Smoky is a 3-year-old 1/2 Haflinger, 1/4 Arabian, 1/4 Welsh gelding. He has excellent ground manners: stands tied, picks up his feet, waits at gates, waits for food, yields, backs, and keeps at handler's pace when being led. He stands for mounting, flexes, and is very sensitive to pressure. He responds to leg cues and voice commands. He sidepasses, backs, and has a very good stop. Smoky would make an excellent trail horse and will ride in front or follow.... (read more) He willingly walks through water. He can be ridden with a saddle or bareback, with a halter or a bridle, and has a soft mouth. He is very easy to catch, even after hard work, and has always been willing to please. He is also an easy keeper.
Smoky has an easygoing personality and he loves affection. He would be fine with a novice rider, although I prefer to sell him to someone who is knowledgeable about natural horsemanship, knows how to use leg pressure, and will keep up with his groundwork. Smoky is a very sweet, gentle horse, and I will be selective about who he goes home with. He loves to be around people, and I want to make sure he goes to a permanent home where he will receive plenty of attention and affection.
Smoky is not your average 3-year-old! He is a great little gelding with a solid foundation, ready for a permanent, loving home! Please check out his videos on YouTube to see this sweet boy in action! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLIk8NN5pYZs5LW9IMsco89Qnse_L5qtZe
