Kind and gentle, a super easy keeper through all seasons! This 12 year old Palomino Paint Quarter Horse is perfect for riding the trails, arena exercises or as a beginner lesson horse. Lots of stamina. He has been trained and ridden primarily English with direct reining, but can learn neck reining with no problem. We put an English, Western or Aussie saddle on him, depending on who's riding. No issues.
He is ridden often by his Natural Horsemanship trainer, and the owner's novice husband. Has no issues with traffic, busy roads, cars, trucks, or other horses. Not herd bound or barn sour. Sensitized to correct leg pressures. Soft mouth and works equally well with curb bit or bitless bridle. Enjoys doing jumps in our arena, very willing to do as asked. Dependable, good natured, a real sweetheart!
Easy to retrieve from the paddock - does not run away.
Non-spooky! Has walked through flapping curtains on windy days without issue.
Prefers to live outside, 24/7.
Never causes any trouble, doesn't challenge other horses.
