Wonderful Matty is for sale. Matty is an 8yo, 15.1hh, Stock Horse x TB gelding. Three forward and comfortable paces and is an absolute pleasure to ride. Quiet but responsive and happy to give as much as the rider asks. He keeps a cool head when learning new things, never says 'no' and gives his best at everything he tries. He has no brace and no bad habits so is ready to be taken forward with a new owner. He is a compact and athletic fellow so could be trained in any discipline. He has basic dressage training (straightness, bend, balanced transistions, starting shoulder in, leg yield, half pass) and has attended a clinic at indoor arena where his behavior could not be faulted (see video). I have ridden him over small jumps in an arena and on trails which he handles beautifully and doesn't fizz up. He is fantastic on trails, no different going away or toward home and happy to walk or trot or roll along in his gorgeous uphill canter. Great with cows on the trail, no problems with badly behaved dogs or scary objects such as wooden bridges and earth moving equipment. I have taken him to a Team Penning day (see video) where he was 100% relaxed where less activity was occurring but a bit horse shy in the hub of activity. I don't think it would take much to work through this though. He would be great for a confident teenager needing an all rounder type horse but also lovely as a pleasure horse or dressage/jumping/eventing/cattle work/working equitation prospect. Prior to being with me, Matty did not have a substantial amount of riding so I would consider him fairly green. I had him for a month last year and he has been back with me now for anothere month. He is a supere quick learner so with consistent riding the sky is the limit! Additionally, he self loads onto float, is a good doer! No queensland itch, very healthy feet so is sound barefoot, not herd bound at all. This guy is one of the most affectionate horses I've met, both to humans and other horses. Kisses and cuddles are one of his favorite things but he is very respectful about it, never barging, happy to stay in his own space of asked and yielding off a very light touch on the ground. He will be your best friend and have your back on all your chosen adventures!
