Gentle, quiet and sound 10yr 15 hand bay gelding. “Colby” is super gentle for anyone to ride. We have had all of our guests on him including the cousins from Hawaii and grandma Peg from upstate New York. This horse was raised and worked on the ranch in Oklahoma and was used to sort pens and load cattle trucks. He has been rode on many backcountry trails and has been on overnight hunting and pack trips. He has a nice paced walk, is surefooted and really gets up and down the hills well. Colby rides quietly around our busy neighborhood and is confident with cars, dogs, motorcycles and bicyclists. He is very confident to ride out alone and will happily lead or follow in a group. Colby has a nice handle on him with an easy neck rein and moves easy off of leg pressure. He transitions smoothly through the walk, trot and lope and has a good stop, back up and side pass. He crosses water, bridges and other obstacles with ease and drags, carries and crosses the tarp, carries the flag, and pushes the jolly ball. Strong boned with nice feet. Clips, bathes, ties loads and hauls easily. Excellent ground manners and is good for the farrier. Up to date on vaccines, dental and worming. 100% gentle and sound.
