Other Facts:

     This sweet little guy is calm and relaxed, yet not dead-sided.  He is super cute and aims to please.  He works well with or without other horses.  He also loves beginners and his smooth slow canter is perfect for walk/trotters learning to canter.  He has a way of making beginner riders look like they know what they're doing.  Nowadays Monty prefers smaller riders and jumps 1'6" and under, so he is great to learn on before moving on to more challenging horses.
