Papered Purebred Palomino QH Gelding - 6 years old, Fun and Friendly Prospect for Experienced Horseperson
Asking $2000 but negotiable to the right home. He is located 25 mins SE of Calgary near Carseland.
Smoothie is a great horse. Registered name is Smooth Bar Wimpy. Very nicely put together. Aprox. 15.3 hands. He is broke at a walk and trot and needs some training then consistent riding at the canter/lope. He needs ground training on his canter before he can do it under saddle. He has bucked at the canter, though not every time. I have consulted with a trainer and it would not take much to get him past this but he would need ground training then miles to teach him to lope well therefore He needs an experienced person to finish him or could see a trainer to work on his canter. He needs consistent, regular riding. He is not for a beginner or children.
He has been ridden in outdoor arenas, roads, fields, in parades and was In The mountains as a 3 year old. He can be ridden bareback in just a halter around the yard. He has been ridden both English and Western and could go either way. He is quiet and sweet but does have character and spunk.
Because he needs training at the canter and since he hasn't been ridden consistently in the last 6 months I am offering him as greenbroke even though has been ridden extensively from the time he was 3-5. He has been ridden recently just not as often as in the past. The reason he wasn't ridden as much over the last few months was because of weather conditions and then I was pregnant. We did continue with groundwork with him as much as possible during the off season.
He attended 4H as a 2 year old. He is very friendly, curious and smart and has nice ground manners. Always comes to visit and get sctratches and love. He has had lots of ground work but I would recommend continued groundwork as he likes to learn and he really benefits from it.
Stands tied nicely. Easy to catch. Loves attention. Gets along with all types of other horses. Good around dogs, tractors, train etc.
He is UTD on vaccines and deworming and has always had regular foot care. He is great with his feet and has really nice strong feet. He has been barefoot for 2.5 years and does really well this way. Has never had any injuries or illnesses and has always been sound. He is very healthy and a really easy keeper.
We love him but we have a young baby and another young project horse so we want to find someone who can put the time into him that he deserves. He needs an experienced person to finish him but He will be a fantastic horse when finished.
To a good home only. We would love to be able to come visit him in his new home once in a while or at least get pictures and updates. No meat buyers! Serious inquiries only please.
