Big'un has been used for day working on ranches, worked at the cow sale barn, horse sale barn, trail riding, cattle sorting competitions and just pleasure riding. He is easy to catch, bathe, shoe, tie and load. Pastures good with other horses or can be stalled. You can open gates from him, side passes and backs. I have pasture roped on him alot but never have roped in an arena since I have had him. He never has bucked with me and has never been lame. He has never coliced since I have had him.
