    Harley.com – That’s his name!  He is a big, beautiful, 15.1 black gelding – 9 years old – Reg. TW!  Awesome pedigree!  Harley came to us from a friend that lives about ten miles from us.  Tom has taken Harley on some really difficult trail rides!   His family loves to trail ride.  They go sometimes through the week after work, as well as, weekends!    They have on occasion taken Harley to a few local fun shows and did really well with him with winning 2 blue ribbons showing against several horses..   But they mostly enjoyed Harley for pleasure riding.     —————————————————————————-Harley is very affectionate…..very sweet!   He loves attention and is very much a people horse.  He is a follower – you walk, he walks, you stop, he stops! — Harley is funny…..so curious!  Into everything type of horse!  The only negative behavior we have found is that he will not stand AND WAIT  a LONG PERIOD OF TIME  when mounting—“like we love our horses to do”.    So  because of this, he will be sold to an experienced rider instead of our Special Needs or timid riders. When trail riding, he will stop on voice command….stand and wait———-He is awesome with doing this!! When you are out riding Harley?….he is so very patient!  He will stop/stand/and wait usually until you tell him to move!!!!!!  He mounts from the ground or mounting block and does stand still……He has come a long way!   Harley used to stand until you got seated in the saddle, adjust your stirrups and then he just walked (NOT FAST…slow walk-off).   “We have really worked with him  on this – and he is doing awesome!!”   -Every week he gets better with patience when standing after he is mounted. —————————  The only reason we have him for Experienced Riders is because he is 15.1 —– and, he doesn’t stand as long.    Both being very intimidating to some riders.  We have horses here available for Special Needs Children or Adults that will stop, stand and wait —-for an hour —-just whatever you ask of them —– “until” you tell them to move.   They are also smaller.  This is a very important trait for the above type riders.   Harley’s temperament is truly  VERY obedient!  Very responsive to voice command! —-He absolutely stops on voice command!! Harley is easy to clip, shoe, – walks on the trailer – and loves his baths!!  He is playful with the water hose,…..drinks from the hose,…….and is just really great with all things including fly spray – no stall issues – runs great with the other horses – (he is SO sweet  and humble in the pasture!!) —- And a big loving pet that is at the gate as soon as he sees us out there!!!   He will sometimes neigh to get our attention if we don’t go toward him.   ———————————— Harley’s Shoes:    The videos we took prior to September 1 —-are videos with Harley wearing heavy shoes.   He is awesomes with these if one wants to do both pleasure ride and show.   They make his gait more stylish.——–   As of 9-2-15 – Harley now has light weight trail shoes with drilltex on them for dangerous trails.   As with all of our horses, they do have drilltex or bourne for safety…….We took a couple of videos last night (9-2) —-and he is amazing with just the trail shoe!!!!!——————-We downloaded videos with the light shoes on youtube.com.  And top photo on this page is with light shoes.——- With his long stride, he doesn’t have to be fast to cover ground, but he does have a faster gait when called on.  He will come right back down to a slow walk without hesitation!! —And he has a really nice smooth ride!!!!!————-  He rides out alone or with a group.   Harley is OK with other horses riding off ahead.   He will lead, ride middle, or back.  He will lead into difficult areas – over bridges, thru tunnels (see videos) —-and trails!     Harley has a lot of head sense – he listens and responds.    He has been ridden in creeks, woods – lots of wildlife – very difficult areas.   He is a wonderful trail horse and if you like to occasionally go to a local show,….he is ready for that, too!!   And as you can see in both videos with the heavy shoes and the light weight shoes ——He can do both!!————–He is very much traffic broke!  - as well as “our huge 100 lb barking dog broke”—-and several dogs nipping at the hills back in the rental park – broke!   We have subjected him to all kinds of farm equipment when working ——and as with every horse – tried everything!!  to make him spook.  He is very much non-spook!  This horse has been ridden a lot of miles in many different places over the years!!  Not much he has not seen!!!  He is an awesome trail horse!   And they don’t come any more loving that sweet Harley………. 9-14-15 – I just downloaded a movie on youtube of Abigail riding Harley, Kristen riding Angel II on a trail ride at Shakertown, Harrodsburg, Ky. – last weekend!  The girls said he was amazing!  He is very much non-spook!!  No quick movements – just calm, easy moving.   There is a photo of him in a belly deep creek and photos and videos of that trail ride as well as here at home in that movie.
