**UPDATE: Must sell before winter as I have a young horse starting training and need the time and space for him. Will consider best reasonable offers.**
Basil (Bordeaux / Grand Cru) is a 12 year old, 16.2 hand bay Hanoverian gelding located in Charlotte, Vermont. He has shown through first level dressage, but has kissing spines and is not comfortable being in a collected dressage frame. This condition is very manageable with regular chiropractic treatment and proper saddle fitting.... (read more) He is sound and happy in a longer, easier frame and would make a nice pleasure or hunter type horse. He is very safe, never naughty, never cold backed, and is best suited to an intermediate rider. He hacks alone and is very quiet, but not completely bombproof. He is tolerant of rider mistakes and forgiving of a non-perfect position; could be a husband horse if they have riding experience. He has not jumped under saddle, but has willingly free jumped with good form. Could be a really nice hunter with some training. No vices and does not need shoes.
