Update May 2017 Boston has had a good foundation in the arena with proper ground work and lots of leg yielding and softening. He is willing and wants to please. While he will do well in an arena setting, he really excels on the trail. Water? No problem! Bridges? He goes right over! Boston does well alone or with friends. He's a very social horse and wants to meet every horse around. He has been ridden down the road and is a gem. He loads and stands quietly for baths. Perfect gentleman for the Farrier. He will eventually be well suited for a beginner/intermediate rider. He is still learning all the fancy buttons, so he will need some on going education. He's an in your pocket type of horse and would make a wonderful additional to any family.
