Stewart16.2H 7 yo Belgian x TB Gelding.  Actually it’s Saint Stewart, because he is a saint especially if you are a beginning or timid rider.  This is the horse to learn to ride or jump on!  He’s such a steady eddie.  He’s nicely forward off your leg, but take your leg off, he stops.  Wonderful to jump – never speeds up going down to a fence, stays the same in front of it and on landing.  I have seen him slow himself when a rider became unbalanced over a fence.  He’s the best on the trail, his spook (which is extremely rare) is just a start in place.  And he’s very comfortable to ride – great for someone with back issues.  He would be wonderful for some low level eventing as he is a surprisingly nice mover with a big hind step.  He’s wonderful in the barn, great for farrier, vet and clipping.  This horse is not the prettiest, or the most refined I’ve ever had, but he is one of the safest.  Lesson horse, trail horse, husband horse, lower level eventing or foxhunting, Stewart is your guy!  $7500
