Basalt

Winning Bid: $14,500.00

Basalt is a 5yo 16.2HH Friesian/Dutch Harness Horse cross and his sire is a registered Friesian stallion. I purchased Basalt from the Amish because he was a bit too goofy and low energy for them. Basalt is way more whoa than go both on the ground and under-saddle. He enjoys meeting all people, particularly babies and other animals! Basalt is unbelievably gentle and has an incredibly quiet disposition, everybody is begging me to keep him because of his old-soul personality and kindness! Basalt is target trained to investigate new things to instill confidence and as a result, he is extremely curious and doesn’t spook easily. If he does spook, he just stops and flinches before checking it out so make sure you have a cookie ready to reward his bravery! Basalt knows how to park at the mounting block and waits for cookie tax before beginning a ride. He halts on a dime at the mention of “ho” or with just a gentle squeeze of the thighs. His time under-saddle is limited but he is w/t reliably and enjoys pole work. Basalt is still building muscle and learning how to balance so his canter under-saddle is not established yet but he is getting stronger every day with a willing attitude. Basalt loves to trail ride by himself in a rope halter and never turns for home, he usually passes it! He patiently lets cars go by while riding but will happily entertain chats with the neighbors from their driver’s window too. Basalt has impeccable ground manners, never crowding and moves off rope halter pressure along with verbal cues. Basalt loads/trailers quietly and stands for the farrier politely. He is barefoot with strong hooves and no need for shoes/maintenance. He is trained to lift all 4 hooves lightly so even a little kid could hold his legs up. He also loves his winter blanket and a thorough grooming! He currently lives with goats and adores them, he’s also low on the totem pole with horses and is familiar with cows, hence his lightly chewed tail (which is growing back quickly!). Basalt will excel in a home with livestock as friends or with horses, he isn’t picky! He’s fully up to date on vaccines and dental, with records to show upon request or purchase. Basalt has no limitations and is ready to be finished your way! P.S: He has an adorable mustache. Call with any questions Ellie LeMieux 407-490-8612. Located in Oviedo, FL.
