"Val" (short for Valiant) is a solid bay mustang with a dorsal stripe down his back. He was born in a holding facility in May 2013 and we adopted him in May 2015.
He's got an extensive amount of ground work put into him. He's a sweet guy who prefers to be a pocket pony. His biggest challenge when we got him was respecting personal space, which we've worked through and will stay out of or get out of your space with minimal correction. His biggest issue now is that he likes to be mouthy (not so much that he bits, but he likes to lick everything!... (read more) We're working on that with him).
*I haven't pushed his saddle training as I wanted to give him plenty of time to mature some, but have jumped on to sit bareback numerous times & been on him to actually ride only a handful of times so he does get the basic concept.
*He's also been ground driven.
*He's been trailered regularly to Norco and different areas in Riverside.
*He's been ponied all around town by my house both with and without a saddle.
*I've got no issues bridling (snaffle) or saddling this guy.
*Val is a "city" horse and gets regular exposure to (but limited to): dogs, goats, strollers, joggers, bicyclists, tractors, children, motorcycles, other horses,
I'm asking $800 for him but am open to considering other offers.
I am selling because I have a percheron draft horse on the way and want one less mouth to feed.
If you have any specific questions or want more photos please ask.
