*SEE VIDEO LINK at bottom of ad for video and lots of pics-most are too big to upload here*I bought this 8 year old reg. racking horse (a Shakers Shocker grandson) hoping he would be a good fit for me and he isnt, tho I really like him and he is sweet and friendly. He's too tall and too fast for me but he is confident beginner/husband older child safe. Ive traced some of his history and know he did come from Big Horse Ranch at some point, then went to a south FL ranch where he was used to work cows, babysit kids (even rode through Mcdy's drive throughs) has had ropes and whips tossed off him, and he did the Cracker Trail ride (across the state of FL) twice. He's ridden confident kids and old men. When I got him he was on his way to being starved, banged up a tad etc. So I got him wormed, vaxed, fed right and he's well on his way to being handsome again. Sells with coggins and reg. Ive had a cowboy friend ride him (and Im no gaited horse expert tho I have owned a few in the past) and I can tell you he has not had gaited training-he has had COWBOY training. He will flat walk, running walk, pace, singlefoot and canter. So tho smooth in the gaiting dept. he needs training if you care about such things. He is light mouthed and has a good handle on him, (neck reins) good whoa and good go, might lean towards the barn but will not act buddy sour or stupid. No buck, no rear, no kick, no bite, easy to catch and handle. I know for a fact former owners as well as my own rider were trying to get him to "sit n spin" tho he is not built for that. Im about to start having a dressage trainer work with him (not to do dressage with, just to keep him riding till sold and not cowboy him). He has only 2 "quirks" 1) he is not a fan of having his ears touched but will let you if you insist and go slow n give him a cookie. 2) he does not stand like a rock for mounting, he cowboy mounts. (working on that one) When I got him I THOUGHT he might be the right horse for me but he's not, he's too tall and too fast and I really want to get another draft pony since I lost mine 2 years ago and thats what my heart has been set on. Im very exp. but not confident anymore and Im a tad fragile and want the pluggy stubby legged close to the ground built like a couch round like a piggy mount...and something also broke to drive as driving is my long time passion and mainly what I do tho I miss riding. Not looking for a purebred but looking for a wide haffie x or fjord x or dutch draft/brabant type build. Im middle aged plus so I lost the velcro off my butt 10 years ago and have no time or patience to work with anything thats young or silly or spooky or dangerous to us older folk :). I just want a lazy walk about pluggy trail riding mount and a nice driver. Nothing fancy just must stand all day for mounting, not be buddy sour at all and have no buck or rear or trantrums. Im also more than happy to sell this fella for cash....but only to a home that WONT neglect or starve him again. He is a good horse, perfect for a confident teen or adult, you can be a beginner to ride him but you must know the basics, be ready to go and have confidence tho you dont have to argue with him, he trys to please but he has been cowboyed probably a bit to much for his age and breed. So serious HONEST folks only contact me if you have a trade...I only do HONEST and I expect the same which is hard to find in the horse world. I might even consider an out of state horse if you wanted to split the shipping on this fella, if you have the right horse (draft pony) for me. Any how please watch his video...I will be adding another when I get a chance, and if serious (cash or trade) lets talk.
