Cow is easygoing and has a great temperament.
The most important thing for you to know is that he has a condition called navicular. It's a degenerative bone disease that is in both of his front feet. In September 2020 he was nerved, so he cannot feel anything in those feet. He is completely sound and we've had no complications, but out of caution I just need you to be aware in case he starts feeling off one day.
He can be ridden but has not consistently been in 2~ years.... (read more) He needs some work to get back where he should be. I know that sounds intimidating, but he is such a great horse and the best one I've owned. In the past 5 years he's been ridden almost exclusively English, but he was raised western. The thing he would need most help with is working on his form, but he knows the basics and does them quite well. I would need him with at least an advanced beginner/intermediate rider because he's sometimes he has an attitude. You have to be assertive with him but not harsh. He not dangerous at all, but if he knows he can get away with certain things he absolutely will do them; like trotting where he wants to in the arena or not respecting you with a lead rope - small things like that. He can't be jumped, and he can be ridden lightly, a max of ~45 minutes about 4x a week.
I really cannot emphasize what a good horse he is, especially considering everything he's had to deal with in the past years. Contact me if you're interested! My goal is just to give him to a good home who will love and take care of him.
