Rocket is looking for his next kiddo! If you’re looking for a very safe, calm, trustworthy beginner horse then Rocket is your man. We have only owned him this summer, but he has brought my daughter far enough in the months we have had him that she is ready for a step up horse. He is 18, stands 15.2 ish so stop big enough for an adult, retired rope horse, he spent his life before us dragging calves in the branding pen. He has spent the last 4 months toting my 5 year old and her friends around for their daily dose of pony rides.... (read more) He’s a solid 87 second barrel horse, even more impressive pole horse! My daughter can climb on him from the ground, and jump off his back or slide off his butt without him moving an inch. One hand neck reins and rides in a hackamore, bottom of the pecking order. If you want something you can stick your kid on and not worry about, Rocket is your man. He much prefers to walk/trot, but can be coaxed into a lope. Been hauled to play days and trail rides this summer. No spook whatsoever, stands tied all day long, trailers fine though gets a little nervous when on his own, Trims great. He is a true babysitter horse and is priced accordingly. Endless pictures and videos available. Current coggins. Would entertain trades for a step up kids barrel/play day horse that is willing to go fast but only when asked. Located Leonardville KS.
Not in a hurry to move him, good home is a MUST with Vet references. He’d make a perfect lesson horse!
