TARIQ is a 5 year old SUPER SWEET, loving, teddy bear personality friesian gelding for sale. Very good looking, good movements with a friendly, gentle character---he LOVES to hug, and give kisses! He is easy to ride, and is everyone's FAVORITE horse to trail ride, because he is rock solid SAFE, and happy to go ANYWHERE--even alone!
Tariq likes to work, learn and please and is a forgiving horse with a quiet behavior. No problem to ride him with other horses and he is easy to handle on the ground---or at the beach, even in the crashing surf, being ridden bareback, and with NO HANDS! (see video above)
And he is great in traffic. This young gelding has FANTASTIC potential for dressage, and such a good mind; we can honestly say that he is suitable for ANY level rider, he is UNCOMPLICATED, and very willing.
Tariq has three very good gaits, and MUCH experience in traffic AND is double trained to ride, and drive as a single, in a pair, and in a 4 in hand. We are always looking for horses that make fantastic pleasure/trail horses, and also have the quality to show, and Tariq has it all. Very nice conformation and elastic elongated suspension with strong powerful movements, not lazy at all!
Tariq is 16.1 hands, and he is comfy to sit, for those of you with achy backs:). I personally ride this boy bareback, at Baywood!!
Tariq is 100% approved with a recent pre-purchase exam.
This is a great horse for beginners, and he has wonderful movement and a willing nature, that more advanced riders will appreciate, because is a QUICK learner and he LIKES to work! He has excellent papers and is a son of the highly respected SPORT approved stallion, Take.
Tariq is an exceptional value that WILL NOT LAST, on a young talented GOOD THINKING gelding that is VERY affectionate, loves attention, and really GIVES hugs!!!:)
TARIQ HAS ARRIVED FROM EUROPE, and is located at our san francisco bay area stable, for you to see and try!!
