Ike is not for a beginner but can be very sweet once he trusts you. He can stand tied and will pick up his feet. He has been worked with on saddling but is fearful of a bridle and can be pushy on the ground. However, he will walk, canter and trot and stops on a verbal "ho". Ike is prone to respiratory infections and is missing part of his lung. He can be very sweet if he trusts you. He needs a patient, confident person to adopt him and work with him.
