Today I had the chance to get one of my students on Atlantis. She is a dressage rider, and I knew she would love his thoughtful mind, forward springy gaits, and she would enjoy the loft in his stride. Kimberly Hale Photography took some pictures for us and in a happy accident we ended up with matching shirt, saddle pad, and sky!

Saxon arrived at Bit of Honey Training in mid-November 2018. He is an absolute pleasure to have around the barn and catches everyone's eye! With his kind temperament and gentle ways he is absolutely the unicorn you are looking for. He has had the same owner since he was a yearling and she unfortunately has had life get in the way, which is the only reason he is for sale as he was her dream horse. He is completely sound and is easy, quiet, and uncomplicated to ride. He has given many riding lessons to children, and he is careful and a wonderful confidence booster for any rider.
Saxon has vaulting training and is steady as a walk/trot horse, comfortable with moving mounts and even back flips off him! It would not take much to finish him as a vaulting horse with canter work. He rides out quietly alone or in a group on the trails, and has shown at training level dressage through Training Level Test 3 with positive comments from the judges on what a nice mover he is.
Saxon will remain at Bit of Honey in training until sold, and will resume competing in dressage in the spring.
