Foundation bred, athletic and pretty trail and sport horse. Brains, Beauty and Breeding all in one package.
Oakie is a Western Dressage prospect deluxe. He comes from the Confetti Farms lines of Sporthorse Foundation Appaloosas, and it shows in his movement - he has true open show potential for dressage, and even has a cute jump! He is soft in the bosal, and is building a great foundation of skill in the arena. He went to his first Western Dressage show 8/14 and marked a 67.913%, with an 8.5 on his free walk and an 8.0 collective mark for gaits. Video of his test is below.
Oakie has a ton of bone, awesome barefoot hooves, and an unflappable personality that combineto make him a rockstar trail horse. He is street and traffic safe, will walk right up to the ice cream truck window for you to grab a snack, and gamely handles technical trail riding. He will go out by himself or with company, doesn't care if he leads or follows. He crosses water, jumps logs, and isn't worried about running horses, barking dogs, or screaming children. With more miles and exposure, he could be a stellar Trail Trial or EXCA competitor.
Oakie is sweet, well mannered, and willing. His sire is a using ranch horse, and dam is still a broodmare at Confetti Farms. He ties, clips, trailers, stands for the farrier, and has impeccable ground manners.
And you get flashy color on top! This guy turns heads everywhere he goes.
