Val is a very well bred horse and has done very well in the past as a show hunter/riding horse . Val s time with me has been mainly hacking one or two shows clinics and dressage . Val has not been in the school for a couple of years now just hacking . Val needs a calm kind person but firm as some times can be a handful on the ground . He hacks on his own but is happier in company as after all these years still does not like scramble bikes or big tractors when engines are running . Good farrier vet travel
