FANCY, sound, sweet, 16 hand, Chestnut, TB, gelding for free lease. This is a great opportunity for someone who wants to enjoy life on a great horse. Shady can be hacked out alone or in company in large or small groups. He has been to numerous Hunter and dressage shows, schooled xcountry and has been an all-around great guy. He is PERFECT on the ground and is easily handled by children or non-horsey adults. He stands for vet, farrier, dentist, chiropractor, etc easily and calmly. Loves baths and to be doted on my anyone, but especially loves kids. Anyone can ride him on the flat, but he needs an intermediate rider over fences, as he isn't very confident over fences and will rush. He is currently being ridden by our daughter who is a D-2. It's not a good match over fences, but on the flat, they're okay.
He's an easy keeper, eating 6# of oats and grass hay and wears front shoes. He can be in a stall or out 24/7 with access to a run-in. This is a great, easy going horse who is fun to ride. In our barn, he's the "go to" guy when you want to head out for a hack and enjoy the world.
Just want to put in a good word for Shady. I have known him for the 5 yrs or so and he is a lovely horse. Loves to trail ride and really well broke on the flat with competitive dressage scores. You couldn't ask for a sweeter horse to ride and work around.
