He is exceptionally solid and sure footed on the trail, not easily spooked nor barn sour and rides out alone well. He handles man-made and natural terrain with sureness and ease; includes rocks, logs, steep draws, brush, live creek crossings, mud/bogs, wildlife and cattle. He is also accustomed to the ranch dogs & cats under feet.
Lio has had Traditional, Nontraditional and Natural Horsemanship professional training. He has logged hundreds of hours on the trail with professional and amateur riders. With a style that veers towards western classical dressage, he is light in his responses, willing, brave and wants to please his handler. Responds to rein and leg aides lightly but may be more suited to riders who have a basic understanding of horsemanship techniques.
Successfully shown (professional & amateur) in Paso Fino shows his winnings include; Championships in Pleasure School Colt, Performance & Pleasure.
