This is the gelding that anyone can ride, no matter how big or small. Chico is kid safe and is used for youth and beginner tourists in lessons and on trail rides and has hosted over 1,000 individual riders, many of whom were riding for the first time. He also is also used for many of our autistic students.
Chico direct reins, neck reins, walk/trot/canters on cue, moves off the leg, rides best on a loose rein in a curb bit but can also go in a loose-ring snaffle bit. On trail he leads, drags and rides independently, crosses creeks, climbs river banks and rides well on roads.
The perfect home for Chico would be with a very young or older rider. He would be perfect for anyone who just wants leisurely strolls through the woods with a reliable, safe and worry-free horse. He also wants lots of love and attention.
Chico is one of our best and most reliable horses, however we recently found a cyst in his navicular bone making his feet too tender to keep up with the rigorous work that we do at Painted Bar Stables. We have been able to easily manage his feet with shoes and pads and continue to ride him on trails and in the lessons, but we want to give him an easier life with a person of his own.
