Mr Nice Guy
Registered Name>> Mr Nice Guy
Barn Name>> Jett
Birth Year>> 2009
Breed>> Elite Hanoverian
Breed Registry>> AHS
Coat Colour>> Black
Stable Colour>> Red
Personality>> Jett comes across as the perfect first horse, he seems to be as bombproof as can be, he doesn't need a rider who has to do all the thinking, though it's when you get under the surface that you realised that this horse needs a person who knows what they are doing, both in the saddle and on the ground.
When being ridden he needs a rider who will trust the gelding's judgement as well as offer their own input (he prefers a partnership). On the ground, while respectful, he can be a little headstrong at times, comes from being gelded after being a stallion for two years.
When all is said and done though, Jett is a lovely horse. He is happier to be grazed with ponies ('cause he's so small), keeping to himself if put out with larger horses. Though it can seem that he is watching you while being groomed and trying to work out the reason why you think you have to be doing it.
Basic History>> Jett was born at a well established Hanoverian stud farm. He was handled from birth, and remained at his dam's side until he was weaned at seven months. His training went pretty straight forward, though he had always been a pretty tall baby, as was routine at the farm, he was worked on the ground until he was four, then was started under the saddle, a year later he was sold, gelded, and his life as a show horse began.
Jett seemed to shine in the arena, but his real passion seemed to be in cross country, though he was trained as an eventer so that is what his owners' daughter did with him, though she had more arguments with the gelding than she had nice rides, as she had always been taught to do the thinking for the horse, and while Jett liked to do his own thinking, they quite often clashed.
It was after she was thrown at a large show that the family decided it was time to say farewell to the "headstrong" gelding.
