“Al” is a handsome 12-year-old 15 hand palomino gelding. This is a good gentle horse that can be ridden saddled or bareback, bridled or with a halter. He is very willing with a laid back ride, and a forgiving mind. He has no spook on the trails and is very comfortable in the round pen or arena. He is always glad to see you and has no bad habits. I am comfortable recommend- ing this horse for everyone from Beginners to the Ex- perienced riders. He will not get fresh or frisky if turned out for long periods of time.
“Benny” is a 10-year-old, 14h line back dun ranch geld- ing. This is the horse that everyone is looking for, he has a very calm manner, forgiving mind, and willing attitude. He will go anywhere you ask him to go, and will not get mad or frustrated when you make a mistake. He definite- ly is gentle enough for the Beginner and Novice rider and well trained enough to be enjoyed be the Experienced and Intermediate riders. He absolutely no bad habits, and is always glad to see you when you come to get him. He gives you 100% of his attention when you are around him or riding him. “Benny” would be an excellent asset to any family, stable, or ranch, and a pleasure to own and ride. He does not get fresh or frisky or want to buck if turned out for long periods of time.
“Flash” is an 11-year-old 14.3 hand APHA registered palomino gelding. This horse came from the area near Bastrop, Texas and has been used mainly for trail rid- ing. He is a family type horse, that is super friendly, and glad to see you at any time. He has a very laid back, super willing, and very forgiving attitude. He is definitely gentle enough for the Beginner rider and rides comfortable enough to satisfy the experienced rider. He has a good rein, good stop, and will back up when asked. He loads well, and is easy to shoe and saddle. There is nothing fancy about the way this horse rides, and would probably not make a good per- formance horse, but is exceptionally nice on the trails. He does not get fresh or frisky when turned out for long periods of time. If you are looking for a really good fam- ily type horse that loves trails and wants to get along with everyone, here he is.
“JP” is a 15.1 hand 12-year-old dun ranch gelding. This horse is all business and gives you 100% of his attention while you are riding him. He will go where you point him and respond to his riding cues in a prompt athletic manner. This is a good solid horse that rides good and quiet, and will give you a problem free days work whether on the ranch or on the trails. I think this horse would be safe enough for the Beginner riders with basic riding skills, I also feel that the Intermediate and Experienced would enjoy him as well. If you are looking for a nice, tall, well mannered, good looking gelding then don’t pass him up. I do not believe this horse will get fresh or frisky or buck with you if turned
out for long periods of time.
“Geronimo” is a handsome 15.3h, 9-year-old Black and White paint gelding. He is a Certified Police and Rescue horse that has been used extensively by a supervisor/ teacher to help in certifying other horses. He is an ex- cellent trail horse and is used to being around crowds, lights, and loud noises. He is only for sale because the instructor that owned and rode him is short and gets tired getting on and off of him. He has absolutely no bad habits and can be ridden by anyone who has basic knowledge about riding. I would not recommend him for young chil- dren or the most beginner of riders because of his prompt response to riding cues. If you are looking for a good, big, strong, gentle, eye-catching All Around horse, you have just found him. This horse is being sold on consignment, and all reasonable offers will be considered. I will guar- antee this horse with my 30 day exchange option guar- antee. “Geronimo” does not get fresh or frisky or want to buck if turned out for long periods of time.
“Tucker” is a 8-year-old 14h chestnut Arabian gelding. If you are an Arabian enthusiast, you will absolutely love this horse. He is very controllable and has finely tuned riding cues and skills. Excellent neck rein, stop, back up, and will also move off of leg pressure. Tucker will not be enjoyed by the beginner or intermediate rider due to their lack of skill and knowledge it takes to ride this horse. He is definately safe and gentle for anyone, but will intimi- date a Beginner and Novice riders. He has absolutely no bad habits and will not get fresh or frisky if turned out for long periods of time. His former owner was 80+ years old and had gotten to the point of no longer being able to ride. I feel that this horse has great potential as a performance horse, show horse, or endurance trail horse. This is not a horse for everyone, but he’s a real find.
