Description

Countmymuscles has a powerful presence. He looks like the king of all he surveys, with his noble carriage and confident demeanor. He’s been blessed with several rare qualities. The first is a beautifully refined, but masculine, face with large expressive eyes that are well set in his wide forehead.  The next is his thick forelock, mane and tail… truly an envy for anyone that’s struggled to grow hair on their showhorse! And finally, his natural racking gait is something he’s had since day one with us and has needed very little in the way of help from the rider.  With those attributes, it’s hard to imagine him as anything but a show horse.

Muscles is brave, but is energetic and will need to be channeled in the right direction by a very good, advanced rider. He has that hot, sensitive and fiery trotter temperament that lends itself well to certain disciplines. His rider will need to be quick to get on, because this fella isn’t standing around all day babysitting- he’s got places to go and things to see.  The best part… under it all he’s a big mushy baby that wants to have an extra close bond with you. Truly a horse that will give his heart for you if asked.

Only serious adopters looking to provide a forever home will be considered. He is best suited for trail riding and easy-gaited show classes. This horse will stay sound if he is not doing high speed work. 

*Muscles was taken to Ohio’s Equine Affaire after only a handful of rides where he managed to get around the busy show and demo atmosphere. Since this video was taken he’s had more ridetime to solidify the basics.
