Jake is a 20-yr old Paint/Paso Fino that I bought 2 years ago. He is the first horse I've ever owned. He has been a wonderful introduction to the horse world because he is well-trained but spunky, personable, fun, and loving. We have not had any health issues, but he does crib and has worn down his front teeth. Other than this bad habit (which he has NOT passed on to any of his other 8 stable-mates), he is an ideal horse for families with riders of different abilities. He is peppy enough so that I would not recommend him for new riders.
