His defining trait is laziness. He'll do anything to get out of work and puts the minimum amount of effort into his flatwork He also takes advantage of riders who don't take charge. The things that make Art wonderful are his beautiful movement and jumping style, his honesty to the jumps, and the very little direction he needs on course. He can go into auto pilot - he knows his job! He has won a ton of money at the Dupage Horse Show by consistently placing second and third out of 30+ in the under saddle classes. He even made a little money in the 2'9" classes! He's such a good boy! He was sold at the beginning of September in 2004.
