"Silver" 14 year old grade gelding. Flea bitten gray. Stands 15.2. Very well broke. Great for confident beginner and would even be great as a lesson horse. This gelding came from a working cattle ranch in Utah in 2008. Owner died and sold all of his stock. This horse was purchased in 2008 by a couple in Jackson, WY where they used him as a pack horse on hunting trips and as their go to horse for beginner riders. He has been there, done that in his lifetime.... (read more) From working cattle, to packing out elk, to just trail riding EVERYWHERE, this horse has done it. He has a very smooth canter and a nice jog, steady walk and has a great stop and back to him. Side passes, yields forequarters and hind quarters. Moves off of leg pressure. Neck reins. Knows the cue "whoa" while you use your seat to stop him. Very easy to bathe, trim and shoe. He is currently barefoot and trimmed on 1/12/14. Current coggins in hand. Since September of 2010, we have owned this horse. We have taken him to South Dakota Black Hills as well as on MANY overnight trips and trail rides. He ties up to anything and will stay put. He is also hobble broke.
This gelding loves, and has a very warm connection with, young/teenage girls and women. He loves to be handled and groomed and ridden. He thrives on being loved and ridden.
He can be stalled or turned out. He is easy to catch. Easy to bridle and easy to saddle. Loads very easily into the trailer, backs out of trailer, and trailers well. Does well being fed Purina Healthy Edge every day and being fed the appropriate amount of hay. Does just fine with green grass. Has never foundered. Has great hoof and bone under him.
We are offering him for your consideration because of our lack of time to give this guy the attention he craves and deserves.
