Tremendous Endurance Prospect
In Professional training since March 2007
Started on trails June 2007
Enjoyed leading on the trail from the 1st day
Balanced fluid movement
Wyatt Earp is a straight Russian gelding. Bred for endurance, both his sire and dam were race-bred Arabians selected by the breeder for their potential to produce strong endurance horses.
He has balanced, fluid movement and is light on his feet. Even though he was just started under saddle this year, he already lifts his back, rounds his neck and comes onto the bit. Wyatt is agile, has a soft mouth and responds quickly to light cues. He will remain in training at our barn until sold, so he will continue to improve.
Watch his arena videos and you will see he has really nice natural gaits for dressage and sport horse classes. He also has the balanced conformation with strong hindquarters that are valued in showing Sport Horses. You could show him sport horse in-hand and intro / training level dressage this year and start him in limited distance endurance riding in 2008.
Wyatt is the first horse to come to you in the pasture and likes attention. He tries to do what his rider asks. His favorite thing though is riding on the trail. He comes back from his trail rides with a happy look on his face and a soft eye. He clips, bathes, cross ties and stands for the farrier. He has also been hauled with other horses in a slant load trailer several times. He knows voice commands for walk, trot, canter, whoa, back, reverse (in the round pen) and pick up (for his feet). Because he is a young horse with a lot of potential he is best suited for a good rider that is comfortable and confident with a green horse that has been started correctly and enjoys bringing a young horse to their full potential.
