Harley - $6,000
Year of Birth: 2010
Harley is a PERFECT project for a professional, strong AA, or talented junior! A 'loud' black/white 2010 Trakehner X gelding, he is compact and quick to learn. He is easily trainable a through at LEAST 3rd level and could be a super resale project for someone looking for a smaller investment.
Though still green in many ways, Harley is lesson (for kids with basic steering and stop/go knowledge) and AA friendly once he understands something, so his perfect home would take the time to train him up the levels and shape him into the perfect AA packer. He’s sensitive to the aids in a way that makes him try new things and find solutions quickly under the right rider and a blast to work with.
After being broke last summer, Harley spent the late summer and fall going on trail rides and doing some w/t arena work. He began cantering late fall and is now playing with lengthenings, lateral work, and even trying some changes - but mostly is focusing on establishing connection to the bridle in preparation to debut training level this month.
Harley has jumped through 2’, is fun and easy to gallop around the track or through a field, stands quietly to be tacked and bathed, and loads very easily! He still requires a cocktail to be clipped (courtesy of being virtually unhandled until we picked him up a year ago) and can be dominant/extra playful in the field but is fine with both mares and geldings. He is UTD on everything and has always been barefoot.
