Jericho was rescued from a local auction last year.
He has had some hardships in his life but despite that he is a truly wonderful and willing horse.
He is eager to please and has a very calm attitude. He has had over 60 days professional training and is learning more and more each day.
The trainer thinks he would make a great advanced kids horse as he is a bit on the easy going side but will move out when asked. He doesn't spook easily and gets along with other horses.... (read more)
He does not bite, buck or kick. He will come running in the pasture to greet you at the gate with his tail flying. He was trained in both western and English. He is very easy to catch and is just a joy to be around.
He will load in a trailer, stand for a farrier, bathes and will take the wormer without issues.
Jericho is not a beginner's horse. He will make the best companion for an intermediate rider. He sometimes tends to be a little too easy going and needs a rider who is not afraid to "be the boss" and make him move out into a faster pace when desired.
He trail rides and will ride on the side of the road.
I would still call him green as he is still young but with more miles he will make someone a FANTASTIC partner.
When we rescued Jericho from the Auction he had a flesh wound on one of his back legs. It has healed since then but it did leave a scar; this scar is strictly cosmetic and does not hinder his ability to ride at all. Vet checks are welcome.
This is a gorgeous horse that deserves an awesome home with someone who will use him to his full potential.
Jericho is a kind and gentle soul. We hope to find him an amazing forever home.
Please note that any horses sold/adopted from this rescue will be under contract.
This contract is to ensure that any horse that is adopted from this rescue does not go to slaughter or wind up back in an auction.
