*VIDEO AVAILABLE* Gorgeous 12yr 15.1 hand AQHA palomino gelding. “Sonny” is an outstanding gentle horse that has been used on the ranch, in the arena, and on the trail. He has been used outside to gather cattle, has done some ranch roping and started roping the hot-heels. He rides great in the arena and moves out nicely with an easy one hand neck rein, moves off of leg pressure to side pass and open gates, has slow turnarounds and a good stop. Sonny has a fast paced walk, a comfortable trot and a very smooth lope. He takes both of his leads and transitions smoothly. He is a very confident horse and crosses obstacles with ease. He will cross bridges, tarps, water, and ditches and will also happily ride while carrying flags, tarps, beach umbrellas, a sack full of cans, carries the saddlebags and pushes the jolly ball. Sonny walks out nicely on trail and is great in steep, rough country. We have rode him out in large groups and he is also confident riding alone. He is traffic safe and rides great around our neighborhood with barking dogs, motorcycles, and bicyclists. Loads, hauls, clips, and ties easy and stands quiet for the farrier, grooming, saddling and mounting. Sonny is a very gentle, sound and healthy horse with excellent conformation, good bone and strong feet. $6800.
