Calm and talented Hunter
Spuyten Duyvil has a gorgeous and slow loping canter, he collects beautifully and is talented in jumping. Safe enough for a beginner working with a trainer, or an older person who needs a sane minded horse to enjoy. More woah than go, but is very responsive for riders who are confident and demand more. Loves to be ridden bareback in a halter, jumped in the HITS hunter ring, in which he got fourth out of twelve in the 2'6 baby greens. Very calm, big bodied and gorgeous gelding. Works so hard to please, trailers well, nice with other horses, stands for shoer, veterinarian, very friendly all around pleasant and cute horse. The only thing we can fault him on are the bumps on his legs from getting screws as a baby, none of which have bothered him or limited him in any way. He also has a slightly cloudy left eye, but this similarly does not limit him. He is a pleasure to work with and quite the brave and stoic soul.
