Duke is just about as perfect as they get. I always wanted a golden palomino, and he was truly a gift to us and our family. He has been to many horse shows, he won the Year End Green Horse Hi Point award at Color Country Equestrian Open shows in 2010 at the age of 3. He has gone riding down the Virgin River multiple times. He doesn't mind staying in the very back of the herd, you can leave the herd and he doesn't get herd bound EVER! He has brought in our cows during the spring and fall round-ups with beginners on his back totally babysitting them the whole time.... (read more) (Although I wouldn't recommend for a beginner, buy yourself an old plug) :) ...He has SUPER HARD nice hardy feet. He has never needed shoes, I'm not ALL FOR barefoot riding, believe me, but if they don't need shoes I won't put them on my horses,,,he has his dam's nice feet, straight legs. His sire is Imperial Golden Cinder (World Grand Champion producer). The ONLY reason I am selling him is I need more room for Quarter horses for giving lessons to my riding students. He is a novelty item at our place, I am hoping for someone who wants a nice fox trotting horse (WITH A SUPER CANTER--NEVER EVER CROSSFIRES). In fact his canter is SO collected (trained with Clinton Anderson's method, TRUE collection, you do NOT hang on his mouth and shove him into the bit with 20 pounds of pressure on his mouth...he will collect with your legs and SUPER soft in the mouth and SUPPLE everywhere! He knows WHOA and will STOP ON A DIME! Seriously, NO FLAWS, NO VICES. He has been there done that...multiple parades, not spooky of anything. I will require that you would consider me if you were to resell him that I would get the 1st right of refusal...I don't want him to go somewhere to just get lost in different/new owners. Call and we'll talk...435-703-4112
A student of mine playing, she lets him hard trot since she starts posting, but you can see him gaiting at the beginning, and also his cute canter and nice solid stop. Watch Carlie n Duke-upl&context=G2f11435AUAAAAAAAhAA
