The Commissioner is a TB/Perch cross. 16'1hh. Foaled 6/2009. He has an exceptional personality and willingness to work. Sweet Sweet Sweet! Quietly stands in cross ties, easy to load, great with the farrier. Hunted (one full season) several times with the Wayne DuPage Hunt and the Massbach Hounds and he took to the fields and hills wonderfully. He is very fit.
The horses that we keep have to be capable of Eventing in addition to Fox Hunting.... (read more) After 1 year in training, we had The Commissioner evaluated by a Rolex level Eventer who suggested that he is not a good fit for as an Eventing partner to bring up the ranks to the higher levels of Eventing and clinics.
Fox Hunting seems to be the perfect job for The Commissioner and we think his niche would be a staff horse or 2nd field or hill-toping. He is well-balanced (natural lead-changes) and does not have a competitive brain and is comfortable around the hounds. He has been a pleasure to ride all season in the hunt.
The Commissioner has been in training for a full year indoors and outdoors. He is comfortable in both settings. He may be a good low-level Hunt prospect or trail riding partner as well.
This was a very difficult decision to make, but as the season approaches we feel this nice horse should start working with a new partner.
