Horse Description: This handsome guy came to DEFHR in November 2016 and having made a smooth and full recovery, he started his evaluation process while in off-site training with one of DEFHR's volunteer trainers. He was backed by Stuart Rybak of Rybak Horsemanship and continued his training off-site. He has worked on lunging, backing, moving the forequarters and hindquarters. He ties, bathes, self-loads and stands well for the farrier and vet. He is currently going under saddle walk/trot and has been ridden primarily western. He has a smooth jog and he stops on a dime! He has a calm demeanor and a confidence about him that has shown through when introduced to scary tarps or flags! With further training, this guy is going to be a great partner for someone that wants a versatile guy!
