This is by far one of the nicest appaloosa geldings you will ever run across. Even someone who doesn't like appaloosas would appreciate riding him. He really is a once in a lifetime horse, and the perfect family horse. Chico is broke to death, kid gentle, handy in all aspects of ranch work, and quiet enough to carry a flag, ride in a parade, or trail ride on. Best of all, he is beautifully built and marked, with a big hip, wide chest, lots of bone and a pretty head and neck with a kind eye.... (read more) At only 7 years old, Chico is one of the quietest, most willing, best minded horses on our entire place. He is honest and gentle, has never offered to buck and you can count on him to be the same horse every time you ride him. He is 15.1hh and stout, weighing close to 1275 pounds. Chico spent nearly his entire life on one ranch ridden by the same cowboy, and was used for all phases of ranch work including riding pens, roping and gathering cattle in the pasture, sorting pairs, ponying colts, and tagging and doctoring calves. Chico is an excellent ranch horse, but he is just as happy riding for pleasure out in the pasture or carrying a flag in your local parade. He would also excel at SHOT or team sorting. He has a good handle and stop, and will sidepass, work off your leg, and open and shut gates better than most horses can. Chico will catch you in the pasture every time you walk out there, and he is not scared or spooked by anything. He has such a smooth jog you could sit to it all day long and never get sore, and will easily move out into an extended trot if you need to cover some ground. His lope is the definition of a rocking horse lope, and he is so easy to ride that beginners and children could safely enjoy him. He crosses water with no problem, no matter how deep it is. Chico is laid back but responsive, and will never go any faster than you ask him to, but has speed if you need it. He can be ridden by himself or in a large group of horses with no problem. He will leave the group willingly and will happily lead or follow. We have ridden him down the road and in traffic and nothing bothers him.
