Amazingly calm 2.5 year old paint gelding. Being sold as "grade". All around ranch horse and reining in his back ground. This guy is going to be big! He is already starting to fill out and get stocky - he is bum high. 14.3 at the withers and 15.1 at the rump.
Duke is a real thinker (in a good way) doesn't blow up or bolt, sometimes I forget I am working with a young horse - he just takes everything in stride!. The pictures of him packing the saddle is the first time he has worn a saddle.... (read more) (saddled pics - I am 5'11 with long legs) He is so quiet and a pleasure to work with!
Here is where his training is at as of June 26/12 - he is being worked with on a regular basis:
Loads quietly into a trailer.
Lifts all feet
Gives easily to pressure
Has worn all tack (snaffle bit)
Done some ground driving
Been sat on bareback and mounted under saddle
Lunges well in both directions (w,t,c)
Friendliest guy in the field - very easy to catch
Does not appear to be herd bound
This guy is worth a look! The ONLY reason I am selling him is I have sold my place and Im moving to the lower mainland. I can only afford to take one horse with me :( Open to offers for the "right" home as this is more important than money.
