Phoenix is a 5 y.o. quarter horse gelding 15 hh+ 1100 pounds. He is perlino in color (double dilute) with green eyes. He is super sweet, loving, and silly. Totally in your pocket type of gelding. He is GREAT on the trails....level-headed, not a spook, no buck or rear. However, he is not a total dead head and will move off when asked. (He won't offer taking off on you by any means, he prefers to take it easy), but he is soft to leg, seat, and rein cues.... (read more) So I wouldn't recommend him for a "beginner" beginner (specifically in the arena....on the trail he'll tote pretty much anyone around) as they may be confused by this. But someone who is slightly more experienced would have a blast with him!
He has a solid start in the arena, just needs a little polish.....he collects very nicely in all gaits, is picking up correct leads consistently when asked, and will even do flying lead changes. SUPER smooth ride (his jog is like butter!) and has a fabulous whoa. He just needs a little time to pull it all together.
On the trail is where he definitely shines. I rode on the trail with him with my 2 year old in the front last year. He will even will go out by himself if you are a more assertive rider. My husband takes him all over the place. Even rode home from a friends in the dark by himself.
We have owned him since he was 3 months old and will be very picky to where he goes. We are ONLY selling due to the raising hay prices, too many horses, and the fact that he is not being used to his full potential. You will not find one at this price that's not lame, crazy, or dead..... NO tire kickers or scammer! Call or email for any questions regarding this amazing boy!!! Asking $2000 719-472-4321
