Achilles is a superstar. He was adopted in mid April and had a natural affinity for people. He loved being petted by people even while he was 'wild'. This guy understands that people do nice things. He had never over-reacted for me and has a beautiful calm temperament. He is by far the most easy going mustang I have ever gentled. He catches even in giant pastures, halters, leads, trailer loads, ties, lunges, has had all 4 feet trimmed by the farrier easily (and without sedation!... (read more)) He loves water - especially on hot summer days - and will stand nicely to be hosed off. He had 4 rides with a pro so that i could verify that his lovely temperament carried over to undersaddle. He is still a green horse so if you are only an advanced beginner/ early intermediate rider you should start him under the good supervision of a trainer. But he is uncomplicated. He is suitable as a trail horse, but not for endurance. He shows the aptitude to be an extremely steady mount. Achilles will sell under BLM contract. This means that you will need to be approved by the BLM and pay a $25 transfer fee. You will also need to give me references from a veterinarian, a farrier, and a trainer (that I will check) before I approve the transfer.
