Echo Beach has got a big ol apple bottom and is an all-around easy keeper. He has a soft quiet demeanor and is not standoffish but he is not the in your face seeking attention type either. He is more laid-back. He is turned out with Cerise’s Prince and is the quieter of the two in turn out. Cerise likes to get spunky and run while Echo prefers to stand and graze. Echo does not have any stall vices.
Under saddle Echo is willing to please and has a beautiful large stride. He has three comfortable gaits and just needs supporting leg to keep him moving forward. He reaches for contact with the bit and gives to the hand. He is also happy to go along with a very light contact. In the arena he is nearly unflappable. First time out on the trail there was some mild side eye and a couple snorts the first time out and about but the second time he was an old pro. He likes trail riding with buddies and also enjoys low level dressage work. He is best suited for flat work and pleasure careers. He is a pleasant ride and companion for an intermediate rider!
