Luke is a friendly, good-looking fellow with a nice personality. We got him seven years ago, green broke, starved, and neglected. Since then heâ��s grown a few inches, filled out big time, perked up considerably, and become a good solid trail horse that is fun to ride and pretty safe for kids and beginners. He can be a little nervous at times, like when heâ��s ridden out alone, but Iâ��ve been riding out alone a lot lately and heâ��s getting used to it and steps out fine.... (read more) Luke doesnâ��t bite, kick, buck, or rear; his worst flaw is just a tendency to shift around nervously a bit, and occasionally shy. This could probably be fixed with more handling, I just donâ��t have the time Iâ��d like to give to him. He learns fast, and is fun to work with, very peppy and sweet. Heâ��s curious and alert when out on the trail, and though he isnâ��t always trying to break into a trot like our other geldings are, heâ��ll give them a run for their money when heâ��s asked. When theyâ��ve run away on the trail, heâ��s chased them down and cut them off, handling beautifully, though heâ��s never been trained for that type of work. Heâ��s been pastured with cows and is quite comfortable with them; though he hasnâ��t been trained as a ranch horse thereâ��s not much doubt he could make a good one. He has a nice steady jog, a fast, energetic trot, a smooth, slow lope, a long, ground-eating canter, and a powerful gallop. He needs a bit of tuning up on the cues for these. Luke is a very easy keeper. Heâ��s got sound wind and good endurance, which could probably be made even better with regular riding. Heâ��s just had his hooves trimmedâ��heâ��s been barefoot since we got himâ��and he was wormed at the end of April. Selling him because Iâ��m moving to Chicago and I donâ��t think I can find an apartment for the both of us. Price is negotiable to a good home. Also selling his 15-inch black leather saddle and a felt withers pad for $175. Just send me an email, a text, or call me for more info, pictures, and/or to come see him. Thanks for looking!
