Oakley is an attractive and well-made 11 year old grade roan gelding that is gentle and suitable for most any level of rider. He is kid tested and mother approved! This is a quiet minded, smooth traveling gelding that is user friendly to ride and be around. He has a good one hand neck rein, easy jog and lopes out on cue. Great stop and backs with ease. He will turn around slow and correct and will side over to open and close the gates. Oakley is rock solid to ride out about anywhere. He has been in parades, has lots of outside roping experience and has been used in all aspects of ranch work. This horse is a perfect gentleman to ride around our busy streets and out on our rugged mountain trails. Everything we have encountered in our urban environment has been of no concern to him. Barking charging dogs, cars and trucks whizzing by to bikes and Yard equipment. Hard to find a solid citizen like this to ride out. He is a fantastic sure footed trail horse and he navigates the steep rocky terrain like a seasoned horse should. He crosses the river, trail bridges, downed timber with ease and will lead, follow or settle in the middle of the pack. He goes out alone as well. He is rock solid with the trail obstacles, carries the flags, Crosses and carries the tarp and ropes and drags whatever we want. He is an absolute pleasure to ride anywhere. He has been ridden bare back, changes leads and has great grounds manners. Gets along well with the other horses in the pasture and stands good for the farrier and to mount and to tack up. He bathes and hauls well and hops right in the trailer. This horse does everything we ask. 100% safe, sane and sound. Sold! Sorry you missed him. We have others so feel free to give us a call and see if we have a match for you! Happy trails!
