All Around, Foundation, Natural Horsemanship Training, Trail, Western Riding
5 yrs old. 15hh. Green broke
Strong foundation on the ground and under saddle. Light and sensitive in halter. Ready to be finished in a number of directions or just be an amazing trail horse. Under saddle is confident at all gates. Ridden in snaffle bit with loose rein. Collects at walk and trot. Learns very quickly and is eager to please. Sweet disposition. Calm and respectful. Gets along with various pasture mates. No vices. Barefoot and has strong, solid feet.... (read more) Very sweet boy. No Papers.
Considered Greenbroke until I get more trail rides on him. Though he is well behaved on the trail, has ability to handle new/scary things well & is generally confident with a confident rider. Likes to move out and will take the lead. Good with dogs and kids.
He will do well for a confident, intermediate to experienced rider. Videos of him moving available below. He is always the taller horse when you see two in a video.Please read comments with videos and then feel free to ask questions.
More Details Below:
On the ground: Respectfully leads, backs up, side-passes, yields hindquarters by handler looking at hq, stands for farrier, bathes, ties, can be sent through/over obstacles on trail on loose line, and loads easily into trailer by being sent in, unloads quietly by backing out.
Under saddle: Backs well. Flexes vertical and laterally. Shoulder yields at walk and trot. Started on side-passes. On trail is confident with a confident rider. Goes over platforms, bridges, tarps, and through pool noodle curtain on obstacle course. Sale price comes with two sessions reviewing cues & exercises I use so new owner is off to good start.
This horse changes color to smokey buckskin with a silver mane in the spring, to a dun color in the summer, and back to golden buckskin with black points in winter. He was the most filled out when I was free feeding in a 24/7 access hay net. He can look like a completely different horse at different times of the year and in different pics. See pics for examples.(Sorry about quality of some but want to show as much as possible) UTD with vaccines, wormer, farrier.
Written contract. Cash only. Will consider “try out” period at potential buyer’s expense for care/boarding for serious parties. Located in Petaluma, CA. Can haul for reasonable fee.
Will do best deal (price) with anyone using Dave Bunfill Horsemanship for lessons.
