Vaquero is a very beautiful AQHA 7 year old 14.3 hand Grullo gelding with foundation bloodlines. He has foot and bone to last and is extremely personable with a golden retriever kind of a personality. His sire is a world champion in all around ranch pleasure and all around ranch horse reserve world champion in ranch riding and ranch conformation. Vaquero was shown as a 2 and 3 year old in halter and ranch trail classes winning 1st in his ranch trail class. This is a very gentle and user friendly gelding that has been rode by 4h kids on up. He collects up well, has a nice smooth jog and lopes out on cue. Good stop, backs soft and side passes with ease. Vaquero has lots of trail miles and is a wonderful trail horse. He will lead or follow, ride respectfully in a group as well as out alone. He crosses the river, small creeks and navigates our steep rocky terrain really well. He is sure footed in the rocks and is a pleasure to trail ride on. He is equally as good in our urban environment. From farm animals to barking charging dogs, cars, trucks and bicycles he handles it all like it’s just another day at the office. He has been used on the ranch pushing and sorting cattle and has been lightly started roping the hot heels. Vaquero is a get along kind of a guy out in the pasture and will happily meet you at the gate ready and willing for whatever you have planned. He is 100% safe, sound and sane with no vices or bad habits. This is a rare opportunity to get your next superstar. Very nice horse! And pretty too! 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!.
