Smarty is an APHA 10 year old 15.1 hand brown tobiano gelding. He is super well bred with bloodlines going back to the million dollar sire and cutting horse champion, Color Me Smart. Smarty is well trained, gentle and fun to ride. He has a good one hand neck rein and moves off of light cues. He collects up well, has a comfortable jog and lopes out with ease. He knows his leads, stops and backs soft and side passes over to open and close the gates. Smarty is a great trail horse and is equally as solid to ride out around our busy neighborhood streets. If you like a horse with a brisk ground covering walk you will love riding him as he can really walk out nice. He navigates our rocky steep terrain really well. He crosses the river, tarps, trail bridges and anything else we ask him too. He rides good in a large group and goes out alone. Will lead or follow but usually ends up in the lead as he walks faster than some of the others. When riding in our urban environment he is un concerned about the trucks and speeding cars. Motorcycles, baby strollers as well as the farm animals and barking dogs are all things we often ride past when riding him on our neighborhood streets. We think he would do well at drill team, play days, barrels and polls. He would certainly do well with someone who wants a horse with a great work ethic and a ground covering walk to explore the mountain trails. He gets along very well with the mares and other geldings in the pasture and is fine in a box stall. This horse is light to leg and hand cues and forward moving and stays gentle with time off. 100% sane and sound. Check out his video! Sold! Sorry you missed him.
