BBA Elan Darkknight is a perfect gentleman at all times. He also is a true black with a gorgeous thick long mane, forelock and tail. His owner raised him from a 2 yr old, had him professionally trained at 3 by Blake Krohn, a nationally known Arabian show trainer, and has been riding him on the trails ever since. He was so sweet and gentle when being put under saddle that Blake offered to buy him to keep as a lesson horse. Instead, Elan spent a few years being the perfect child’s horse – even standing still while their son took a running leap to mount from the rear, cowboy-movie style. After their son left home, he became Mom’s trusted trail horse, which he loves. She has ridden him all over Texas and in the rugged hilly terrain in Arkansas. He is unafraid of creek crossings, bridges, and other common trail obstacles. When startled, he simply stops still, no jumping to the side or other spooky behavior. He neck reins easily, but can also be ridden English with contact on the bit. He is being offered for sale because his owners have switched to gaited Rocky Mountain horses. Elan has most recently been used as their “guest horse” for beginning riders and would make a beautiful, safe horse for someone that wants a good solid trail horse, that doesn’t spook and takes care of his rider. Elan is used to being pampered and will only go to a very good home where he can receive the same type of love and care he now has at home.
