Chasing Gold is a 16 1/2h 5 year old gelding who ran 25 times in search of gold. He did fairly well, placing 3rd or better in 10 of his 25 starts. He is not done yet though! He is a big bodied Quarter Horse type with huge haunches. He is a talkative character who loves to call out to passersby. He is one of the leaders in the field but is not really a dominant personality. He likes to find one other boy who is his buddy and will hang out with them the whole time. He is very well mannered to handle and stands well for the farrier.
Chasing Gold has really taken to trail riding!
Under saddle, he rides like a Quarter Horse as well. Most of the time he carries his head fairly low and level. Gold moves forward nicely off your leg and naturally reaches on to the bit. His canter is a bit awkward but he is learning to push from behind rather than flatten out. He has just started to walk and trot over poles. Gold is becoming a lot braver out on the trails by himself but he still prefers riding out with a buddy - who can blame him, it's more fun riding with a friend. He is good-natured and would happily work at the trot all day for his rider. He is suitable for at least an intermediate rider. He will be suitable for flatwork disciplines.
