Treasure has returned to the farm from his hiatus as babysitter for one of our other horses at the home farm. He has settled in well (again) and has started back to work. He's a fun, confident horse, and one that really enjoys being ridden. He is truly a little-big horse. His size is deceptive--he's so well made, he looks like he could be 17 hands tall! He has fantastic bone and is structurally solid.
Treasure enjoys jumping and was started over little fences before his babysitting assignment. He loves to work, but is equally happy hanging around doing nothing. After his vacation, we saddled him up and other than being a bit surprised at the change in the scenery--we did some infrastructure changing and resurfaced the riding arena while he was gone--he went back like he had been out just the day before.
Treasure is suited to any type of rider, and can be a pleasure horse or one who tackles the show ring or the hunt field. He has great feet (still barefoot), very little wear and tear from his life on the track, and is ready to go in any direction!

Treasure has been with us for almost a year now, and has filled several roles during his stay. First and most important was that of best friend to one of the young riders at my farm. He and Maufi were as thick as thieves for almost six months when she took a nasty spill off of a friend's horse and stopped riding for a while. When that vacation started, however, so too did Treasure's next job: that of companion to one of my personal horses who had injured a hind suspensory and has been on lay up until this month.
Treasure returned to the farm today, and will re-begin his under saddle training in the next week or so. He's a great worker with a fabulous work ethic. He has three nice gaits and is very uncomplicated. He had started over small fences, and is up for any challenge.
