Parados, now six has been ridden off and on since he was three by our trainer Bill Calder, a retired veterinarian who has been starting our horses for the past seven years since the sale of his clinic in Okotoks. His method is to do ground work in the round pen and then ride out for several hours so he has had experience with gates, creeks, cows, dogs, traffic, bicycles, tarps and whatever other challenges Bill can find. He has been ridden mostly with a rope halter but has worn and is comfortable in a snaffle. He has never been shod but is good for the farrier and has been trimmed regularly. Although not a finished bridle horse he is better than well started with an excellent foundation and is ready for serious work and has had a lot of experience that an arena trained horse would not have. He has been trained to load although he has not been hauled very far. He has lived outside in a group of 5 or 6 horses for most of his life. He has been used for ponying young horses, Bill catches him in the field and rides him in bareback with a halter even after long lay-offs.
A horse with excellent bone and substance, Parados has a good mind and attitude. He has not had any injuries or physical issues. Properly conditioned, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be successful in endurance or any other activity that interests his new owner.
Similarly bred horses from our program have been successful in high level endurance, racing and as working horses We recently sold his paternal brother to a client who has been involved in high level endurance for many years.
