Steele is a brilliant, energetic horse. He has a walk that really covers the ground and when you get him in his fast walk just before the trot, he is a smooth as any gaited horse. His trot and lope are smooth and easy. This horse has the whole package. I rode him bareback yesterday for a three hour trail ride and he was great. i am not so great today though! :-) Watch the video of a river crossing with our horses, I am filming from Steele's back which is the way it always is when we ride. You may wonder why I would sell my awesome horse. My daughter is in need of a vehicle and that is the only reason he is for sale.
