Jack is a big easy going kind of guy who would be best suited for trail riding. He is patterned on barrels (had 30 days of professional training) and my daughter nearly won a saddle on him last year in the 4D at our local racing association but I won't sell him as a "barrel horse", although he seems to enjoy it, as he gets out of alignment easily and would need to see a chiropractor and be kept legged up to be run. He WILL buck if he is sore and out of alignment.... (read more) Using him as strictly a trail horse we have never had any problems with him and he can be let sit for periods of time and jumped right on. There is just something about going around the barrels that puts him out of alignment. His left foot kicks out when he runs but it has not ever caused a problem, it is just something he was born with. My son climbs all over him and he just stands there. We have pushed cows on him but roping is not his thing. He has been used for 4H by both my daughter and son the last two years and done well. This last year he also had another rider use him for 4H and tolerated being saddled and unsaddled and re-saddled after each class in the hot sun for the two day show. My daughter used him for queening one year and he carried flags and did grand entries and he has done some English riding with her. He is good for the farrier, loads and travels well and will stand at the trailer all day quietly. He is the alpha male at feeding time but otherwise is good with other horses. I have lots of pictures and video upon request. I would be willing to trade him for a smaller running tractor with attachments (auger, box scraper, disc tiller) or the right broke Jr. rodeo/barrel racing prospect in the 4-5 year old range (registered and sound) if it were to happen soon as we need time to get one ready for spring rodeo season.
