"Bodi" is a sweet natured horse currently being used in a lesson program. He's been taking around kids as young as 9 like a champ, but I just can't afford two lesson horses. He's trained for western pleasure and will be showing that locally until he is sold, but the kids have also ridden him and will be showing him English. Knows his leads, counter canter, turn on haunches, lateral work, etc. A one person home would be ideal for him, but he's getting better at teaching lessons as the weeks go on. Great confidence builder as he just goes slow and puts his head down, but he will test riders the first time they get on. Someone soft yet confident is ideal. Sound and sane. There is some scar tissue on his RH from an old injury but it does not affect his movement. Hacks out, clips, ties, stands great for vet and farrier. UTD on everything. Price negotiable to a great home or someone looking to board him at Open Gate Ranch.
