Goodboycharlie is a striking, kinda 9 year old 16.3h Registered TB gelding. He was raced 24 times, won 5 and come in second and third many times. He had 2 owners previous to me, who took advantage of his speed and he was branded by a barrel racer. Prior to that he was introduced to jumps and never refused. Ive been told he has jumped up to 3’by his former even term who “claimed” him and wanted to enter the RRP. Then he was sold to a barrel racer who put her initials on him (literally).
I’ve owned him just under 2 years. My trainer and I have gained his trust and confidence and have enjoyed seeing his personality change from being nervous to being a kind big puppy dog who perks up whenever you call his name. I've labeled him a 6 for temperament since he has plenty of impulsion under saddle.
He’s a very smart and social horse and loves to spend time with people, loves be groomed, looooves to have his face washed! He loves to work - is forward without having ever taken off with me or bolted. Charlie has excellent ground manners and is as easy as can be tacking him up. He loves to be engaged with people and he also likes to explore his lead rope and my clothes with his mouth. I am patient and remind him that he shouldn’t chew on his lead rope and my clothes.
He loves to go to work and is not a spooky horse, and in this video the weather was coming in, and the landscapers were weed whacking and I felt completely comfortable riding him for this video, even though this is only the second time I’ve had time to ride him in the last 6 months!
In addition to his wonderful personality, gaits are quite comfortable. You can see in this video my balance and position may not be my best since I haven’t been riding in the last 6 months, but Charlie is still giving me his best. He has been given an excellent dressage foundation by a student of Karen Rohlf, Shawna Lewis. Charlie is ready to have consistent
work from someone who loves to ride in an arena or a huge field field on a loose rein.
Charlie is offered to a new home because I’ve faced the difficult decision that my 2 businesses and personal life will continue to keep me from giving him the kind of relationship and exercise that he craves. I’m a professional saddle fitter and body worker, and made the investment in designing a dressage saddle for Charlie, that has only been used a handful of times. This brand new saddle is available for a fair price below new.
I will only let this precious horse go to a suitable, loving home. I really care about Charlie and will put a first right of refusal in his bill of sale.
I look forward to meeting you and seeing if he is the special partner you’ve been looking for.
