I used to own a saddlebred/walker/ paint mix and he was the gentlest and smoothest riding horse I ever owned. He had beautiful gaiting action as well. Even when he was just green broke I could put anyone on him and he would take care of them all day on a trail. He was a breeze to train, I just hopped on him one day and started riding him around the yard and he could of cared less (had lots of ground work previously of course). I sold him to a 12 year old girl when he was 4 and they just love him and take him everywhere. I get updates from the owners all the time.
