Great amateur experience and ready to finish for the Jr/AO Jumpers, Talent Search, &/or 3’6” equitation. Honest and brave and tolerates mistakes well. Careful but not apprehensive, and strong but not overpowering. Lots of jump and scope and could potentially be a 1.40m horse. Show miles through 1.25m and lots of time living at home with his amateur owner.
