Sept 2009 has been doing very well in his refresher course under saddle. appaloosa gelding UTD on all shots and deworming, sweet boy. Was in foster care until May 2009, foster Mom's notes: 15 hands. He is very very good with all other horses I have had. He is not strong headed at all with the different horses here and does have a playful nature , even with the top quarter horse. He is very very gentle. I think he would be great in this role but I am somewhat biased. If he is going to be ridden he definitely needs a bit more time with a patient teacher. Depending on the age of a child, and his/hers riding abilities. Since he lost the total vision in his right eye he has become a bit cinchy, not knowing what is "all around him". We have ridden him on trails last year.
