Darius is an eight year old, 16hh Percheron/TB cross gelding. If you're looking for a steady-eddy, all around horse he's your go to guy! Can't ride for a week? No problem! Darius is a weekend warrior or trail riders dream. He's cute as a button with a great personality and stellar mind to match! He's been schooled in the ring walk/trot/canter and will go in a frame and move off of your leg as well as jump a course of fences. However, we find him most enjoyable out on the trails!... (read more) He's a perfect angel and is safe for anyone to climb aboard. He has three nice gaits that won't put you out of the tack - nor does he feel like he's going to go anywhere quickly. In addition he's got a great voice command of "whoa"! He will trail ride anywhere and is great in new locations. He's been frequently trailered off the farm and is always the same. Quiet, brave and steady. He will cross the creeks, bridges, lead, follow, whatever you ask for - he's happy to oblige. He's great hacking alone or out in a group. He's been schooled over fences out cross country and is brave and willing. He's jumped small logs, coops and natural obstacles. He would be a fantastic partner for someone looking to build their confidence and have a good time on a safe, reliable horse. He's had beginners on him and is extremely forgiving - he's got more whoa than go, a complete insurance policy! For the more experienced rider he has no troubles though keeping up with the group when needed. In the barn he's a real pleasure to work around. He crossties, clips, stands for the farrier, is good to be bathed and stands to be tacked and mounted. In addition this boy does drive and is broke single. For those looking to do a little bit of both, he's your guy! Super safe, no spook. Snaffle mouth. Good with dogs, bikes, joggers, vehicles, etc. Lovely all around horse for the laid-back rider looking to have some fun. Darius is one for the entire family to enjoy. He's 100% safe for the little ones to work around and rides quietly enough to throw the hubby or friend on for a ride. He has no vices or issues. Good home is a must for this sweet boy!
