Registered and Certified, 5 1/2 year old, naturally-gaited Rocky Mountain gelding. He is the classic dappled, dark chocolate color with flaxen mane and tail. He was originally bred as a show horse in Kentucky with a lineage that goes back to some of the Rocky Mountain Foundation horses. But, due to no fault of his own, he was primarily used as a trail horse instead. He was raised and trained by a young lady and her trainer.
I bought him about 6 weeks ago with the plan to use him as a trail horse, but since I am in my senior years, he is a little too energetic for me. I have saddled him and done some ground work with him, but I have not ridden him. I would recommend that he have a "tune up" since I do not know when he was ridden last. He would do best with a confident rider that has experience with young horses and gaited horses.
He came from a large farm in Kentucky to being alone here in Colorado and I don't think he is happy about that. I think he would do better with at least one other horse as a companion. He would probably do well at a boarding facility too.
He is up to date on vaccinations, worming, teeth and hooves. He will be sold with a valid Coggins, Registration (and Certification) papers, Colorado Brand Inspection and a Health Certificate (if needed for out-of-state travel).
