11 Year Old 151 Hand Bay Gelding
Oak View, CA
If you like riding a brave handy and well trained horse with a great work ethic and 1 that is sure footed dependable and responsive then you are going to love Luke! This is Barbaras favorite and if she was going to keep 1 this would be him! Luke is a well put together 15.1 hand 11 yr old bay gelding thats an absolute pleasure to ride and be around. This horse is rock solid to ride anywhere. In the arena Luke will be soft in the bridle collects up nice and moves off of leg cues or hand cues or any combination with ease. He has a nice slow jog lopes out on cue and rates how fast or slow you want to go. He will move any of his feet independently of the others and places them exactly where we want them. Stops like a dead end street and will roll back and turn around with ease. He is awesome to ride on our mountain trails. Crosses the raging muddy deep river with precision and grace. Even when he cannot see the big boulders under the surface he trusts his rider completely and this is the thing we like best about him. Luke is confident and un concerned riding in the urban environment. Dogs cars bikes trucks lawn equipment and such are of no concern to him. He will lead follow or go out alone. It makes no difference to him. Luke is always gentle gets along turned out with the other horses and has outstanding ground manners. He is a rock solid trail horse. he would do well penning or sorting or take him back to the ranch and put him back to work. He is nice about everything we throw at him. He is 100 in every way. Safe sane and sound. There are few like him and you will drive the wheels off your pickup to 1 this nice! This 1 is a keeper!
