Ski Pole is a very sweet and honest guy. With 47 starts he has certainly been there and done that but is always keen for a new adventure. He last stated September 2017 and was restarted this past May for the makeover after some time off. He has three comfortable gaits and would do well in any discipline. He recently started jumping and has been eager to go over anything you point him at, I think he would make a great AA hunter over fences. No boots or rear, if he is unsure of a situation his response is to stop in place. He will make a great partner with a few more show miles under his belt.

Ski Pole does have osselets on both front ankles, they are cold and have never bothered him. He also has a few scars on the hind cannon bones from getting caught up in a fence over the winter. These are all causmetic and superficial and will fade with time.

Ski Pole is also a mild cribber, mainly at meal time on his feed bucket. If bucket is removed or he is turned out he does not crib.
