Kota is a 15.3 HH, 12 year old, Dappled Palomino Walkalossa Gelding that is built to carry a heavier rider. Kota has not only been used as an trail riding horse his entire life he’s also trained to work in a wagon and drive anywhere, he has been used to pull wagons full of hay to bring in the barn, pull sleds, & plow up a garden! I can honestly consider Kota a confidence booster type horse for any level of rider, he’s a well mannered gelding that prefers to walk on a loose rein! He absolutely loves attention & if he’s turned out to pasture in 40 acres, if he sees or hears you he will come as fast as he can run to meet you, same goes in a stall he meets you at the door pretty much putting his head in the halter! Kota is a rare find in the horse world today, a honest good mannered trail horse... he will go wherever his head is pointed without hesitation trusting his rider. Kota has been at the same home the majority of his life before coming to our farm , from some personal friends of ours the only reason we ended up with this sweet boy is because his wagon partner passed away & the elderly couple really don’t trail ride anymore & they knew we would take Kota and find him a loving home. So we are doing just that , he would have a forever home here with us if he wasn’t so tall. Kota was already well trained before coming to us but I like to take all of my horses through my training program trail riding in rough rugged terrain, introducing them to tarps being flapped around them, guns shot from their back & also natural horsemanship training.. Kota took to all of these new things as if he had seen them his entire life, he’s absolutely a non spooky nervous acting horse & takes to new things naturally. Kota has been on several overnight camping trips and has several years of trail experience. This gentleman listens to all voice commands, neck reins, backs up & will somewhat canter, but a little iffy since he has never been asked to do this before coming to our home. He will stand to be mounted however long it takes, Kota \is a horse that has patience no stepping around or twisting! In our video we have the proof you can see all the things we tell you about in the description of our horses to prove how they handle!

We have personally trail ridden Kota several miles in trails by himself or with a group of friends he does great & acts the same with either, Doesn't mind being in the back of the group, leading or in the middle! It doesn't get too steep or rough, will cross/go anywhere you point his head without any hesitation crossing downed trees cut up, water, mud puddles, ditches & the rocky steep terrains that we have here in Southeastern Kentucky, while still being sure footed & takes his time with every step completely trusting the rider to guide the way! Has been ridden along the country roads around our home where he has encountered farm equipment, other livestock running alongside the road(cows, horses, goats jumping around), dogs running out barking, loud vehicles passing, ATV's. Well behaved getting a haircut, taking baths, tacking up, loading & unloading in a trailer, being shod (has 4 new kegs all around).

We spend time with our horses training them with natural horsemanship methods creating a human animal relationship with respect and trust from our horses!

* Of course NO bad habits/vice we have ever seen out of him(rearing up, kicking, bucking, biting, barn weaving, cribbing or barn/buddy sour) These type of issues with horses never make it to our program!

* Call today and schedule to take this fella out on a real trail ride with us, we can leave directly from our farm & go into a part of the Daniel Boone National Forest!
