Chester is an experienced trail horse with a big motor. He needs a confident rider only because his motor can be intimidating to an inexperienced rider. His ground manners are perfect. He loads eagerly, stands perfectly for the farrier, and is an absolute gentleman. He likes to move out and cover ground, but he is not a run away by any means. He is Prides Generator on top and Triple Threat on bottom, and apparently he is typical of this breeding.... (read more)
He neck reins and gaits smoothly on a loose rein. He is not pacey, he does a running walk, foxtrot, rack, and great rocking chair canter. He side passes and has a great handle on him in general. He is not spooky. He will drop his head and walk quietly if asked, but does so more easily after the first few miles. He does not like arena work. He has been through some of the Competitive Trail Horse obstacles like they were nothing. My husband and I both enjoy him, but we are moving and have more horses than we can take with us. If you are interested, please come ride with me and try him out. A good home where he will be appreciated is important. I rated him a 7 on temperament, but he is more of a 2 or 3 on the ground.
