He is gaited. One reason why I say intermediate rider is because he has a forward walk. The other is when you first get on him, he is ready to go somewhere. He is used to doing 20 miles a day. If you ask him to stand after you get on him, then he is just going to want to walk off. He isnt a jerk or anything. After you ride him for 5 minutes and ask him to stand he will. That may go away if someone used him more often then I do. The last time I got on him, he hadnt been ridden for 2 months before that. But like I said before, he was owned by an inexperienced elderly lady. I think they would get along with him, as long as they have a seat, and they can pull him back. He wont run off, he will just want to walk or gait. Let me know if this helps. You can call me and I can explain myself better. Let me know if you would like to come see him. I do have a couple others for sale, that are more the beginner type if you don’t think Cheyenne will work.
That is pretty much what Gizmo was like when I bought him. Actually he still doesn't like to stand still >_< lol. I would really have to go see him and try him out she does have a few other horses that are true beginner like horses. I just don't want to get something that he isn't going to be able to grow with like something that has all woe and no go at all. I know we both want to do mounted shooting sometime along when he gets better at riding.
