"Brando" is a very handsome Incentive Fund nominated coming 8-year-old AQHA bay gelding. He has a kind, honest, willing disposition; a bit of a playful personality; and loves attention. Brando was started by a professional trainer when younger - introduced to cutting and used for a while as a heeling horse. Since being in his current home, he has mostly competed in and won money in Ranch Sorting and Penning, been used to pony colts, and been enjoyed on the trails.... (read more) Brando was hauled to the steep, rugged Eagle Cap Wilderness this winter where he logged about 130 miles for his rider, scouting for elk and leading a pack string. He watched where he placed his feet, handled the extreme trails in a relaxed/safe manner and got along well with the other horses on the trip. Some horses with Brando's bloodlines are quite 'hot', nervous or too sensitive for a novice to enjoy; Brando isn't high-strung but is more laid-back yet has plenty of 'go'. He has always been ridden western; is responsive to cues and loves to work cattle, but can be turned out for days or weeks and doesn't need a lot of tuning up when brought back in to ride. Brando is easy to catch, mannerly to bridle and saddle, will stand tied all day long at the barn or on a camping trip, and loads and hauls fine. Brando has some old scars and bumps on his lower legs from getting tangled up in a panel when he was a long-yearling, but they don't seem to bother him. He was recently shod and wormed, and will be due for his yearly shots in April. If you are looking for a nice, honest, friendly and fun horse to enjoy on the trails and maybe playing with cattle too, I hope you will take the time to meet Brando, who lives in Bend, Oregon.
