In Place (barn name “Phineas”) has a sweet, in your-pocket personality. He is 16.3 hands and 10 years old. He has great ground manners – good in the cross ties, baths, loads, and clips. No vices – does not crib, weave, paw, etc. Phin can be a little hot and energetic – lots of forward in him. No spook, but plenty of go. Phin is probably a 5 or 6 on the temperament scale.  He does well with an experienced quiet rider. Phin has been in consistent work for the past 16 months – primarily dressage. He naturally stretches and seeks contact and is learning to become more balanced and has strengthened his top line. He’s done some low jumping but is very green. Competed at elementary and advanced elementary in the Fall 2017. He is confident out by himself and has no herd attachment issues. 

While Phin has a great brain and personality, his physical issues will limit his ability to move any higher in jumping. He will not be suitable for upper level jumping or eventing due to kissing spine and weakness in the hind quarters. Good fitting tack and careful maintenance of conditioning are needed to keep him comfortable in his job even at the low levels. He goes nicely in a happy mouth double jointed snaffle.  Phin has 2 1/2 good gaits – the left canter is a work in progress.
Phin would be happiest out of the ring – he’d be phenomenal in hunter paces or trail riding. He has been turned out with a herd and gets along well with others. Phin is a curious, happy, playful horse. Good door latches are a must. 

Phin is located in North Granby, CT.
