2016 14.1h 7 year old pintaloosa draft cross (spotted draft/appaloosa)
We introduced Baxter to hunting correctly late summer 2023 by taking him on houndwalks where he never batted an eye. He has been hunting 2nd and 3rd flight with Bedford Hunt during early season and plan to continue to hunt him until he finds his forever home.
Baxter is a very stout 1,100 lb who can be ridden english or western by children and adults, as he takes up a lot of leg and can carry larger riders. He loves to trail ride alone or in a group and will lead or follow, crosses bridges, water, trappy conditions, carefully walks over logs (will also jump them if asked), also will not get upset if horses pass him or leave him behind. Baxter is the same on and off property as we have taken him on to multiple hunter paces, a day long trail ride at James River State Park where we stood tied to a tree during lunch, and an obstacle challenge clinic.
In the arena he will walk, trot and canter and has jumped up to 2’3 with ease. More of a kick ride, but has his own motor once he’s in gear. Baxter has been used for beginner and intermediate riding lessons, but we believe he would love to have his own person or family. His training will continue until he finds his place. Best suited for an advanced beginner and up as he started late and is still green.
