This fella was started last year with 30 days natural horsemanship training. This covered his groundwork, desensitizing, and introduction to saddling. He proved himself to be smart and calm and took readily to the saddle (never bucked once)!... (read more)
This summer we added another 30 days training for the saddle. He now is confident in all the basic maneuvers and willingly carries his rider wherever he is asked to go. This horse is not spooky, watches where he is going, and gaits naturally. He has been introduced to the bit, but does not yet ride in one. Striker rides nicely with a side pull.
Striker has a curious alert personality that is fun to get to know and ride.
He is friendly and affectionate and bonds well with his rider.
He is still cautious, but steadily gaining trust of young kids.
He is well behaved with the farrier, ties fine, and trailer loads and unloads.
Striker is an unregistered pure breed Tennessee Walker from Stanly, WI. His sire is "Creamalo King" and his dam was a paint mare by the name of "Cash" --both registered.
If not sold this fall Striker will be finished trained in the spring with the goals of:
Experience on trails
At that time his price will go up accordingly. However he may be purchased now and brought back for another 30 added in the spring. We have decided to offer him for sale now as the next six months are an excellent opportunity for him to adjust to a new home and new rider. Gaited horses take longer to finish growing and filling out, so it is not recommended that they be ridden strenuously till they are completely mature.
Striker is a unusually beautiful horse with a special sweet personality. Don't miss the chance to meet him and see if he is what you are looking for!
