15 Year Old GRADE Blue Eyed Sorrel Paint Gelding
Located in Brighton, Missouri
Intermediate (Step Up Horse) to Experienced Rider
Potential Jobs: Trail Horse, Drill Team Horse, Pack Horse, Ranch Horse, Playday Horse
This gelding would be for an intermediate rider or a great step up horse for a kid that wants to learn leg pressure. Walks, trots, lopes, backs, stops. Stands for farrier/vet. Current on worming and coggins. Stands for mounting/unmounting. Stands tied. Stands hobbled. Bathes. Does flying lead changes. Starting to spin off leg pressure. Neck reins and plow reins. Can crack a bull whip off him. He is easy to catch with grain. Traffic safe. Rides in an O-ring bit. Has had breeching, back girth and a crooper on him. Crosses bridges, ditches, and water. This horse goes where he’s pointed.
This is a GREAT trail horse. Easy handle and good temperament. Very QUIET!!!! He’s in the middle of the pecking order. He’s turned out with about 15-20 horses and easy to catch. He’s not one to start anything, but he will hold his own. This horse has been exposed to just about everything. Rides alone or in the group. He can ride in any position in a group, but prefers the lead and rides away from the group. He has some get up and go, so NOT a dead head.
Has been started as a pack horse. Very QUIET!!!! He took the pack great and didn’t give us any trouble. He hauled fencing equipment half a mile. He stood hobbled while fixing fence and running a chainsaw cutting limbs off the fence. Everything new thrown at this horse doesn’t seem to bother him. He’s showed no signs of spookiness.
Loads in 2 horse trailer and stock trailer. Has been on trail rides in Busiek and around home. He rides rough trails, in fields, down gravel roads, in the pasture or on pavement roads. This horse has ponied other horses and colts. He has been used as a wrangler horse on trail rides. Has been used to wrangle a herd of horses (15-20 horses). Has been used to check fence. He has had a rope thrown off him and he doesn’t mind it. We haven’t put any weight to the rope. Has been rode on barrels, flags, and poles on our grounds. Not in competition with us. Has been used to round up other horses.
With his previous owners he was used as a Drill Team horse, was also ridden in an Inauguration Parade for President Bush and in regular parades. They also used him as a lesson horse to teach kids how to ride and his last job was being a Rodeo Queen’s mount.
This horse is a one of a kind and can go many directions. You can get him back into Drill Team or use him as an awesome Playday horse. Or just use him on the trails as a trusty mount or a good pack horse. He has so much potential. You can’t find many horses like this nice quiet gelding. He has the looks, qualities and skills just like any performance horse. Don’t let him get away. If interested please email/personal message or call/text 417-298-9172. If you have any questions feel free to ask. This horse is cross posted on several sites.
