14.1 hand, 6 year old DALES bred Gelding

$ 5,000
Asking 5k for "Versace" (barn name). A well built Dale's gelding is a rare find. He is sired by: Rosebarr Gambler and foaled from a mare named Wildcreek Sugar Magnolia. CAN BE registered and new owner will get to pick his name. Versace is an excellent representation of a Dales breed. He is well put together, muscular, smart, gentle, affectionate, calm, and yet he has confidence on the trails like he has done it a lot longer than one summer. He has gotten use to traffic while being rode last year along with our seasoned horses. He is an easy catch because he comes right to you the minute he sees you. He has good ground manners, leads on the trail rides or follows in the back of the group when asked. He is 14.1 hands. He is a great size for people that prefer to mount from the ground without assistance. He trusts his riders, has his ears forward and displays a willing disposition. No bad habits. He has had 60 days of arena work with 6 months on trails with light traffic. He doesn't neck rein 100% yet but, if I worked with him on that, he would pick it up quickly. Although we only trail ride here, he will trot and canter easily when asked. (video of him on Cathy's Corral facebook page). He hasn't tried to kick, bite, buck or rear on us and we have owned him for over a year now. He has had only 2 owners (myself and one other). I know his previous owner personally and he has been well cared for during his 6 years of life. We own a trail riding business (Cathy's Corral Horseback Riding Services is on Facebook) but, with us getting older, we are slowing down and reducing our herd of horses/ponies from 14 horses to 5 or less. Versace gets his hooves trimmed every 6 to 7 weeks, has never had any illnesses, injuries, and has never been lame. Vaccines, worming and coggins are up to date too. Vet checks are always welcome at buyers expense. We guarantee him 100% sound. He has been cared for by an RN (with almost 50 years of equine expereince) and her husband. Versace is such a joy to ride or just spend time with. The only reason he is listed for sale is because we are closing our horseback riding business and selling the majority of our horses. If interested, please call or text (we prefer text because cell signals frequently drop calls at our farm) Our cell is: - Click here to reveal phone number - 2098. We are located in the upper part on Indiana, close to the Michigan state line. Also, we would like to say that Versace is in the middle to low end of the pecking order with our horses. He loads in a trailer without problems, bathes, stands for the farrier and has always been barefoot without shoes. He is sure footed on hills and slippery trails. He enjoys the trail rides. We use a gentle Mylers level 1 bit, a nice thick, 1 inch classic equine saddle pad and, a saddle with a wide 8 inch gullet. Even beginner riders feel safe and comfortable while trail riding with this sweet gelding . Serious inquiries only please. Reasonable offers will be considered.
Thank you for your interest!
