When people talk about solid all around using geldings, horses like Finn are what they are referring to. We would love nothing more than to have a pasture full of horses just like this boy!
We have known Finn for a long time and we are selling him on consignment because we know him well enough to guarantee him like one of our own horses. Trail riding, barrel racing, parades, team penning & sorting, lessons in the ring for beginners - Finn will do it all. If your child (or you) wants to barrel race or gymkhana, you need to look at this horse. Truly great game horses are first and foremost, BROKE horses. Finn is as broke as they come and he rides the way a playday horse should ALWAYS ride. When you want to run, Finn is there for you immediately. When you are done, drop the reins and walk off. No nonsense. Just learning the pattern and want to take it easy? That's fine - he'll lope it at the speed you ask. He may not be the very fastest horse going but he sure is consistent and he is solid.
Do you trail ride alone? Finn goes out alone with no muss and no fuss. He is a WONDERFUL horse to trail ride - no spook, no anxiety over being alone, he knows his job. He is 100% traffic safe as well. Parades - Finn has done them and is a great mount to ride through the streets with commotion!
Finn has an awesome handle and is great fun to ride whether you are a novice or experienced. Do you have a beginner in the family that needs to learn? In the ring, Finn is a kitten and endlessly patient. You can put the novice rider up there without worrying about them bumping him wrong. He is responsive but not reactive making him a wonderful teacher. When you ask correctly, he rewards you with the proper response. If you fumble and bang around a bit, he doesn't care.
As if his riding abilities aren't enough, Finn's ground manners are SUPERB. He comes when he is called and can be handled by any person of any age. He truly likes people and will be a best friend.
We sell a LOT of horses. There are very few that I will run flat out, stop, and put 4yr old Trevor on. This is truly a horse that will fit the needs of essentially every member in the family. Finn is sane and sound with no vices of any kind. He has been dearly loved and is for sale to an AMAZING home only! Finn has had everything a horse could need for 2014 - fresh coggins, Rabies, WNV, Rhino, PHF, teeth floated. He is barefoot and ready for a new person to love him!
