Sorrel, He is my brother-i-law's horse so he knows more abou tage but I thin he said he was 9 (he doesnt have internet access)
I have the horse at my place now because I have been riding him since Jason has too many to work alone....
He isnt for a novice...he likes to go
He doesnt like standing still and tends to turn circles...he needs alot of riding...if you put to harsh a bit in his mouth he will sling his head at you, he is smoother at a slow gait but doesnt want to go slow
He needs work, if I didnt have kids that wanted to ride barrels I would buy him because I like his personality
Apparently he was mistreated at one time because he is scared of people, I have to have a bucket of feed to catch him and if you walk to fast around him he backs away from you...i have gotten him to where he bridles easier, at first he didnt want you to touch his ears...he is getting alot better and learning to trust more...he has tried to turn around at things he didnt know about but I have been able to push him forward past them( an old broken down trakhoe really messed him up one day but he walked on by with a few kicks and pops of hte reigns)
I believe if someone put some riding to him, he would make a great horse...he has been on several trail tides, water has not been a problem...Jason is asking $900
