“Smoki” is a really nice, well broke, 15 hand, 6 year old gelding. This is a really nice, polite, laid-back horse that can be ridden and enjoyed by all classes of riders, from Beginners to Experienced. He has a good one-hand neck rein, stop, and back-up, and does not spook in crowds, in the pens, in the pasture, or on the trails. He gives you 100% of his attention and respect. This is a horse with no bad habits, and always gives you control, and has a lot of potential to be whatever you want him to be. I think he would be an excellent asset to most families, guest ranches, or working ranches, or even a performance horse.
