This handsome colt may be only 2-1/2, but he is wise beyond his years! Tranquilo has a mind beyond compare and totally lives up to his name – Spanish for calm, relaxed, peaceful and serene. He is super smart, quickly and calmly progressing through every learning opportunity we’ve presented to him. Quilo (KEE-low) is confident and curious, will be a natural with obstacle challenges, and would make an exceptional Competitive Trail, Working Equitation or Western dressage prospect – as well as a fantastic partner for Classical dressage.
Quilo’s education includes positive reinforcement training for cooperative care and calm acceptance of scary stuff. He stands still at liberty on cue, is quiet for the farrier, cross-ties and ground-ties, loads and hauls, and more. At two-and-a-half, we’ve begun to introduce Quilo to the riding equipment he’ll wear in the future – training cavesson, bareback pad, saddle and bit – and he already lines up to the mounting block on cue. We continue to be so impressed with this young horse – he is an incredibly fast learner, and once he’s been taught something, you can count on him 100%. Quilo’s amazing temperament and sweet personality will make him a once-in-a-lifetime partner.
If you’re looking for a smart and handsome young horse to bring along in your chosen discipline, you owe it to yourself to come visit Tranquilo!
