This Andalusian cross gelding is as stunning as he is kind and intelligent. Andy is the go-to horse every time we head to the mountains; his smooth ground covering walk, brave attitude and willingness to go through or over anything you point him at always make him a top pick. Andy is game for any task; regardless of what it is, you can bet he'll give you 100% of his heart and try every time even if it's his first attempt at it. He's gone fox hunting, done a hunter pace, jumped cross county courses, ran at omoksees and playdays, won obstacle challenges and trail classes, pulled kid-filled sleds and skiers through knee-deep snow, and earned his keep by giving lessons to intermediate and advanced kid riders. He's traffic safe and even been ridden to the bar! He's been on many camping trips and has tons of trail miles under his belt, confidently rides out alone or is happy to lead or follow the group. He loads and hauls flawlessly, hobbles, high-lines, respects a single strand hotwire, and is a low maintenance traveler. He's started on cattle, is comfortable with ropes, lightly patterned on barrels, ran drill and packed flags, been ridden English and jumped. Andy is a pro at opening and closing gates, slides over to pick his rider up off of a stump or stool, sidepasses, pivots on both ends, has excellent hip and shoulder control, a great stop, back and a one hand neck rein. Even though he excels outside, he has all of the fancy buttons you could ask for in arena work, including flying lead changes and going bridleless. This horse is very light and soft and works well off of seat and leg, no need to kick, yank or peddle. To add icing to the cake, this gelding is FANCY, straight legged and sound with excellent hard black feet and an outstanding mind. The best part is you don't need a ladder to climb up on him! Everywhere he goes he's always getting noticed and receiving compliments. Andy has a fantastic foundation and an extensive resume, but his future potential is endless. Don't hesitate to call, we're happy tell you more about him! Check out our website for more pictures, videos and updates on Andy!
