Eli is a very personable fellow who will stand like a gentleman on the crossties all day for grooming and snuggles. He’s excellent for the vet and farrier and loads well too. Eli is well schooled in all three gaits, rides in a halter and clip ons or in a basic snaffle. he knows some basic leg yields and is starting to work on shoulder in / haunches in, but should remain on the flat only due to his confirmation an history. He is currently on Equinox daily and will benefit from remaining on it. 

 
Eli is best for an intermediate rider or a rider with a trainer, given a couple unique quirks: Eli can get very barn sour and herdmate sour, both in hand and under saddle, if not proactively managed. He will benefit from frequent schooling across a variety of terrains (fields, indoors, outdoors, and trails) and prefers to be kept in daily work. He should be turned out with other geldings only, and benefits from 24/7 turnout with a shed or an in & out.
