Buster is a full Haflinger (although he is not registered) trail horse. He was bred in Redding Ca. We purchased him from a kids horse camp in northern California. They used him with all levels of riders. They did hunter jumper events with him as well.
We bought him for our kids to use as a trail and ranch horse. We ride western only but he can do both Western and English we were told.... (read more) We liked that he was big and stout enough to pack a big person around as well as the kids. He has had a little experience with the cows at our ranch. But he never really got used to them coming up around him. He tolerates it but doesn't seem to enjoy it like our other horses.
He is a great trail horse he will go through anything you ask him to: water, bridges, stairs, hills, logs. He will load in a stock horse type trailer. I don't think he had been clipped before we got him. But I have got him to where he will let you now.
He is a sweet horse he gets along with all the other horses in the pasture. And doesn't care what order he is in on the trail. We currently have shoes on him now because we shoe our horses in the summer. But before we got him I'm not sure he had had shoes ever. He does well for the farrier now.
We decided to sell him because the kids have started to ride the big horses. We use the horses on the cows a lot and Buster doesn't seem to enjoy that. He has been a great horse to have because he is patient with the kids and tolerates a lot. He is a direct rein horse he doesn't neck rein. And from all the kids ridding him he is a little hard mouthed but still maneuverable. The kids just have to know how to ride and make him do what they want. He is not spooky is gentle and has no buck. We have put the kids on double and he does just fine.
Buster is not a show or fancy arena horse. Just a nice trail horse. Contact me if you are truly serious. I have videos upon request.
