Bruce is truly stunning! His conformation is balanced and strong and he holds himself beautifully. We have had him since he was a yearling, and he has always been friendly, easy to catch and well mannered. Bruce's dam is around 14 hands and his sire is 15 hands; he should finish off somewhere in between. Bruce has filled out really nice; he has good bone and body like his sire. He is sensible, a quick learner and he retains all of his lessons. Bruce has been hauled all around to different trails and arenas.
Bruce is no slouch. He is very engaged with his rider and his work. He always listens to his rider, even when he's feeling a bit spicy. Bruce doesn't buck, bolt or rear. He isn't a spooky horse, however he is no dead head. He will let you know if something is bothering him. Bruce doesn't hold any grudges, he gets over things quick and then continues on with the job. He will cross anything you put in front of him. He is sure footed and will lead or follow the group. I've climbed icy hills with him and he just dug in with his toes and took his time. He has a quick walk and a good canter.
We had an offer to prepare him for a very good client in the States, however as the winter progressed Steeve and I had to really think if Bruce was the kind of horse our client is looking for. Because Bruce is still young and fiery, we thought maybe he wasn't ready for what our client wanted him for. Bruce also needs more work on his gait, another reason why we thought he might not be ready for our client. Bruce is square and has zero pace to his gait. He has a solid flat walk; he tends to fox trot or hard trot when asked to run walk. This is something I will focus more on this spring with him. He has an excellent canter.
Please contact myself or Steeve if you would like to get to know Bruce better.
