12 yr old AQHA gelding trail/ranch horse
12 year old registered AQHA gelding 16.1 hands **price reduced** Has been used as a trail and ranch horse to move cattle and sort pairs (has not been roped off of). UTD on dewormer, vaccinations and farrier. In your pocket type horse, loves attention, good for farrier, no spook, rear or buck. Can sit for months then get on and ride off without any silliness. Good ground covering walk, works off legs and soft mouth. Can ride in hackmore/bosal, snaffle or shanked bit. Selling because I have too many horses and not enough time, with the price of hay I can’t afford to feed a horse I’m not riding. Requires: Quiet, confident rider - he is very sensitive, can be nervous and really feeds off your energy. He will get rattled easily if someone starts getting excited. Does best on pasture or very large corral 24/7 - he is much more relaxed in that environment vs. being stalled and turned out once a day. Because he can be nervous he has been known to sometimes pull back but only when left without any horses or humans around. He does has fluid building up in the tendon sheath on his right hock (came in from pasture like that a couple years ago). He is sound on it and never been lame, however the vet said that wouldn’t stay 100% sound if I used him for hard competition like barrel racing or mounted shooting. I’ve put long days on him working cattle without any problems. He has been thoroughly vetted and found no lameness issues but vet checks are welcome at buyers expense. Located approx 2.5 hours south of Saskatoon. Please contact me with any questions.
