Metallica is a very well-bred AQHA 7 year old, 15.2 Hand thick made red roan gelding with good foot and bone that was bred and raised on the HAYTHORN ranch. This horse is cow horse bred in the purple and is as cowboy looking of a horse as you could ask for. Collects up well, has a nice smooth trot and lopes out on cue. Takes his leads, has a great one hand neck rein, a good turn around and slide stop. Backs soft and side passes with ease to open and close gates. This is a responsive gelding that moves easy off of light leg and hand cues. Metallica is a great trail horse that’s also outstanding to ride around our busy neighborhood. On the trails he will lead or follow. Rides quietly in a group or out on his own. Crosses the river, trail bridges, downed timber and small creeks. He’s very sure footed and navigates our steep and rocky terrain well. When riding in an urban environment Metallica is rock solid and could care less about all that we ride past, including farm animals, charging barking dogs, bicycles and fast passing vehicles. This horse has been used extensively on the ranch and has been used for pasture roping, doctoring sick cattle and for sorting and moving cattle. He always saddles up gentle and is good to bathe, tie, tack up, mount, shoe, load and haul. This is a fun and handy gelding. 100% 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!.
