Prince is a gorgeous full blooded palomino appaloosa. He's 14.3 hh and 11 yrs old. He's totally sound, very athletic, and has GREAT conformation.
Prince does great on trails. I ride him in groups and by himself. He doesn't have any problems with leading or following and doesn't mind other horses passing him.... (read more) He's not barn sour either. He'll cross water, ditches, and jumps anything you ask him to. I've put beginners on him and he does great. He neck reins perfectly with minimal pressure. I ride in either a very soft snaffle or bitless. I've taken him past barking dogs, chain saws, tarps, and traffic and he does great. He didn't spook once but he was cautious and on alert. He tries to think through new situations instead of just reacting to them. If startled, he tends to come to a complete halt for a few seconds to size everything up before continuing forward. He loads calmly with no hesitation, bathes great, ties, stands for the farrier, stands for mounting, rides bareback, english, and western. He also takes the bit perfectly; never tries to avoid it or lift his head and opens his mouth up like he's taking a treat. It'll get you spoiled.
Prince has a very affectionate disposition and is the submissive one in the pasture. He wants to be loved on and is one of the only horses I've met who seems to enjoy having his whole head embraced in a hug. It's not uncommon to find his nose coming over your shoulder to nuzzle on you. I believe someone has mistreated him at some point because if you throw your arms up around his head (especially if you're holding something in them) his eyes get wide and he freezes like he thinks you might hit him. Once he gets to know you and trust you, this isn't a problem at all. It also doesn't translate to any problems once you're in the saddle. He's a very emotionally oriented horse who desperately wants someone to bond with and trust.
He would make a wonderful hunter/jumper or eventing prospect because he is very willing to jump and has a wonderful, showy presence about him. He carries himself very elegantly and holds his tail out like he's intentionally showing it off. He's also sensitive to saddle cues and has a very soft mouth.
This is one of the few good horses left out there. He's a beautiful horse inside and out and is going to make someone a wonderful partner and trail companion. He needs someone who is gentle, loving, and assertive. If you have any questions AT ALL please don't hesitate to call at any time. 843-seven29-two903 or email.
