Rockstar Temper “Rocky” is the perfect combination of performance and personality. Tall, athletic, and a fluid mover, with focused training Rocky will turn heads in the show ring. While he will gait under saddle, he prefers to trot — and his trot is big! Rocky frequently canters at liberty out in the pasture, and his canter is natural and fluid. While he has not been asked to canter under saddle yet, he should transition to 3 gaits easily.
Rocky would also make a fantastic trail partner. With his easygoing, unflappable, go-anywhere temperament, he will tackle trail miles and obstacles in stride. Since his adoption, he has been ridden primarily by a 12-year-old girl, and has proven himself to be gentle, reliable, and steady.
Rocky has been healthy and injury-free since his adoption. He has excellent feet and has not required shoes — regular trims have been enough to keep his feet in sound condition.
Rocky has a personality as big as he is tall — this sweet boy is playful, comical, and affectionate. He is easy to handle on the ground, loves to be groomed, and is everybody’s best friend. He is quiet in his stall, but loves his pasture turnout — always ready to goad his pasture mates into a game of tag. Rocky has been a wonderful addition to our family — he is being rehomed only because circumstances force us to downsize.
