Carter’s Diamond Smuggler is a 12 yo 15.2 hand TWH gelding that is registered but I have lost the papers. He was bred by and came from Joe Dan Carter of Carter’s Stables in Dresden,TN before Joe Dan retired from training. He was purchased fresh off of pads as a 2 coming 3 yo and then I had him gelded. I bought him as my sons horse when he was 12 and is now in college and 22. Smuggler has been ridden thousands like really thousands of miles in Shawnee National Forest by my son, Father in-law, and myself.... (read more) We have room for 3 horses and have just purchased a 4th so something has to go. Smuggler is all natural gaited and needs no special shoes or bit or anything to make him gate up to 8-10 mph. He is slower walking than our other 3 horses and the primary reason for him being for sale. He has spent the majority of his life on the front but rides better now in middle or back. If you have ever ridden the Shawnee you know he has to be able to cross creeks, water, mud, rocks, logs, walk by other riders, dogs, hikers, four wheelers, and anything else you can imagine including camping at the 9 day trail ride. He is an absolute easy keeper and can stay fat on breathing air. He is not an in your pocket horse but I have not had any problems catching him, all you need do is shake a feed bucket and he comes running. He will walk on a loose rein, neck reins, backs with little pressure and will work off of leg cues. He stands for trimming, farrier, vet, washing, and tacking up. In the video you can notice he will have 1 or 2 times each ride that he will see a booger but only side steps never running or bolting. He is what he is and has been a pleasure to ride. After telling in the video it has been a month since riding him he actually hasn’t been ridden in 2 months when this was filmed. You can come and ride him for yourself or I can meet you close and you can ride him on some trails I don’t sell horses often and ride what I keep so I like to be totally honest and up front that’s why I included all of the video when I uploaded it. He is priced at 2250.00
