Trigger (Ballivor)

Gelding Standardbred

Trigger came into care as a rig, he was gelded successfully with no issues and has spent the last 5 years in care. He is broken to saddle, he has shown no nasty behaviors under saddle however due to being very green and uneducated under saddle he would definitely only be suitable to an experienced ridder to help bring out his best. Trigger is not suitable for a beginner and will only be rehomed to an experienced kind rider.
He has an established walk and an established trot. However, he has not yet got an established canter and would need educating in the canter. He requires a rider who will take him though the walk and trot and help gain his balance and confidence before working on his canter.
Trigger is a blank canvas and with the correct training he could happily go on to any chosen discipline.
On the ground Trigger has a lovely nature and is easy to do everything with, due to previously being rig has traits of a stallion so the correct paddock mates need to be considered or paddocking him alone. He also poo’s in the same spot exactly like a stallion would. Trigger has had blood work done and has no additional hormones, these traits are just learnt behaviors that have stuck with him.
Other than his small quirks he is a beautiful horse to be around.
SUITED RIDER: Experienced
SUITED DISCIPLINE: Blank canvas and with training would be suitable for any discipline.
EASY TO: float, tack up, worm, farrier, rug, catch, lead, wash and groom
