PLEASE don't immediately say 'OLD' regarding this good gelding... he is still healthy, sound and has 'been there/done that'. If you are looking for an ALL-AROUND winner for your youngster to compete with or learn on? I hope you will consider this colorful gelding who can be enjoyed in the show ring, on the trails, bareback or western or English. Tuff is a big, handsome and very well-trained 1995 APHA gelding who has spent many years taking young ladies to championships in various disciplines.... (read more) He has been an OHSET horse; a 'Pepsi Girl' horse; done drill teams; western pleasure; roping; sorting; penning; reining; and been a RODEO QUEEN mount. He has been in dozens of rodeos and parades throughout Oregon; is rated a solid 3D barrel horse when pushed and is even a great, solid and sure-footed trail horse in the mountains. Tuff is smart and 'rides' to the knowledge of his rider, so he might be lazy with a beginner but can DO IT ALL with an intermediate or more experienced rider who knows how to ask him for MORE. He is mannerly and good to bathe, shoe and clip; is fine around cattle and dogs, and nothing spooks him in the arena or on the trails. Tuff has some 'maturity' on him, but still is very capable of taking a confident young rider to the top of their dreams in OHSET or 4H or junior rodeo; he can DO IT ALL and WIN. Tuff needs a new home since his owner is heading off to college and he is much too nice and valuable as a youngster or novice mount to put into retirement. He is current on his shots, worming and hoof care and lives in Bend, Oregon.
