Kauai Kid is an animated youngster. He is all about playtime in the field and loves his group of buddies. He is confident so he is not the bottom of the group but he is not the leader either. Kid is not a huge fan of standing still, he has happy feet. He does not do anything bad in our wash rack crossties but he is just not perfectly still. He is just like a little kid! He does not have any stall vices.
Under saddle, Kauai Kid loves to work. He thinks its all an exciting adventure. He is not generally spooky but can have some greenie moments where he is surprised by new things. He gets over that quickly and is ready to move on with activities. He is coming along nicely and is full of athleticism. I think he would really enjoy the variety of challenges that eventing has to offer but he retired sound after three winless starts so he is suitable for any discipline. He likes to play with the bit so we have found he goes much better in the micklem bridle. He is really a fun, go-getter youngster who will do best with a rider that is patient while he matures mentally. Kid is best suited for an advanced intermediate working with a trainer or an advanced rider.
