“Silas” is an 11 year old Friesian Sporthorse gelding with SIZE and LOOK. When I say size, I mean he is HUGE. Truly just shy of 17 hands.
This guy started his riding career in hopes to be used in medieval reenactments, which, in itself is a pretty cool resume builder. He been used as a ranch horse and knows his way out for a casual ride. He will ride off on a loose rein or collect up right in the bridle. He has seen a rope and calves, and would make one of the coolest cowboy horses around.
He is a BIG animated mover. The right person should take this guy into a 3 day setting and let him soar in the dressage ring.
He rides inside the arena, with a bridle or even WITHOUT one! He has been loped out in the field, or down the road. We have put him through our wringer: cats, dogs, machinery, tarps, balls, cattle, and traffic. He has been down hills, crossed water, and ridden solo on the trail. He doesn’t have any bad habits: however, he is all work, and not much play. The worst thing he has done is snort his nostrils to call a bluff – all bark, and literally, no bite. If you’re looking for a horse to go all day, this is your one!
