Incredibly safe and amateur friendly 2016, 15.3 hh, heterozygous grey PRE stallion. He is registered with IALHA and ANCEE. He can be gelded. He is currently schooling 3rd level with a green change. He has the capacity for much more. Not just talented, he is also very sweet. One of my young students rode him recently and commented that “he is easier to ride than her own horse.”

He has no vices or maintenance other than normal supplements. He is shod, but I rode him for 2 years without shoes. He is easy to handle around other horses including mares.
