"APPLE BUTTER FLH"
Pictures do not do this guy justice. He is gorgeous!
Stunning- 11 year old, foundation bred, 14.2 Haflinger Gelding with EXCELLENT bloodlines.
Prince is a registered 11 year old gelding. Please see copy of pedigree. His grand sire was the famous "Nobleman of Tudor Oaks".
Prince is a full of life, in your pocket horse with TONS of potential. He has an amazing, rich, dappled palomino color with a very white mane and tail. This guy turns heads everywhere he goes and just expresses a huge presence. He is fancy and knows it. Prince is the old school wide foundation build and you will get asked frequently if he is a stud due to his stature. He has no buck, kick, blow or rear in him. He wants to please his person. He is currently shod all the around and is good for the farrier with no stocks needed. We have not tried him barefoot due to the ground at "home" being in the mountains and rocky. He is a very easy keeper and easy to catch and be around. Prince would thrive in home where he will get used. He likes to work and prefers a quiet yet confident person.
Riding- Prince does know walk, trot and canter. He has a nice whoa and a gentle back. He does flex laterally nicely, better left than right, and does give easily at the poll. Prince has very wide withers. I am riding is a full QH bars saddle and I have to double pad it. Prince does yield to leg pressure but I would not say he neck reins but could with some practice. I am currently riding in a full cheek snaffle and he does fine. Prince does have some get up and go. He has not been educated on the proper speeds of the 3 gates yet. He did have a nice collected trot and extended it with only the slightest of encouragement. Trotting does seem to be his favorite speed and he is a floaty.Prince is easy to saddle and bridle.Best suited for a confident beginner with trainer or intermediate or better rider.
Driving- Prince does drive decent. He likes to trot and cover ground but will walk when asked. He is being driven in a straight bar and doing fine with it. Prince does respond ok to verbal cues. He has a nice forward movement and a floaty get you noticed trot. Best suited for intermediate driver as he is a forward moving horse. He prefers contact with his mouth while driving.
Pictured harness is available as well. Complete except hold backs and bit. Brand new except the few times he has worn it for pictures. $500
Prince is amazing equine athlete that needs direction. He has the potential to do anything with just a slight amount of training and polishing.
Ideally Prince is really looking for that forever home and to build a relationship with a special person. He will work his heart out for you just for the praise and a few cookies. Prince is currently being legged up in Nunn, Colorado. Please contact Heather set up and appointment to meet this special guy.
Prince would be an excellent addition to a show home. He will get you noticed in the ring.
Prince is being sold, no fault of his own. His owners are downsizing to their key group of horses.
Video of Prince riding and driving available upon request.
$6000 offers will be entertained to the right home.
