Elmer is a KID SAFE gelding that almost anyone can ride. Perfect beginners horse.
We have had him for 5+years and have used him a lot! Selling because the kids ride "big" horses now.
He leads, stands tied, loads, trailers, all very well.. good for farrier.
Can be ridden bareback, saddle, or double- he doesn't care.. rides out alone too.
He has foundered a few times and is currently recovering from his last one....... (read more) we now know how to treat it, and he is improving significantly- His front hoofs are back to normal and his back ones are about 1/2 way there.... In order to keep his founder under control, he needs a trim every 4-5 weeks.. We are thinking about shoeing him, which should help even more.
He is very low in the pecking order and is on pasture 24/7 -- one thing.. his favorite gait is WALKING! lol - you can get him to trot/gallop but it takes a little work...great teaching horse!
Let me know if you have any questions or want to come and look at him. Thanks
NOTE: located in Valley City, North Dakota(1 hr. west of Fargo) ---> can send more pics.
