HERE IS A REVIEW FROM ONE OF HIS RIDERS:
I am an adult amateur rider. I have been riding Shado off and on for about two years. Recently I have been riding him several times a week. He is a wonderful horse! Shado has a willing attitude, likes to learn new things, wants to please, and has lots of energy. When I first started riding him, he taught me so much, since he knew more about dressage than I did. He could execute moves that I hadn’t been successful at with less well trained horses. More importantly, Shado has taught me to have light and effective hands. When I got the hang of quick corrections and a willingness on my part to trust him, we really started to communicate. Shado can also be ridden on a loose rein, like a western horse, and will respond well to directions from my seat and leg, with only slight reminders from the rein. He also likes to do natural horsemanship style ground work. He is attentive and focused. He is a gentleman at shows and trailers well. He is a curious fellow, and wants to be brave, as long as his human partner has confidence in him. He is sweet and polite when being groomed and tacked up. If I could, I would buy him myself!!
