Medieval Art is a horse who is bursting with potential! “Arty” is the product of some outstanding Standardbred bloodlines– his sire, his sire of sire, and his sire of dam, all won over $2 million in lifetime earnings! Arty moves around with an air of confidence in his step, as though he knows of his regal bloodlines. He also sports a nice build with long legs and a relatively uphill movement.
Arty has gentlemanly ground-manners that translate to ease of handling for the farrier and vet. In turnout, Arty likes to have a buddy, and he is not dominant– he watches out for himself, but he is a kind companion. He has experienced both individual stabling with daily turnout and 24/7 pasture lifestyles, successfully. He is an easy keeper and has become a very adaptable guy!
Arty was a pacer in his racing career, but he actually has a lovely trot! He is beginning to offer steps of canter, but doesn’t quite have the confidence or maintain it. He can be a bit devious at times, and can test his rider, but if you earn his partnership, we could see him being a very competitive mount in he show ring! He loves going on trail rides as well, and is happy to go out on rides on his own.
