This gelding has lots of trail experience, including back country. Additionally, he has training experience with Horse2Human including private training as well as clinics. He has recently had about 45 days of tune-up training, but was sitting for about 3 years prior.
Owner had full knee replacement surgery and needs to get out of horses completely for his safety.
He is very healthy, sound, and up to date on everything. ”Black” has excellent skills on the ground and under saddle.
As with being a gaited horse, he knows how to walk out, he is smooth and precise everywhere he goes. Listens very well to all aids; reins, legs, seat.
…His responsiveness and willingness to work off the legs and the rein is wonderful. He has the ability to rotate both directions off the reins, rotating firmly on his haunches, with willingness and control. As well as the ability to rotate on his forehand, moving easily off the leg and/or rein.
He also is able to move laterally, bringing haunches in, or to move into a side pass or full pass movement. With his skills, a rider could learn a lot from this horse!
We have gone out on the trails multiple times with and without other horses. He has done absolutely wonderful, and his experience in the woods shows! We encountered creeks, puddles, high dense brush, logs of all sizes, and even swamps. As requested, he moved through each obstacle slowly and carefully. If you’re looking for your next backwoods horse…this is the one! Great price too!
He has been around dogs, some shooting(guns), and has also ponied other horses.
He has a very full mane and tail for those of you that love to primp your horse! ;)
Very sweet, lovebug kinda guy… Loves attention, and needs someone he can call his own!
