This nice looking young man is Eli. He is a 15 hands 5 year old saddle horse gelding. He is as gentle as they come. He is an absolute DOLL. Eli loves to be groomed, petted, and loved. He will walk all day if you want or he has a nice smooth, natural gait that is very easy to ride. He rides on a loose rein at walk and gait. No holding him back. Eli is beginner broke and 100% safe!!! No buck, rear, kick, or bite in this boy! He crosses water and logs with no trouble at all. He isn't afraid of dogs, cars, semi-trucks, four-wheelers, and even trains. Eli stands to be groomed, saddled, & to be shod. He loads and unloads fine in a trailer. You aren't going to have any trouble out of this one. Eli is a very laid back little guy, perfect for a new rider to gain confidence. He is the horse everyone should start riding on. Has PERFECT ground manners. He walks behind you on the lead and respects your space, no crowding or pushing on you. I honestly can't say enough about Eli. Pictures don't do him justice!! He is FAT and healthy. Eli sheds to be a black roan in the summer and is all "chromed up" with a wide blaze and two matching hind white socks. He has a full round of shoes so he is ready to go.

He is broke to death and very gentle, you don't come by horses like him very often.
