Nice kids horse, not for $15,000 though.
But why is he advertised as a ranch horse? Did I miss something?
Gentle does not always translate to a ranch horse and ranch horse does not always mean a good kid broke horse.
I have done a lot of desensitizing nicely built, sound, pretty horses who trail ride and know the basics in the arena and whom are regularly ridden by my young neighbors. Its kind of a hobby. Sell them for somewhere in the $1,500 range, usually close to what I have into them. Nothing about this horse screams that he is in any different of a boat. Honestly, most of the horses that we sell do not have to "run into" a canter like this gelding and they stop quicker. They've trotted ground poles and since our area is big on speed events most are started on barrels and poles too. BUT, it isn't to say that he doesn't seem like a nice horse and as many have said, I suppose he is worth exactly what someone will pay for him.
