If you have been looking for an exceptional horse that is safe enough for the whole family to enjoy, this gorgeous Black and White Gelding is what you have been searching for! Big Jake is an incredible family trail horse - perfect for kids, mom, dad or grandma or guests! He is agreeable about anything and everything and simply wants to please. He is a seasoned veteran on the trails with miles and miles and miles of trail riding and camping to his credit. His resume also includes pulling a buggy - he can pull single or as part of a team, so if you don't feel like riding, you can drive him! He loves to trail ride and is not spooky - NOTHING phases him, speeding cars, noisy dogs, runners, bikers, deer, turkey, running water, etc. He is very patient and would be great for a beginning rider. He is happy to ride off by himself or with a large crowd of 200!! Put him in the lead or way at the back or somewhere mixed in the middle - he doesn't care! This gentle, 15.1h, stocky built 13yo gelding is well-trained in every way - you can get under, around, over or anywhere on him - you name it - he has most likely been there-done that! He is in excellent body condition and health - like many of us who have "lived" life, he has a couple of scars but they are barely noticeable - one on a rear leg and one under his chin - both have hair grown over them and you would not notice unless I point them out to you. He has been vetted and has a clean bill of health and is sound in every way. He is up to date on vaccines, worming and hoof care. Well, let's see - we have talked about how handsome, willing, loving and healthy this guy is - but we have not talked about his amazing smooth way of going. Floating on a Cloud may best describe that! He is willing to walk along at ease and enjoy the scenery for as long as you want to do that, but with just a gentle "kiss", he will gladly move up into his amazingly smooth saddle gait and can hold that all day, too - but wait, there's more - do you like some speed? Give him another "kiss" and a squeeze and he will rack-on ~ smooooooth with every step - gliding along and with just a quiet verbal "walk", he will slow down immediately back to walk or will stop instantly when asked for "whoa" - simple and easy for anyone to ride. Formerly owned and ridden by elderly gentleman. He has never refused anything that has been asked of him and will try anything and go anywhere - every time - without exception! He is NOT spooky and he is VERY easy to love - very sweet, quiet and well mannered - both on the ground and in the saddle. As with all of our horses, he has been desensitized to hikers, ATV's, traffic, bikes, ropes, tarps & dogs. Stands still to mount and dismount. Leave him in the pasture for weeks and he will be the same reliable trail partner next time you ride! Our horses are backed by a Satisfaction Guarantee. Are YOU Ready to RIDE!!
