Description

Archie is for anyone who enjoys doing a little bit with their horse everyday as he excels with that type of routine.  He has shown us that the more turn out time he gets the happier he is and the quieter he is to work with.  Archie has been out with as many as 9 other geldings at a time, so he can handle a herd situation without problem or a single gelding, it doesn’t matter to him, just that he gets his time outside.  Since he is smart and reads people quickly he does best in a stricter schedule with someone who will give him boundaries to stay within or he will try to boss you around thinking he is funny.  Give him rules he can count on and it is all good.  He is an athletic horse with nice movement that will make him suitable for most disciplines and he has no vices.  The first video is a recent video and the second one was taken earlier in the spring.  He looks completely different without his winter coat, but still has a wild mane!
