Talk about royally bred! This 15.2 hand 4 year old red roan gelding has both Peptoboonsmal and Color Me Smart right on his papers! It is no accident that this horse is gentle yet handy with a good work ethic and a great mind with natural ability. Boon is a very good natured gelding with a bright future and is a super horse to ride and work with. In the arena he has a good one hand neck rein, moves off of leg and hand cues with a good turn around. He has a really good long trot but will slow it down for a nice slow jog. He lopes out nice, takes his leads, backs soft and will roll back and lope out of his tracks and will side pass with ease for as long as one asks. He is a very settled and solid mount to ride out anywhere from our busy neighborhood streets to our rugged mountain trails and is really awesome! Traffic safe and is totally un-concerned about all that we encounter in our urban environment. On the trails Boon will lead, follow or go at it alone. He navigates our steep rocky terrain very well. He crosses the rocky river crossings, streams, trail bridges and downed timber with no hesitation. He picks his way thru the rocks and knows how to get up and down steep tough terrain very well. Boon has been used on the ranch to gather, move and sort cattle. Boon is good turned out with the other geldings, is good to tie, shoe, bathe and load. We think he would be a great heel, sorting or play day horse or just ride him around the trails and enjoy him. He has no vices, bad habits or issues of any kind and is a super nice well bred gelding with a very promising future. 6 panel negative. 100% safe sane and sound in every way. 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!
