Arie is a 16.0-16.1 hand, bright bay gelding. He is 6 years old, and has a great personality. I used to gallop him as a racehorse and he was always a blast to ride, never heavy in your hands and listened very well. He is a lovely mover and jumper, with a floaty trot and rocking horse canter. A few years ago he sustained two tendon injuries, he had surgery on both of them. He was given a very careful rehab and has come back 100%. He has had no heat or swelling in them for over a year and a half. His previous owner, (a friend of mine, and his previous trainer), gave him to someone who was interested in foxhunting him, apparently he didn't like hunting too much and would prefer a different job. Currently he is being ridden by a 15 yo girl who is having a great time on him, playing in the woods and jumping x-c jumps.
I think he would love to do dressage, low-level eventing, H/J...really anything you wanted to do with him. Arie would be perfect for a good junior or intermediate level AA. He lives out full-time, and has his own blankets that would go to his new home with him. He has been loved and treated very well his whole life, and is very sweet and charismatic. He needs to find his "forever" home ASAP.
Please call if you're interested...sorry no pics, just come and see him! Arie is located in Southern Pines, NC.
