Silver bay Mustang cross gelding
FREE TO GOOD HOME. There's nothing wrong with him, I only dropped the price because the rain over the weekend turned half of my pasture to a total mud pit and I had to move all of my horses into the other half of the pasture but it's too many in a small space so this guy needs to go ASAP.
Phantom is a 4 year old (born 4-18-09), 13.1hh, silver bay gelding. He looks like a Rocky Mountain Horse, but I know the girl who bred him, and she told me that his mom was a Welsh Cob and dad was a BLM Mustang. Phantom is very well put together and is nice and stocky. He is a fancy mover and may be gaited.
I have started him on Clinton Anderson fundamentals ground work and he is doing very well. He knows the basics of lunging, yielding hind and forequarters and backing up on the ground. He leads, loads, walks through water, over tarps, over wooden pallets, over any obstacle put in front of him. I have introduced him to a tarp, plastic bag, umbrella, hula hoop, cowboy curtain, and jolly ball. He was a little worried about the plastic bag for the first couple minutes and then was just fine with it. He didn't like the jolly ball above him but was fine with rolling it on the ground and bouncing it. I've carried a ladder while also leading him and he didn't mind that either. He will test someone new on the ground so he is not a horse for a beginner. But if you know what you're doing, you'll love this horse! He is very smart and fun to work with!
I was told when I got him that he is green broke. He was saddled and ridden in both a western saddle and bareback with just a halter in his previous homes. NOTE: I HAVE NOT RIDDEN HIM MYSELF SO I CANNOT ATTEST TO HIS UNDER SADDLE TRAINING.
You can see several videos of the ground work and desensitizing I've done on my youtube channel. Just added three new ones on 12/18. http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?o=U
I DO NOT HAVE A TRAILER, SO I CANNOT DELIVER. EMAIL OR TEXT 812-221-1127 (NO PHONE CALLS PLEASE, I DO NOT GET SERVICE WHERE I LIVE). I AM AVAILABLE FOR YOU TO PICK HIM UP, ANY DAY BEFORE NOON.
