Hooping who we call Henry, is quite the horse! He has presence wherever he goes! Henry did not race until he was 3 and has 50 starts under his “saddle” including several steeplechase races!! Henry came to the program in January and it was very apparent that he simply needed some good time off to just be a horse. He would greatly benefit from daily turnout and a home where he will be able to be in daily program to bring out his best potential! He loves work, he thrives on it!! After working him daily he has settled in and become quite a lovely ride!
He is sound, naturally carries himself, has a beautiful floating trot and a balanced canter. Henry will do best with a confident, advanced rider working with a professional trainer! With the right person who can understand he has difficulties being vulnerable, he will be one amazing horse! He has smarts mixed with athleticism with TONS of potential!!!!!
~ Does well with mares and geldings (does play tough sometimes) ~ Advanced handler on ground and in saddle ~ Learning to stand in crossties ~ LOVES LOVES LOVES to be free lunged before each ride, allows him to stretch and connect with his person!!
