With a heavy heart, I am selling my horse at this time. A little about him: he is 15 years old and has had zero previous health concerns. No founder, no colic. He stands at 16.2 hh and is built like a tank. He has zero vices - does not kick, buck, bite, bolt - and has a very submissive personality to both people and horses. In every herd he has been in, he has been very low on the pecking order. He is not food aggressive either and can be comfortable fed treats by hand if you choose.... (read more)
As far as training goes, he is completely broke. I won't use the term 'bombproof' because no horse is bombproof - something can and WILL happen. He has trotted the barrel pattern as well as poles. He does not spook or freeze up at cows either, so ranch work is definitely in his future. I can also swing a rope around his head. When the ranch does their mounted shooting practice, I can sit on him and watch it and he doesn't spook or go anywhere. He neck reins and can ride in a curb or snaffle bit, as well as bitless. He does just fine in a halter and lead rope too.
Tank is FAST. He can really tear it up if you ask him to. It doesn't take much to ask him, either - a squeeze will do. He is also voice trained and knows the usual - "Whoa," "trot," "walk," etc.
I am asking $1500 firm on him.
