Monte Carlo is a very special 11 year old, 16.1 hand 1300lbs Friesian cross gelding. This horse is beautiful inside and out, a true gentle giant! He has a calm demeanor and impeccable manners both on the ground and under saddle. Monte goes Western or English and has the class and style to be a showstopper in the arena. Riders will appreciate how easy he is to maneuver as he is nicely trained and responsive to hand and leg signals. He has a good stop and back up, operates his body and rib cage well to side pass and leg yield, is easy to turn on the forehand, moves his shoulders, crosses over himself beautifully and will pivot on a hind foot to do a correct turnaround. His mouth is soft and his head and neck supple, just pick up on the reins to have him pick up a nice soft feel. He has smooth gaits, easy transitions and always picks up his leads. We have also ridden Monte all over outside in the steep Arizona backcountry encountering everything from cattle and deer to hikers and bicyclists all of which he handled perfectly. Very easy keeper, gets along well with other horses, does well stalled and is easy to catch in turnout. I could go on all day about how nice this big sweet boy is, he is the total package and surely what most would consider a true Dream Horse! 100% Sound, Vet Checks welcome at buyers expense. Sold!
