Hot to Trot also known as “Harry” around the barn is a sweet and affectionate gelding. He entered in the New Vocations program from our friends at MidAtlantic Horse Rescue who saved him from the New Holland auction in January. Harry was DNA tested for identification and also had a registered TIP number.
Harry is a pleasure to work with, he is friendly and people oriented. He enjoys grooming and interacting with you. He does still needs work on picking up his feet and relaxing while working underneath of him. Harry is a very kind horse and doesn’t have a mean bone in his body, he’s just green.
Under saddle he is working on the basics. He is a little unsure of the riders aids but is a willing and blank slate. Harry does his very best to appease his rider and is naturally a brave horse that really responds well to his rider. He has hacked around the farm and ridden in the ring alone and with company. He has smooth and enjoyable gaits. Harry needs an adopter that is looking for a low level pleasure horse that has experience working with young horses. He is sound however his limitations are due to front leg “bench” conformation and “roughening” in his hock. He is not a jumping candidate. Radiographs are available to approved adopters upon request.
