Additional Comments:
Copper is a 15h, 12 year old bay gelding with a strip, snip and 2 white stockings on hind feet. I have owned him for 3 years. He is a truly amazing horse. He has no vices. No buck, kick, rear. He stands for the farrier perfectly both for trims and shoes, stands tied overnight, goes wherever I point him, easy to catch, stands perfectly for saddling and mounting, loads himself into any kind of trailer. Neck reins, backs, stops, rides double with a buddy seat. I have had my 4 year old son and 6 year old daughter riding trails with me in the buddy seat. He knows when he is packing a child and is very very careful. He is safe and sane. Light in the mouth and takes his cues from the legs and seat. He has been all over the state of Iowa and ridden in the mountains in Colorado. I have had him on too many overnight camping trips to count, and we rode the River City Rodeo Iowa Trail Ride the last 2 years. It is a week long trail ride that starts at Brushy Creek by Fort Dodge and ends up in Omaha, ending with riding in a parade with 30,000 people in attendance. He is traffic safe, crowd safe, is used to all farm machinery, cows, ducks, geese, chickens, dogs, cats, 4 wheelers. Just had his feet trimmed Nov 30th, and was dewormed on Dec 2.

He needs to be retired to a home where he will be lightly ridden. He has a knock knee in the front, and up til now it hasn't bothered him at all with the kind of riding I do. This year he has started getting a bit sore after riding the challenging trails I ride. After light riding, however he is fine. He would make a perfect husband horse for the husband who wants to occasionally ride with his wife, or a perfect horse for a teen that needs to build confidence. I am very sad to have to let him go, I love him very much. He is perfect in every way, except I can't take him on challenging rides which is what I do. He will go to an approved home only. If you are interested in more info, or would like to come and try him out, please text or call me at 515.494.7319.
