Everyone is instantly drawn to his adorable face and Quarter horse type body! Upon meeting Shiner you see the innocent little boy that he is, but the longer you are around him the more he lets you see the fun and somewhat sassy side of his personality. He can be a toddler when it comes to washing his face or applying the horse eating fly spray as he slowly backs away from it like we don’t notice him leaving, but then he can turn right around and be business-like under saddle. Life of a 4 year old OTTB gelding is full of contradictions. He is a bit lazy, so more of a push ride, but he is getting better about keeping a pace on his own. Shiner will be suitable for an intermediate level rider for flat work only. So far he has been very curious while riding out of the ring and has more energy in his step as he takes it all in. Shiner can be a pest to his turn out buddy who is very tolerant, so he would do best with another gelding who also likes to play. He has no vices.
