Description

Do you like piƱa coladas and getting caught in the rain? We’re not sure if Tuscan likes the former (he sure does love cocosoya oil though) but he definitely doesn’t mind the later! This tall, dark and handsome guy is a a total ham of a horse and loves long walks on the trail, or moonlit strolls to hand graze. He just loves being fussed over, and would love to be someone’s escape!

If you want a horse who will keep you young, this might be your guy! You would never know that this guy is six years old and had 37 starts on the track. Even with arthritis in his front ankles, he loves to stay active and he has lovely movement under saddle. While he needs to be reminded of his manners occasionally, he is a quick learner and has begun to develop a good sense of contact on the bit. He would do best with an advanced intermediate or higher level rider who can stay one step ahead of him and continue his progress. He will be limited to flat work only.

Tuscan is also a good team player and loves to go out with his buddies. He has been turned out with other geldings and loves very moment he gets to spend outdoors. He is neither a dominant nor a submissive horse, but rather likes to be somewhere in the middle, or hang out on his own.

 

Tuscan is eligible for the Pony Club Challenge and the RRP 2018 TB Makeover.
