'Scandal' is a 2016 (5 year old) black registered Oldenburg gelding standing at 16.1h. Schooling all 3rd level with easy flying changes. Three high quality gaits with great hind-leg and an exceptional walk. EXTREMELY AA FRIENDLY!!! Incredibly easy to get round and on the contact, my grandma could do it. Forgiving of mistakes with an easy going, laid back and sweet personality. His compact style makes him very easy to ride and sit for the AA rider.
SAFE SAFE SAFE. Zero buck, spook, rear, bolt, etc. Zero lunging required, even after several days of no turnout or days off, just hop right on! More whoa than go, responds well to aids but also not overly sensitive so is great for an amateur to learn on while bringing him up the levels! Goes well off seat and leg aids and remains light and soft in the contact. Very quick learner and wants to please. Enjoys hacking out around the property and cavalettis on his cross training days. Takes up your leg well, rider is 5'7.
Remains relaxed in new situations. Has been to schooling shows and has cross country schooled and was very well behaved for both! Previous owner bought him to do eventing and realized he doesn't have the jumping scope required to take him up the eventing levels and clearly with his great movement, disposition and style he has much more potential as an upper level dressage horse.
Great manners on ground, in cross ties, stall, turnout, bathing, trailer loading, etc. Never had any soundness or health issues whatsoever, and no stable vices. Easy keeper, not on any special food/supplements and is currently turned out during the day and stabled at night. Gets along equally well with both individual and group turnout. Currently wears regular front shoes and is barefoot behind.
Current PPE and X-rays done two months ago, all clean. Zero maintenance. UTD on all vaccinations, Coggins etc. USEF lifetime registered.
Located in Alpharetta, just north of Atlanta, GA. Please contact Madison Lareau at (765) 237-8842 or [email protected] if interested!
