits. The staff at the last barn weren’t stern enough with him and let him play mind games. He’s not mean, he’s just a very smart and very bored 3 year old. My bet has examined his bows and has no concerns with Creature pursuing a full career through an intermediate (4’) level.
This boy loves baths... like, LOVESSS baths. And head scratches, or just any kind of loving attention. He’s very motivated by food, and loves to be out in with the herd, although if his stall is open he will go in to hang out, so long as he can see everyone. He just doesn’t like the door being shut (and who can blame him!!!) Creature likes to be the dominant boy in the herd and is very playful, so a companion that can dish it right back is a must.
This guy will be amazing with the right rider, I have no doubt about that!

This guy does NOT have jumping videos nor will he. He is not ready to jump. Do not bother to ask. He’s too young and needs started more under saddle before he jumps.
