Big Paint gelding, 15.3hh. Graceful, strong athletic, sweet, spirited but sensible on a trail. He is built like a tank; solid, great hooves, super easy keeper. UTD on shots and worming. I am heartbroken to sell him but due to back issues I can no longer ride. CJ has too much to offer to sit in the pasture unused. Horses have been my lifelong passion and selling CJ will be the hardest thing I've ever had to do . He was originally trained using Clinton Anderson method. Great ground work, knows his commands and works well in a round pen. He is herd sour and not confident without a riding buddy, which I do not have, but I rode him on a 14 mile solo ride in April, he did amazing! Possible dressage project, certainly has the aptitude for western classes as well, but he is a work in progress, has bucked out of enthusiasm, needs work. He is NOT for a beginner. He is a fantastic companion, full of personality. He reins well, responds to leg pressures, saddles, bridles, shoes very well. He stands tied, and loves grooming. Hates electric clippers. Trailers well. Needs an experienced rider, needs finished and has the potential to be a top performer. He is 9 years old this June. Was raised from a colt by one owner and although 100% broke to ride and trained, he sat in the pasture for too long before I bought him to finish him. He needs someone with an arena or round pen who is skilled in teaching and training, or who has time to ride. CJ it's very sweet-natured he is a sweet loving horse who loves attention. I want him to go to a good home, someone who appreciates his intelligence and willingness to learn. He does not respond well to harsh treatment. I've worked very hard gaining his trust. I do not have the time or skill-set to teach this amazing guy what he wants to learn. Approved home only! If you are experienced, loving and willing to teach CJ so that he can realize his vast potential, text me or email. My asking price is negotiable within reasonable limits for an approved home that will love him.
