Avi is a 2011 chestnut and white grade paint. This 14.2hh gelding is offered for sale at $6500 (negotiable to right home). He has 3 fantastic gaits and has been in a balancing and topline building exercise program since last fall. Avi pays close attention to seat and leg aids. He is understanding lateral cues for leg yeild and we are starting to work on controlling the shoulder.
This gelding is very forward, and soft in the contact. He has good conformation, beautiful feet, and during his dental the vet said he has a “nice mouth.” After a warm-up he seeks contact in the bit consistently at the walk, and is looking for contact at the trot and canter. Despite his crabby ears, I have found that he actually loves work and tries hard for me. He greets me when I come to the gate and follows me around the barn yard. He is relatively unflappable hacking on the trail, and very sure footed. Crosses water, bridges, banks, rides well alone.
We took him to a hunter pace recently and discovered his natural talent for jumping. He is just as brave and surefooted going over jumps as he is out on the trail. He obviously was in his element, there is no stop in this guy. I highly recommend him as a foxhunter, jumper, or eventer. If he had a little more size on him, I would keep him for an event prospect.
We are going to be taking him to a few local schooling shows. Look for us out and about. I will happily give a few lessons to introduce you to him, he is a great little mount, with a fun personality.
As you can see, Avi needs someone his size. Come and meet this fun pony – email Amanda@allisoncreekfarm.com or call 706/338.1358.
