Sweet Bay Paso Fino 4 year old gelding for sale. Stands just under 14h. Has had 90 days professional training at the beginning of 2013 and 120 days trail riding experience over the spring and summer in the Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Easy to catch, clip, load, shoe. Will go anywhere you point him, will lead or follow. He is tough as a pine knot and can pull hills all day if you want him to. Perfect mount for a small lady or a youth rider who has had some experience. I give his temperament a 4 only because he is a Paso Fino and young, I am tempted to call it a 3. I have ridden him to keep him quiet and calm, instead of riding him hard and fast. He is easy to work with on the ground and nice to be around. Very hard not to spoil rotten because he is so cute. If I had grandchildren in my foreseeable future I would be keeping him as he would be perfect.

Do you have any video's of Doble? Does he have a nice smooth gait? Is he spooky out on the trail? Thank you.
I do have a few video's of Doble, but they are only of us working with him on the ground. I don't have any of us riding him. I had surgery recently and cannot ride for several weeks or I would make one and send to you. But I can send what I have. The video's are on my iphone. I am not very "electronic" but I think I could text message or email them to you. I think his gait is nice. I ride both a paint horse, non gaited, and a Missouri Fox Trotter. He falls in between those two. I have not had an achy back after 3 hour rides on him so that is good. He is not spooky at all on the trail. I didn't know what to expect when I first put him out on them as he had been in a fancy show horse barn for 90 days under training. But he has been great. Either the first or second ride on the trail we scared up deer while in the lead, and he did not jump sideways or bolt. Just stopped and watched, then went on. His very first ride along the Current River, when his eye caught the water sparkling or moving he did jump to the side once. That was in March within the first week of being on trails. He has not done that since, along the river or anywhere else. In fact, when our MFT's see a tent or campers and balk at going, I bring Doble up front and lead the way....he doesn't care.
