Troubadour (aka PT's Bumin Gold DM) is an amazing animal with a fabulous personality and he is truly that special horse of a lifetime. He is a sharp looking buckskin gelding that has an excellent conformation and fabulous gaits. He has four black hooves with matching black socks and a very thick mane and tail. He has a thick neck and a very pretty head to go with his muscular build. He is a beautiful horse to look at and a great horse to ride!
He is a horse that loves to go out and explore on the trails!... (read more) He is tireless and energetic and can easily carry a rider all day. His gaits are incredibly smooth and he is a seasoned trail horse with a head-shaking walk that the show folks love. He has been ridden in the country, through the hills, down busy roads and in the mountains. Troubadour is rock steady and is not spooky acting in the slightest bit. He has an excellent disposition and is very affectionate. He loves people and ground ties well, happily waiting for your return. I have hunted extensively with him and can confidently drop the reins miles from camp or the trailer knowing that he will patiently wait for me without running off.
Troubadour is a Cadillac to ride! He is super smooth to ride and extremely well gaited. He has a slow walk, a nice flat walk and a smooth saddle gait, which he can perform at different speeds as well. He is very easy going and is not in a rush to do anything. Troubadour is happy to just walk along all day along but will get up into his gait for you when you ask him to as well. He is a pleaser and will do what he is asked when you ask him. He stands to mount, walks out on a loose rein, listens to leg and verbal cues, backs up, goes out alone and is great in a group. He is confident and is not bothered by distractions on the trail. He loads and unloads easily and trailers like a pro.
Troubadour is easy to halter, lead, groom, bathe, tack up, worm, he gets along great with other horses. When pastured with other horses, he is calmly dominant. Troubadour has been staked out, picketed and High-Lined for camping and trailers easily. He is a favorite of my farrier and can go barefoot or shod depending on how you use him. I don't do groundwork with my horses and it doesn't matter if it has been 2 days or 2 months since the last time I have ridden, throw a saddle on and head out, he won't let you down.
He is a true trail horse that will cross water, climb steep hills and carefully maneuver his way down. He is very sure footed and does not miss a step. Troubadour leads, follows, stays behind and is great to ride day or night on the trail. In large groups he prefers the lead, as he spent the first years of he life leading trail rides throughout Alabama, Oklahoma and Missouri. He is a wonderful companion on the trail has been used as a field trial and hunting horse for the last 6 years and has been exposed to just about everything, traffic, bikes, dogs, plastic bags, deer, elk, turkeys, cows, farm animals, guns, atv's, bikes and tractors. He has a very sensible mind and a willing attitude. Troubadour is a suited for advanced beginners and up but would be an excellent match for a serious trail or endurance rider. He is solid on the trail and very smooth to ride.
I purchased him 6 years ago from a couple that lived in Oklahoma that were selling him due to an issue he had with the no-see-ums in the area. They are small black gnat-like insects that bite. Troubadour would have excessively bad reactions to their bites especially on his legs. They tried everything they could think of to keep him comfortable but couldn't resolve the issue. I mention this, as he needs a home in the west where these insects aren't a problem.
After reading this, you might be wondering why he is for sale. Our kids are growing and heavily involved in sports and our free time is becoming increasingly dominated by work and family time. We sold our other 3 horses and saved the best for last. He is not getting the time from us that he deserves. I would like to find someone that can enjoy him for the next 10 years as I have for the last 6. Troubadour is offered for sale to an excellent home only as he has earned the right to live with us or another loving family until the end of his days.
