Conquest Gladiator is truly ready to conquer his next career! He stands 16.1 currently with an elegant uphill build. He is a confident leader but is currently happy turned out with an alpha gelding in Unbridled Luck. They get along famously and are often grazing side by side. He is vocal when he meets new neighbors and he was fascinated that he could touch both his neighbors in our stalls at first. Now they are old news. He does not have any stall vices such as cribbing or weaving.
Gladiator’s canter is incredibly dreamy to ride. He is balanced with great impulsion from behind for as green as he is.. Needs a confident rider as he will occasionally test his boundaries. He can throw in a little tantrum about steering or a very easy to ride buck but that has been the extent of it. Much like a teenager, as soon as he realizes he can’t get away with it he gives up. Also, like many talented horses there is a little bit of ego in there which make them great competitors. Gladiator was retired with the bowed tendon that will not prove to be much of a limitation, he is suitable for jumping and flatwork careers with an advanced rider.
