When we have had Apache out trail riding, almost every single time, and well over 30 times, someone comes up asking if we would sell him and the answer for the past 5 ½ years has been “no, sorry”. Today, we are sad to say, “yes” he is offered for sale because of a serious 4-wheeler leg injury my husband sustained. Apache is my husband’s personal horse who has patiently and safely carried Dennis over many trail miles every year in Eminence, MO, Kentucky, Iowa, Illinois, Shawnee National Forrest, and America By Horseback rides. Since we bought him green broke in 2017, he has been the most wonderful horse. Absolutely no faults whatsoever. No buck, kick, biting, cribbing, meanness, barn sour and does not lay on gates or tear-up equipment. He circles a mounting block and stops and patiently waits for a rider to mount. Apache rides with a loose reign, turns at the touch of his neck and he knows foot cues, but my husband never rides with them. Apache is guaranteed sound and healthy. He has never been sick, foundered, no skin problems, and he has nice big feet to support him for the rest of his life. He is a sure-footed trail horse deluxe and will willingly tackle and complete any trail no matter how challenging. He has swam across the Current River in deep water and climbed very rocky terrain in Garden of the Gods at Shawnee and rode for many hours-at-a-time out on trails. He is easy to catch from pasture, jumps in the trailer, bathes, clips, saddles, grooms, stands quietly when sprayed, and the farrier trims or shoes him untied while Apache lifts his feet for him untouched. We don’t have cattle, but he was used to daily check cows right before we bought him and he is quiet when we have ridden through cow herds on rides. Apache is safe for a child who knows nothing about riding or for us grandparents who own him. He has had our neighboring vet’s girls ride him when on visits to the barn and our grandgirls all over him. He is traffic safe, highway and tractor safe, lawn mower and ATV safe and was ridden in the Ft. Madison Iowa Pro Rodeo parade three times taking it all in patiently and calmly with the band blaring right in front of him. This horse is strong and big enough for any cowboy’s work or safe and beautiful enough for the show ring or trail rider. He is UTD on dental, shoes, vacs, worming, health paperwork, registration certificate, pre-sale vet exam, and negative Coggins. I don’t have to say too much about how he looks, the photos and video speak for themselves. He is such a beautiful 15-2 hand, confirmationally correct and perfectly balanced Appaloosa! His blanket is perfect, he has a baby-doll head, kind eyes, lots of perfectly marked chrome, a very muscular body, and a FULL mane and tail to boot. He has a laid-back, patient, loving personality with no funny business and he rides like a dream. Well, is he a dream of a horse?? You bet your bottom dollar; I do not lie. And when he is loaded to leave the farm, I will definitely be crying. Karen 309/221-7084/ our email address. I am working outside a lot, please leave a message or email with your question and I will return soon. This wonderful horse deserves to go to a great home where he will be loved.
