"Jack" is a 5 year old Haflinger gelding standing 14.3 hands high. Jack acts like a puppy, he is very in- your- pocket and loves attention. Jack is quiet and easy going.
In the barn, Jack is a doll baby. He will stand tied all day, stands to be groomed, bathed, he stands for the farrier, stands to be tacked and mounted. This cute little guy wants everyone to be his friend, he is happy to be turned out in a mixed heard or in a stall.
Under saddle, Jack is suited for nearly any level rider. He has three steady Eddie gaits with an easy stop and back. Jack will hack out English or western. He will head out on a trail alone or in a group. He is always happy to lead or follow. Jack is not bothered by traffic, deer, squirrels, rabbits etc. His only flaw is mounting and dismounting as he gets mercy seeing you on his sides but doesn't react aggressively in any way.
Under harness, Jack is broke to all farm machinery. He stands to be harnessed and hooked. This guy will walk off nicely and work all day if you ask him to.
