Sale Information

King has been trained in preparation for hunters or jumpers the last 9 months. Impeccable ground manners and a willing to please, easy going attitude will make him amateur friendly, but his ground covering stride and boldness over jumps (currently jumping 2’6" courses with changes) will keep any level rider happy.
King is not spooky and self loads in the trailer (and backs out), and will plod down the trail on a loose rein. Hacks out alone or with company, and ready to tackle the next adventure.
UPDATE 11/12/2020: King’s sale fell through due to a pasture injury prior to being shipped to buyer. His tendon was partially severed in the old injury location, and given 2.5months of pasture rest and rehab. The vet cleared him for flatwork and trail rides and he has been slowly brought back into work. He can resume jumping in a few months, but will be limited to light jumping and nothing over 2’6. The longer he is given a break from jumping, the better the tendon will heal, and we expect a full recovery.
Because he is still in the "rehab" stage, his price is now 00. Here are some links to the trail ride this weekend- first time being ridden in two months, and hardly a spook, went over bridges, through wash outs and through mud no problem!

Shows potential for: Amateur Friendly, Eventing, Horsemanship, Junior Friendly, Show Hunter, Show Jumper, Trail
