Youthful Spirit, aka “Phil” or lovingly referred to as “Philly Cheesesteak” in the barn, is an adorable, forward moving 12 year old! You would never guess he is 12 by his body, brain, and enthusiasm for wanting to work! He is a love bucket in is stall, always welcoming a head rub with his cute little lip that hangs down after a full day or night of turnout! Youthful Spirit came back to us after 4 years of a dressage career, as the adopters life changed! He is loving the “long and low” life style now and has been a pleasant addition to our program! Under saddle Phil will need a quiet, advanced rider, as he can be sensitive in the mouth. He will need someone who understands that your questions come from your seat and leg! He loves to learn, he thinks he knows it all and sometimes forgets he doesn’t! When asked to do something he hasn’t been shown before he does it willingly once he understands it! We have a video of him over his first crossrail! We think he would be a fantastic jumper or eventer! He is currently going in a rubber snaffle, stands like a champ at the mounting block, and loves to be ridden outside! Turnout is a must for this handsome boy as he loves to explore and socialize!
