Offered for sale: Winston, 11YO 15.1-15.2hh Buckskin Quarter Horse. Easy and uncomplicated ride on the flat - he is soft in the reins and goes naturally in a frame. He is super fun on the flat! Winston is happy to take it easy, but will give you everything he's got when it's time to work. Scored in the high 60s/low 70s with his owner at local dressage schooling shows during the 2020 season.
We also consider Winston to be a "trail expert", and he will hack out for miles. He happily navigates through water, deep mud, over logs & sticks, and up/down steep hills on less than perfect footing. He pays attention to his surroundings, and can have the occasional startle (as any typical horse will), but he is sensible about it. He hacks out in company, and will happily lead or follow - his owner always rides with others, therefore we are unsure how he hacks out alone.
He has limited jumping experience, and will happily trot small cross rails and pop over small jumps in the ring, or out on the trail. He is so fun on the flat and on trails that we've seen no reason to further pursue jumping with him.
Winston is very personable, and enjoys a bond with his owner - he is the horse that nickers when he sees you and waits for you to catches him from turnout. His ground manners are wonderful, and he is friendly without being pushy or in your space. No bad habits or health issues that we are aware of. He is a gentleman for the vet and farrier, and easily self loads on our trailer.
Very sadly offered to a new home at no fault of his own (owner very recently welcomed her first human baby). For size reference, owner is 5'9", and has been ridden by her husband, who is 6'1" - Winston does take up a lot of leg. He is a "good dude", and a GREAT home is an absolute MUST!
