This guy is a power house! If you are wanting to have fun and pull checks he is your guy. He is sound, hauls, easy keeper, stands for farrier and bathing. He doesn't require any tuning he is finished and just needs to stay in shape. My daughter runs him, however with his speed he would require an experienced rider. He knows his job and runs 2-D times! Nice GRADE 15 y/o gelding with a big motor and great price.
