EXPERIENCE & TRAINING – High
Five is just starting his under-saddle work after in-hand
and longeing work. He has a kind disposition and is very
brave and trusting. He is experienced at standing in cross-ties,
clipping, bathing, and riding in the trailer. He is very
quiet in-hand and is currently walk-trot-cantering under
saddle as well as skipping over some cross-rails and jumping
some 2'3" verticals and oxers.

CONFORMATION & MOVEMENT – High
Five is heavily boned, yet elegant, with plenty of shoulder and
a lengthy neck. He has solid, blemish-free legs and
is a big mover though he is not strong; in fact he is very quiet.
His facial expressions are full of curiousity. High Five loves
attention; he eagerly approaches people at his stall front, in
the pasture, and is eager to please in his training. He has a
big, airy trot and a lofty canter with two easy leads.
HISTORY – I adopted High
he was just two weeks old. He
was bucket raised for seven months, making him exceptionally
was a nurse-mare foal, which means that he was taken from
his mother just a few days after birth. High Five was only born
so that his mother would lactate and thus have the ability to
care for another, "more valuable", foal.
POTENTIAL – High
will make a lovely dressage, foxhunter/hunter, or equitation
prospect. He is a nice young horse that could really go anywhere,
best perform and progress under the guidance of an Advanced
Walk, Trot, Canter Level Rider or greater.
SPECIFICS – full cheek waterford
or snaffle, regular bridle with standing martingale, a regular
tree saddle with a 52" girth,
and an 80" blanket.
VETERINARY & SOUNDNESS – He
has not been hurt, lame, or ill in his life.
Price subject to increase
with training and show experience/ success.
