This listing is for an extremely special horse. He's a been there, done that kind of guy. His previous experience/training includes: being packed out up in the mountains, running barrels competitively, being roped off of and doing ranch work, 4-H, beginner lessons, extensive trail riding, etc. He has been used as a pleasure/trail horse for the past three years. I was told he has papers but I have been unable to track them down. Either way, he is an exceptional horse.... (read more) He is 16 years old, 16.1hh, and is incredibly stocky and strong. He got caught up in barbed wire a few years ago and managed to get a t post stuck in his shoulder while trying to get out of the wire and can no longer run barrels competitively or pack due to that shoulder injury but it's never been a deal breaker for me. Very slight limp when on really uneven ground so I am NOT selling him as sound for mountain riding. On normal, flat ground he does great. Not a speed horse. Very light and responds well to all riders, even beginners although he gets cranky when in the round pen sometimes and prefers to be out on trails or big open spaces. He neck reins like a champ. Not spooky and can be a babysitter easily. He has a really smooth, slow canter. Tons of miles left in him and if you give him a job, he will never let you down. Truly is a gentle giant who couldn't possible be more broke. Loads, bathes, clips, ties, utd on everything. Doesn't like to ride out alone.
Price is $1200 firm. Email with questions and to set up a time to come meet him.
