Picasso

Picasso is a 2008 black and white grade paint gelding. He stands at a true 15.2+ hands and is drop dead gorgeous. Picasso came to us as a "retraining" project. This is a HUGE athlete and he is BROKE to DEATH. Great horse to haul and trailer anywhere, awesome to in new places and always performs better in the show pen than at home. Awesome freindly horse with great ground manners, no pull back, and great with clippers and anything else.
 
Western - Picasso has some reining training. Finished spin and a great slide stop. He is circling nicely and is changing leads. Picasso has been hauled all over the treasure valley this summer for drill team in 2015 and 2016 and did compete in the Idaho state drill team competition. 2016 our drill team won the state competition and we actually performed at the Snake River Stampede. We also had the opportunity to perform nightly carrying sponsor flags at the Snake River Stampede. We also have done parades and rodeos with drill team. Picasso has been trail rode and is great around traffic, dogs, 4-wheelers, and he will trail ride all by himself without any issues. Other western experience includes a few play days and schooling a cowboy challenge course. In the fall of 2015 Heather took Picasso to Stanley Idaho for an entire week of trail riding in some of Idaho's toughest terrain. Picasso didn't miss a step and was absolutely one of the nicest horse on the trails.  Picasso is always business like and wants to please you.  If there was an issue it was never him it was always his rider. He still can get a little nervious on grand entries or audience above his head or elevated bleachers but he is all business and has performed everytime without any kind of issues.
 
English - Well Picasso has been evented for 2 years. He was awesome to say the least. We competed Beginner Novice for our first event, but then Novice for our 2nd and 3rd event. In the spring of 2016 KateLynn showed Training Level Eventing at Ogden UT.  Dressage is his weekest point but we are working tracking up and getting more consistent at the trot. Our dressage score in Enterprise, OR was at 36.5. Picasso has also done lots jumper shows and has been schooled very sucessfully x-country to Preliminary and more.

In July2015 he has finally came into the skin I knew he had in him... My 4 year old started jumping him and I think the video alone is going to get huge hits!  Now I realize my kid is not a normal kid but you must see his video. If Kinsley can get him somewhat close to the jump he will not even hesitate to take the jump. In 2016 Kinsley actually competed at the intro level Eventing and was the star of the show on Picasso. He is just so honest and light to ride.

In the fall of 2016 Sianna and Kinsley switched horses and Sianna is now Eventing and doing how jumpers on Picasso at 4 foot and more. Picasso is the most versatile horse both English or western adult or kid we have ever owned.
 
Some videos are from his very first shows in Feb. 2015. More recent videos at the bottom. If you are interested in Drill team videos, I have tons, but I just need to give you access to our group page. Please contact me for access to drill videos.
