King is so adorable with that boyish charm everyone is drawn to. He is independent but will follow you to the ends of the earth if asked to do so, so he would make a great partner for anyone interested in teaching a horse natural horsemanship or games on the ground. King is basically happy with whatever he is doing and likes when everyone cheers him on. The more schooling he has received the softer and longer his stride has gotten and the more confidence he has gained, so there is more to come. He will be suitable for an intermediate level ride working with a trainer and suitable for most disciplines. His vice is that he does not like his legs picked up, but he has been getting much better about it as we work with him daily, making no big deal out of it as it is a trust issue. King will need a turn out buddy that likes to play as much as he does, especially halter tag. Turn out is to be enjoyed with a friend just like him.
As a side note, his coat is not curly, his winter coat dried that way after a bath.
