“Viktor” is still actively in search of his new Riding or driving partner. He is a stoic 17 hand, 5 year old Friesian/Percheron gelding (no papers). Though he is well versed and traveled, he is looking for a rider who appreciates a quiet but forward thinking and responsive ride that wants a relationship with their horse. It might take five minutes to get to know him
the first ride, but once that is established he will give you the world. Yes he will take care of your grandma - if she is a competent, quiet rider. He is not suitable to “throw the husband on”, if hubby has only ridden on those few family vacations. He is a willing worker, has a strong desire to please and not a mean bone in his body - but does not understand death grips with the legs, or being smacked in the face. This boy is LIGHT as a feather in the bridle (yes, he rides and drives in just a snaffle) and his sides are that of a Horse who doesn’t need to be asked to do something twice. He is not hot, he will happily stand around after cantering to your hearts content - but he will not hesitate to move on when asked. He is large enough for a taller rider but kind enough for a small lady to ride (im 5’4” and he NEVER takes advantage of his size). He has impeccable manners, he quietly stands in the barn, for mounting, clipping, bathing, farrier, etc. anyone could handle him on the ground - and he won’t get upset with the kids running around him either. He is kind and gentle as they come.
Viktor truly does it all. He will ride in the arena, he will go down the trail or hitch him up and take him for a drive! The possibilities for him are absolutely endless. His attitude, movement and athleticism set him up for success in nearly any discipline. In the arena he is light, balanced and responsive. He naturally holds himself in a frame and is happy to put on his dancing shoes to entertain the dressage rider. He is equally apt to jump, and is extremely game. Though green he has a natural sense of finding his spot and has an easy jump that makes everything seem like no big deal! Though he has a ground covering stride, he never feels out of control or “quick”. He is extremely comfortable as well.
Out on the trail he’s as steady as they come. When going out in questionable company he is the go to guy. He trailers to new places and offloads like he has lived there a lifetime. NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING scares him. Bridges, creeks, dogs, bikes etc. he does not care. Company is irrelevant to him, he is as independent as they could come and doesn’t care if the others are loosing their cool. He continues on with his life and doesn’t let outside factors upset him. Viktor will lead, follow and happily wonder off without anyone else. He is 100% traffic safe. He is just as happy to go for a relaxing walk as he is to go for a more upbeat ride. Whatever you want, is what he wants to do.
Viktor is truly a unicorn but is looking for a very specific rider who wants a sports car with a bulletproof insurance policy.
He has no vices, issues and is 100% sound. He would love to fox hunt, play in the sandbox, trail ride, paper chase or even event!
He is priced at $15,000 however finding a rider who is suitable and appreciates him for the gem he is is of utmost importance. (This doesn’t mean I will give him away, it means I will entertain reasonable offers from qualified riders).
If you think you might be the right fit for Viktor, give me a call. I’d love to chat about him and discuss suitability (he is my favorite, after all, and will only go to the best of homes!). He is not suitable for the beginner under any circumstances. He has absolutely ZERO naughty tricks, he will not buck he will not spook and he will not bolt. But he will move on when you tell him to (even if you don’t realize that’s exactly what you’re doing). It is not fair to him to be repeatedly confused by unclear aids of the uneducated rider - as he is young and extremely intelligent he is still learning (for better or worse, that’s in the riders hands!). He does not require a rocket scientist in the irons, he really is quite sensible. He just needs someone who can ride a horse with buttons that don’t need to be pushed five times and given a little spur to be activated.
