Oakley is a grade gelding in his early twenties. He has a big personality and can have a bit of an attitude from time to time. As a result of the neglectful situation he was removed from, Oakley has some anxiety around feeding time. He has been in an exercise program and has been doing ground work with staff and trainers at the farm. He is anxious and often tense so he has been working on relaxation and softness. We believe he has background as a riding horse but has not yet been ridden since being put back to work. Oakley will require an intermediate to advanced handler/rider because he can be hard to handle at times. He is very smart and performs well when he can be worked 4-5 days a week.
