More Information

Been there, done a lot.

Blue is a 15-2 hand unregistered pinto gelding looking for a new home where he can still have a job to do, but it’s time for him to take it a little easier now that he is 23 years old. Blue will take care of you on the trail and has been fox hunted in the second field. He has competed Training Level dressage, hunter paces and is honest over fences. He has a big walk and expressive eye-catching trot. He could teach the right intermediate amateur a lot. He loads and hauls well, ties, and is good for the blacksmith.

Blue will need to go into the right environment because of some separation anxiety triggers.

  • Needs a turn out friend (preferably female)
  • He cant be left in a stall alone
  • If you haul somewhere with a buddy, he will not leave his buddy. He  hacks just fine alone in his home territory and around the farm.  Hauled alone to a show, he is good in a ring, but not cross country.

Dusty hay and a dusty barn will trigger a warm-up cough.

Will need front shoes on hard rocky ground.

He will have to go to someone in the Central Ohio area as I want to be sure he is well cared for and has lots of turn out.  We will require a return agreement as we do not want him sold where he will go to a bad place.

This YouTube video was taken on April 20. He had only been ridden once in the past 6 weeks (we were in NC). I did not do more than one minute warm up before starting. I will say he was a little more enthusiastic than normal.

You can also see Blue in the Hunt video training video where he leads the group through some foxhunting basics. Skip the first quarter of the video, unless you find foxhunting interesting.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PmvcmZKovc.

If you think Blue might work for you, give us a call to discuss further. Below are a couple more pictures.
