“Bush” is a 10 year old, 14.3 hand super gentle, well trained Palomino ranch gelding that comes from a large working cattle ranch. This is a horse that can be enjoyed and appreciated by the Begin- ner, Novice, Intermediate, and Experienced riders. This is a good well disciplined, respectful horse that will give his rider 100% of his attention. He has no bad habits, and is easy to catch, load, shoe, saddle, and mount. He does not spook or shy in crowds, in the pens, in the pasture, on the trails, nor does he spook from wild life or livestock. He has not gotten fresh or spooky after being turned out, and will ride with a loose rein, and does not change the gait you have him in unless you ask him. He has a good one-hand neck-rein, stop, and back-up. This would be an excellent horse that can be used for work and pleasure.
“Kato” is a 10 year old, 14.2 hand gorgeous, well trained, and gentle grey gelding. This horse came from a small
family ranch in the South Texas. He is gentle enough and well behaved enough for the beginner and novice riders, and well trained enough to be appreciated and enjoyed by the intermediate and experienced riders. He is a good all- around kind of a horse, who does not spook or shy from wild life, in crowds, in the pens, in the pasture, or on the trails. He has not gotten fresh or frisky after I have turned him out in the pasture, and is easy to catch, load, shoe, saddle, and mount. I have not found him to have any bad habits. He rides with a loose rein, and has a good one- hand neck-rein, stop, and back-up. This is a flashy horse with very nice conformation, and a friendly disposition, and gives his rider all of his attention. This horse will make someone very proud.
“Shilo” is a seven year-old, 14.3 hand tri-colored, well trained paint gelding with absolutely no bad habits, gentle and well trained enough to be appreciated and enjoyed by everyone from Beginner to Experienced riders. He has a good one-hand neck-rein, stop, and back-up, and will ride with a loose rein, maintaining the gait you have him in until you ask him to change. He does not spook or shy from wildlife, livestock, crowds, nor in the pens, nor in the pas- ture, or on the trails. He has not gotten fresh or frisky when I have had him turned out, and is easy to catch, load, shoe, saddle, and mount. He gets along well with other horses. This horse has had a lot of good seasoning riding time, by good riders, and has never been allowed to know what a bad habit is. He will give you 100% of his respect and attention. This is a good all-around kind of a horse that will do for work or pleasure
