This handsome 7-year old, 14.1 hh Arabian gelding joins us for training from Gerda’s Equine Rescue (GER) in Vermont. Rescued from a killpen last winter, Rafiq was initially skittish but has since become friendly and curious about people. This leggy boy has some filling out to do, but is believed to be a clean slate ready to begin his training.
After several months getting to know Raf, we can report that he is as sweet and smart as they come. He has been ponied out on the trails, connects beautifully during roundpen or liberty work, and lunges well. Raf long lines nicely and is busy learning to ground drive, along with comfortably carrying a saddle and bridle. He stands for bathing, vet, and the farrier, and is an easy keeper who gets along wonderfully with everyone. We are thrilled to help this special boy further his education, and will be lightly starting him under saddle shortly if he isn’t snapped up before then.
