Horses like Tango don't come along every day. His history is one which has become all too common.
Tango was rescued by his previous owner. He was starving and neglected when she took him in.
He has made a remarkable recovery after a year of TLC. 4 months ago, with a heavy heart, his owner was
forced to move out of state. She had nowhere for Tango to go, and was determined not to take him to
a sale. She wanted to find him a great forever home, but did not have the time or resources available to
re-home him. I took Tango in and reassured her that I would care for him until I could find him the kind
of home he deserved.
Tango's very name is so fitting for him. He is quite spicy. No bucking, rearing, or running off,
but lots of energy and even more personality. He is very smart and willing, but needs an experienced
rider/horse owner until he is "tuned back up". He stands around 15'2HH. The video was taken about 2 weeks ago, and obviously,
you will be able to tell from the snow on the ground, it was VERY cold.
This was Tango's very first ride since coming to live with me. I had no idea what
a cool ride he would be or how much potential he had. He never offered to buck or rear and he
took everything in stride like a pro. He neck reins, backs, spins, and even ROPES! He
is very quiet on the ground and under saddle. I will keep my word and be very selective about the home he
is going to. He is an easy keeper. He had front shoes on when he got here, but has since had them
taken off and seems to be doing fine. He does not require special feed. He is just on free choice hay
and grain once a day here, and is thriving. He has been pastured with geldings and mares and does fine.
He loads and unloads with ease, is easy to catch (he loves apple treats), and leads great. Take a
look at his video and if you are interested in Tango give me a call. 469-525-2149.
Serious inquiries only. His price is firm and he is not registered. He is UTD on shots, worming, trimming, etc...
Currently Tango is one of the two horses I am housing. The other is a palomino mare and she is NOT for sale.
He does well with her and she seems to be the dominant of the two. He pretty much just stays out of her way :)
I do not know anything about Tango's past, ie: where he originally came from, what he was used for, what kind of training he had,
other than what is previously listed in this post.
His previous owner stated that she had only rode him a few times, because he was so underweight when she got him
he had to get back into "riding shape" before she even attempted. She did say that he did not buck or rear, and who knows
how long he had been laid off before she got him, apparently it had been awhile, since he hadn't had any kind of care, much less riding.
I do know that he is very broke. He responds to leg pressure and has a nice handle. Whatever he did, or whatever he was, he was
obviously a nice horse to have.
Thanks for looking!
