Korbin reportedly had quite the determined work ethic at the track and quitting was not in his vocabulary. That work ethic is still in place and he was sure that he was not supposed to be cantering so slowly in the video because that is not how you win the race, as evident in him trying to tell the rider “lets go” in the video. Korbin did listen though as this was his first time cantering and he rated his canter as asked. Korbin is better suited right now for an experienced adult because as much as he is quickly learning his way through his new life, he has a quirky personality not suited for children. He is learning to trust, but it takes some finesse right now to know when to baby him and when to stand up to him and he seems to lean towards needing one person. He definitely likes people and is well behaved when handling and riding him, but his stall is his quiet place and he can be protective of his space.
As his pedigree can attest, Korbin is a classy gelding and he would make a nice dressage prospect as he has a good brain and nice movement. He is very mature and tolerant of his pesky turn out buddy, never getting after the other gelding for being too rough at times. Korbin is a been there, done that gelding that likes his turn out time and does best with a routine that he can depend on. He has no vices.
