Shadow is a well put together and very cute 8 year old 14.3 hand black gelding. He has quickly become the favorite ride around here and any time we go riding everyone wants to ride him! Kelly loves him! Montana Loves him! Barbara loves him! This horse is gentle yet handy. He is a good natured gelding that’s a pleasure to ride and be around. He has a good one hand neck rein, comfortable trot and takes his leads with a good stop, back up and side pass. He opens and closes the gates easy and wants to be handy and athletic with a quite mind. He has a great work ethic and really wants to please his rider. Shadow has always been gentle and stays that way with some time off. He gets along really well with the other horses in the pasture and is a get along kind of a guy. He is outstanding to ride out anywhere from our rugged mountain trails to our busy neighborhood streets. He will led or follow, rides out alone or in larger groups. He crosses the water, bridges and downed timber and is a 4 heel drive machine that is really sure footed and will go anywhere we ask him. Very dependable in the rough and rocky terrain. He is equally as solid to ride around our busy neighborhood streets. Cars, trucks, bicycles are of no concern to him as well as the barking charging dogs jumping at the fences. He is a rock solid trail horse yet is handy enough to get any job done. Before coming to California he was used on the ranch gathering, doctoring and sorting. The vet looked in his mouth and aged him about 8 years old. He has no papers so sells as grade. Shadow is 100% safe, sane, sound and solid. 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!
