Equitation, Eventing, Hunt Seat Equitation, Hunter, Hunter Under Saddle, Hunter Jumper, Show Experience
"Jimmy" is a BIG (17.3 h) handsome guy with a goofy personality. He has been shown in hunter under saddle and hunt seat equitation. He has only been to a limited number of shows due to no fault of his own. He has always excelled at open shows, but placed just out of the points at the 3 AQHA shows I hauled him to. Jimmy has also been ridden by the Iowa State University Equestrian Team and used at an IHSA competition. He has a solid foundation over fences and has been started on flying changes.... (read more)
He is currently barefoot, though I usually have front shoes put on him during the summer when I'm riding a lot. He has never been injected and does not require any joint maintenance.
I have owned this horse since he was a yearling. He has never been to a professional trainer. He can be spooky in new situations, but tends to settle quickly with some confident encouragement. That being said, Jimmy is not suitable for a beginner. He loves kids, but needs a more experienced rider. With time and exposure, he will make anyone a nice horse.
Jimmy needs someone who is interested and willing to take him in a different direction. I believe he would enjoy and excel at low level eventing. It's not fair for me to continue to put him on the back burner. He's too nice of a horse to stay home on the farm. I do not HAVE to sell him, so I will be patient in finding the right match for this quirky gelding.
