11 year old grade quarter horse gelding. Around 16 hands and very solid. Easy keeper. Very pleasant and friendly on the ground. 60 days training for Western Pleasure (for 4-H). The trainer thought he had a lot of potential. Has not been ridden since March. My 17 year old son lost interest in horses and I have health issues so I can't work with him at all. Must go before winter.
Cons: 1) Bucks. Seriously. Has been ok in the past if ridden regularly. 2) Hooves chip easily especially on our dry, sandy pasture. Leans on the farrier. 3) Doesn't trailer well in a stock trailer. Seems to be ok in a regular slant load horse trailer.
Pros: 1) A real sweetheart if you aren't trying to ride him. 2) Built like a tank and an easy keeper. 3) Free!
No riding here because of potential liability. Email only.
*** I at least give the poster credit for honesty~! He bucks, has bad hooves, bad for the farrier, doesnt load well... AND you cant ride him there because of potential liability? I think I will pass on this one!
