Tod has done paper many chases and absolutely loved them. His movement is exceptional! He would be an amazing eventer! He never fails to impress me. Tod will make someone a lovely show mount. He leads, loads, and ties perfect. He rides in or out of the ring. On trails he will lead or follow, if another horse is nervous about going through water, rocks, woods, he will be the first to walk ahead and lead them through it. Tod stands for the vet and carrier with no issues. He rides in a snaffle bit. Tod would be amazing for speed events too. He turns on a dime when asked, he has stand to canter and walk to canter transitions. Tod is exposed to dogs, all farm machinery, cattle, ponies, tractors, children, and more. He is good with mares and geldings. He is the bottom of the totem pole in the field. He does not boss around any of my other horses nor has he ever, he is great with the minis as well. He has no kick, bite, buck, rear, or bolt in him. He will take someone far.
