Santa Rosa, CA: Dutch warmblood trail horse
15 year old bay Dutch warmblood gelding, 16.1 hands, very mellow disposition, suitable for advanced beginner up to 170 lbs. Former dressage horse. An old sacroiliac injury and some cervical arthritis ended his dressage career. He has been sound and used for light to moderate trail riding on flat to moderate slopes for several years. He cannot do steep trails or long (over 4 hours) trail rides. He would be perfect for someone who wants to do light/moderate trails a few times a week. He will work in the arena but doesn't like it very much. He has done Pony Club polocrosse and gymkhana and loved it.
He loads, hauls and travels like an old pro. Many trail miles, great in groups, has done a ride with 100 other horses. Goes English or Western; rides in a bosal. Ties, bathes, clips, great for farrier. Low maintenance, easy keeper, just an easy guy to have around. No supplements or injections needed. Great with other horses. Local trial OK; owner will take him back if it doesn't work out at any point. Please contact email@example.com for details.
