Colty was the first horse that I ever bred, and was my pride and joy. I've owned him his entire life, and parting with him has not been an easy decision. However, with the gypsies now he isn't being used, so I sent him to training for a tune-up.
He spent 7 years in professional training and showing with Howard and Andi Farmer of Ohio. He showed up to second level dressage and 3' hunters, though was schooling higher.
He has been ridden sidesaddle and brideless.
He is a National Champion halter horse, the 2012 AWS Horse of the Year and Stallion of the Year, and scored an inspection score of an impressive 82.02, which gave him both Elite and Supreme status.
The first star after his name is for a Gold rated inspection score. The second is for a National title.
Once I got into gypsies, Colty sat for a few years so has recently been sent for a tune-up with a local trainer. He is currently in training.
Colty is not for beginners. He is a very powerful horse with a lot of training. He is best suited for an intermediate or better rider. He loves to jump and loves to work and loves attention. He is brave and bold and thinks he is the most important horse.
