If you’re looking for a safe, reliable, anyone-can-ride type of guy- you’ve found your match! Fred Astaire turns heads everywhere he goes. His big stature, combined with his stunning color, never goes unnoticed! Fred is safe in every way, from husband and grandparents to kids, even adults who do silly things. We have a multitude of videos showing how fun and versatile he is! He has the flashiness to be noticed in the arena and the dependability to care for anyone who climbs aboard!

Fred is the same horse, no matter how long of a break he has. He loves attention and is always the first to meet you at the gate. No matter what you ask of him, he always gives 110%. Fred hauls quietly, stands tied, loads, and unloads- don’t fret, we haul him in a standard-sized slant load trailer! He is a big fellow, standing at a solid 16.3hh, big enough for adults and safe for kids to ride around! Fred has been exposed to tractors, mowers, chickens, cattle, dogs, cats, flags, and tarps; nothing bothers him! He will ride out alone, leading a group, somewhere in the middle or bringing up the rear. Whether there are logs, creeks, wildlife, or bridges, nothing phases this guy! See Fred’s videos of him riding down the road, on the trails, in the arena, through town, in a river, chasing cattle, & carrying a flag. In his videos, we also have several different riders, and no matter who his rider is, Fred is always the same horse. Fred is the most laid-back, go-with-the-flow type of horse! No matter what your purpose is, choose Fred!

Fred has been turned out with no issues with cattle, mares, geldings, and yearlings. He is a super easy keeper; no grain is needed! He will happily stay outside 24/7 or behave like a gentleman in a stall. Fred loves to be groomed and bathed! See his video of bath time! Fred has a heart of gold (much like his coat!), and he would make a wonderful addition to any family or be someone’s best friend! If you have any questions or concerns or want to see Fred live via Facetime- reach out, and we will be happy to accommodate!

Please feel free to visit Fred! We have an Air B&B on site about an hour from Chicago, IL.
