“Cherokee” is a 13-year-old, 15-hand gorgeous Appa- loosa gelding. He has mainly been used as a lesson and trail riding horse, He is very quiet and gentle on the ground and under saddle and can be easily ridden by everyone from Beginners to the most Experienced rider. He responds to all his riding cues in a quiet, smooth, easy manner, making him effortless to ride. He is very forgiving and does not get upset when you make a mis- take and is very willing to do whatever you ask of him. This is a good, safe, gentle horse that would be an excel- lent asset to any family stable or ranch. He definitely will not get fresh or frisky or want to buck if turned out for long periods of time.


“Sampson “ is a 12-year-old, 14.2-hand brown gelding that comes from a ranching background. This is a well mannered horse that is willing to do whatever you ask of him in a prompt smooth easy manner. He has a very willing and forgiving mind and does not get upset or baffled when you make a mistake. He has an excel- lent saddle gait that lets you cover lots of ground in a smooth easy manner. He has a really good rein and stop and back up and would work well for Beginners up to Experienced riders, whether riding in the lesson pen or on the trails. This horse has good bone and a thick body and yet is not very tall which makes him very versatile for small riders and also heavier riders. I like this horse real well and think he would be an asset to anyone that wants nice gentle good riding horse.


“Buckaroo” is a 10-year-old, 14-hand dun gelding. This is a good all around horse that has been used for les- sons and trail riding. He is really friendly and likes at- tention and is willing to do anything you ask of him. He has a good rein, stop, and back up on him and would be suitable for Beginner, Novice, Intermediate, and Experienced riders. He has no bad habits and is safe and gentle to be around both on the ground and under the saddle. He has a nice easy moving saddle gait that makes trail riding a real pleasure. If you are looking for a big horse in a small package that is easy to get on and off of, here he is. I think he would be a problem free horse and a definite asset to any family stable or ranch. He does not get fresh or frisky or want to buck if turned out for long periods of time.
