Cuzco is a 3 year old gorgeous buckskin gelding. He is good on the trail, roads and traffic, water, etc. He has so much heart and try and really aims to please no matter what it is I’m asking. I have owned Cuzco since he was born and also have two sisters of his. Good friends of mine own his sire who is proving to be a phenomenal 1D barrel horse and roping horse and now producer as well with his oldest crop being 4 year olds this year. Cuzco has not seen a round pen since his very first ride and I do not lunge him before I get on. He also has not just been ridden in the arena. He has been hauled a ton and rides down the road or on the trail just quiet as can be either alone or with others. Cuzco will make a great youth horse in the future and is the perfect size to do it all. I have thrown a rope off of him but not roped anything since he is just 3 and I’m not a roper anyways. Cuzco is learning to be very correct and picks up his leads, has the start to a spin (still walks out of if and I do a lot of disengaging his hindquarters to help him along especially to the right), side passes fairly well, and is starting to look for the stop. I haven’t really drilled him on anything and have just touched on it to let him build his confidence in all aspects. I’m not one to ride a horse 7 days a week. I want them to like to work and therefore try harder for me when I do ask it of them. He absolutely LOVES cattle and was so fun to work at my friends place the first time. He also rides bareback with just a halter and is light and responsive. Cuzco is ridden with just a smooth mouth snaffle and is respectful of pressure. He also just got his first set of shoes and was a very good boy! I would love to see him go to someone that will finish him out all around and eventually be a youth horse. Cuzco would also be a really nice colt for a youth rider to bring along with guidance. He is very forgiving and easy for his age and the amount of time he has on him so far. There aren’t many you can let sit for a week and go step on and ride off without a hitch.
Update: Cuzco is trotting a nice barrel pattern and really taking to cattle!!
