8 yr old handsome 16.1 grey Thoroughbred gelding, tattooed but never raced. Loki is green on the flat but WTC around quietly and is learning about proper contact, he has a nice soft mouth and will go into a lovely headset. He has a lot of potential for some great flatwork with his huge shoulder and nicely balanced build, just needs time to develop more strength. However, put some jumps in front of this guy and even with limited jumping experience, he knows exactly what to do! He is very calm but keen and brave, with great natural form and plenty of scope, he will jump anything you point him at. Currently easily cruising around 2’6”- 2'9" courses. With continued consistent experience over the winter, I have no doubt he’ll be doing 3ft courses easily and confidently in no time. He is starting to offer nice lead changes and will have them perfected in no time! Put some miles on this guy and the sky is the limit- I think his ideal job would be a 2’6”-3’ hunter, but he’d also be happy to play around in jumpers or lower level evening as well. He can take a joke and doesn't hold grudges. With just a bit more experience, this horse will be a wonderful schoolmaster type to pack an inexperienced rider safely around a course. He hacks out around the property and on trails in a group like a pro, or nicely alone with a confident rider.
Loki is very brave and calm under saddle but is still a bit green, so he would do best with an intermediate AA or a teen in a good program, but would also be a fun project for a professional to develop. He would also make a wonderful future school horse, as he knows he job, has a great brain, and is very forgiving under saddle. He is an easy keeper for a TB and is fine living inside or out- he is low in the pecking order though so probably wouldn't do well in a large or particularly fractious herd. He can be comfortable barefoot, but prefers front shoes when in work.
Loki is an incredibly sweet horse that will try his heart out and really bonds with his rider. He's the type of horse that wants to follow you home, crawl in your lap, and be read bedtime stories while sipping hot cocoa. He's willing to settle for plenty of love and treats at a nice barn though. Good home a must.
