We bought this nice young gelding after seeing him compete and win several classes including the Open Gaited Breed Country Pleasure Championship @ The North American Gaited Horse Championships in Sedalia MO last Oct. We hoped he would make a trail horse because of his calm, quiet nature and smooth way of going. In the arena and the pastures around the barn he does great, but was green on the trail. Due to very serious neck issues, my husband can not risk bringing him where he needs to be.He does not do anything bad @ all; no buck, rear, runaway. Although a well finished mount in the show ring, he's just green for the trail. He did many things well, water, logs, mud, etc, and certainly could make a trail horse given the time and training. He bought an older gelding last month,that has trail ridden all over the country, and so we have Bonner for sale. He has been well cared for, UTD on all shots, shoes( good hard feet), worming etc. He gets along great w/ my mare and the new gelding. Easy/friendly around the barn, hauls great. We trail rode him a little last fall, and then got him out and rode him once before making the 3 videos yesterday, w/ no issues. He deserves the right person to ride him doing what he does so well already, and on to learn new things. call for more info and any questions. Nice personality. call for more info and any questions.
