Tucker is a calm and pretty black 9-year-old gelding whose present owner was told is a breeding-stock (solid) Paint. He was started under saddle as a 3-year-old; then turned out to pasture for four years, and has now been in training and had lots of riding for the last two years. Tucker has a sweet, laid-back personality with a 'medium'-walk, nice jog, easy lope, knows how to side pass and backs well. He has been trained using leg aids/cues to guide his body more than reins, and since he is ridden in a snaffle isn't fully trained to neck rein at this point.... (read more) His ground manners are excellent and he has been trained to do a full 'showmanship' pattern too. Tucker ignores dogs running around his feet, isn't nervous around tractors and trucks passing close by, and is accustomed to deer, cattle, cats and llamas. He is an excellent trail horse who goes out alone or will lead, travel in the middle or bring up the end of a group. He has explored all of Oregon, being ridden throughout the Cascade Mountains, on the beach, been on several poker rides and numerous horse-camping trips. In a pasture/herd situation, Tucker is lower on the totem pole and gets along well with other horses. If you are looking for a sweet, sure-footed trail horse that goes through water, is cautious on steep or narrow trails and is just as comfortable out in the open desert as in close quarters in the forest, you should meet Tucker. He can stand around for days or weeks and when caught and saddled, doesn't need to be longed; he is just the same as when he was turned out. He has also been ridden in indoor arenas, so when the weather is nasty you can enjoy him indoors plus he is tidy in his stall. He is best suited for a confident, intermediate or better rider since he is still young. He loads and hauls great; is easy to worm; current on all shots, and hoof trims (he has hard hooves so goes barefoot nicely or wears 'Old Mac' boots in extremely rocky terrain) and lives by Scio, Oregon.
