Diesel is 2006 Thoroughbred gelding. He is completely unraced and was not tattooed but is registered with the Jockey Club as “Sam the Sailor”. He is incredibly well bred with top Champions on top and bottom in his pedigree.
He loves trail riding, fox hunting and stadium jumping. He has amazing ground manners, loads, clips, baths, and stands for farrier like a pro. He loves to live outdoors. He is a light cribber, but he is controlled by a collar.
Diesel camps, goes into lakes, rivers. He needs a western or fox hunting home only. English work in an arena, such as dressage, really stresses him out – we have feeling he had a bad experience in the past. He also surprisingly learned to gait at some point in his life after New Vocations.
He is for an advanced rider only, no children or intermediate riders, mainly due to his size and strength. On the trails he is very easy to ride and gentle.
