Maximus is a 4-year-old Oldenburg gelding by Dutch Stallion Mezcalero.
He’s very green, although has a bit more ridden experience than Valiosa. Not entirely a good thing, as he’s got several habits and tricks.
He will soon be a very good boy to handle on the ground. The ridden part, – that one is going to take a long time. Lunge work sadly has to wait. Touched on it already; he will have to get over some earlier major hangups… We’ll try it again later.
I’ll be riding him several times per week, very easy to start. He’s out of shape, gangly, sweats at the drop of a hat, and has little control of his body. Not to mention a lot of opinions about working.
