Mattonthechooch is a fun horse to ride. At 15.2hh he is a convenient size to mount from the ground. He will gait or trot under saddle and we can see him being a good horse to ride around the farm, down the trails or even at the horse shows. He doesn’t have limitations. He gets along well with other horses during turnout and really enjoys eating (maybe a little too much, he tends to get very possessive of his grain and hay during feeding time). He’s not dominant in the herd hierarchy so has had to learn to stand up for himself at feeding time. He requires a confident, dominant rider to be his leader and is best suited for an adopter that will put him into a consistent riding program.
He stands to be mounted and dismounted, crossties, bathes and is perfect for the farrier. Matt does get claustrophic when he ships, he needs to ship in a box stall, or a ‘stall and a half’ in a slant load trailer.
