Roddie is a TRUE gentlemen! He is my gorgeous boy with a heart of gold and deserves to be loved and spoilt. If you are looking for a horse that is reliable and trust worthy he is the horse for you. He always looks after me when we are out riding and nothing fazes him. He also is the type of horse that can be ridden everyday or once a month and he will still be just as well behaved and schooled.
