Man of Cool Steel “Winter” is a 2014 Grulla Blanketed ApHC Gelding 15.3+ hands and 1250#
5-panel N/N.... (read more) Solid, correct and big boned, big and hard footed. Clean legs, easy keeper, no vices.
Winter is the whole package; solid build, willing disposition, athleticism and stunning color! Bought directly from the ranch/breeder as a yearling. Winter was brought along slow and correct and tons of exposure. Has a great handle, smooth transitions, moves off leg, seat, neck rein, and all the buttons to get a job done. Yields smoothly off leg, side passes, pivots, supple and soft-mouthed on the bit too.
Excellent ground manners and in-hand proficiency, he’d do well in Showmanship as-is matching your pace and direction, pivots and backs off no pressure.
Winter ground ties, if you need to step off to pick up a downed barrel etc. and he waits patiently for you to return.
Sides up to you for mounting too, will pick you up anywhere and on both sides! Mounting block, fence, boulder, trailer, he move sun and waits still-footed til you’re secure and ready to ride out.
He has been hauled, exposed and also competed in several trail obstacle challenges and achieved several champion and reserve titles in ETS events. The commotion and chaos surrounding Rodeos doesn’t phase him and has been enter in Gymkhana speed events as well, clocking respectable barrel racing times without being pushed. He is calm and focused on his rider, walks in quietly, does his job, and can turn around and walk a quiet trail etc. very level headed.
Friendly and loves people, will ride out alone or in a group, not buddy sour, through neighborhoods, camping, traffic/quads/bikes, water, tarps, etc. he’s confident and covers ground with ease. Can ride him right through town, streets, sidewalks, drive throughs and he enjoys himself every bit as much as you do! On the trail he crosses rivers, has been swimming, picks his footing through desert, rocks, branches, works his way through the brush and shrubs with ease.
Personality to boot, give him a horse soccer ball and he’s entertaining himself rolling it through the pasture. He’s not a dead beat, willing and wants to please, give him a job and he’s happy to do it. Can go any direction, show, trails, barrels, or could be finished on roping or other cattle disciplines, he has the power and is ready to find his next companion to take on the world!
Has current Coggins completed 2/23/23, vaccines annually, farrier trimmed 2/9/23.
