Ooooh. He is quite the looker!I'm glad he's also trained to do something and appears to be very well trained too! From the pictures, his bond with his owner seems sooo amazing. He is definitely a beautiful horse.

I wonder what happened to his brother? It doesn't say, but he died less than 2 weeks ago.

I just love looking at all his postings, in fact I have the one with him and the cat as my wall paper. We has a wonderful paint and she is very colorful but I couldn't resist Ivory Pal.

Thumbs down I disagree.

He is a nice horse, but he is too rough of a ride for a walking horse. I have been around walking horses enough over the years to know that. I have never seen a walking horse move as stiff as Ivory Pal. His rider, Rafael, bounces around all the time, even at a walk. Sure, Ivory Pal looks nice, but he moves like crap. He is WAY too stiff to be comfortable ride, which is what walking horses have been bred for. Watch some of his videos and you will see what I mean.

It's not about how he moves it's about the bond between horse, owner and how the horse interacts with other animals. Who hasn't ridden a rough riding horse. I remember one quarter horse that looked real nice and smooth a real nice ride but for some reason when someone got on his back he would arch it I don't know how but he did and he was like riding a camel. I didn't believe it when his owner told me this until I got on him lol.

No doubt, Ivory Pal is a great looking horse and with an incredible disposition, with the signature smooth gait of a TWH. In Florida, I competed against him and he was all business and had as good and smooth gait of any TWH I have been around or competed against. In addition to winning all his rail and versatility classes, IP always won the water glass classes against lots of other TWHs which is the ultimate testament of a smooth, TWH Gait. Not only have I seen his smooth gaits in person, but you can see his smooth gaits on his videos on YouTube and FB and unlike someone mentioned previously, no, his rider is NOT bouncing in the saddle. Plus he does it with no mechanical gimmicks, all natural & barefoot. The icing on the cake is the fantastic relationship and bond he has with his owner, Rafeal, who is a gentleman and very humble.

Wow I can't believe how well behaved he is being a stallion and a Tennessee Walker which I have heard can be high strung and he is so well behaved he can be ridden bitless. Wow. I love all natural and what that are promoting its really great.
