Blue came to Safe Harbor after his owner passed away. He is a wonderful gaited gelding, broke to ride and very well mannered. Blue is incredible under saddle, and was likely shown in the past. He collects into a beautiful lope anytime he is asked, stands for mount and dismount with perfect manners, takes the bit without fussing at all. He moves beautifully and gracefully in all speeds, and fully understands walk, trot, and canter. He is better with direct reign than neck reign,but does have a firm understanding of seat and leg pressure–he just definitely was trained more to move from the head, and collects and conforms with direction.
Blue is trail ready and saddle club ready. His adoption fee is $800, but he is truly ready to go. Intermediate riders may be more comfortable with Blue simply because of his size. This is a very big horse–not for the timid. If you are looking for a powerful companion, just saddle up and ride off into a beautiful sunset with Blue.
