- Sir Duke is as regal as his name would suggest! This dreamboat gelding is an absolute pleasure to ride and loves to work. He can be nervous his first few days in a new place but once he settles in, Duke is a pretty easy going guy and is definitely a boys boy. His favorite activities include rolling in as much mud as possible, and playing silly games with his three friends. Duke gets along well with other horses and is currently last-in-command among his group. On the ground, Duke leads well going in and out although he can sometimes be a little looky at new objects and sounds. He does not have any stall vices.
Under saddle Duke focuses very well and pays attention to what his rider is asking when you keep him engaged. Duke naturally likes to bow his neck and carry himself. He has three beautiful gaits that are almost enchanting to watch. As he learns to stretch a little more he is really going to be impressive! He does get nervous with loud noises such as nail guns but works through it. Duke is suitable for all disciplines with an intermediate rider.
