Flashy Palomino Tennessee Walking Gaited Trail Gelding 16.2HH
Tex is a STUNNING big, sensitive guy. I brought him to Colorado from San Antonio in Sept 2019. Since then he's been learning new things with me and working at a mental health equine therapy program (non-riding) and his gentle/sensitive nature has made him a favorite with kids and adults, one teen client said that "Tex can see into your soul"... I agree. He's got the softest eyes that will melt your heart.With the lightest of leg pressure or a clear thought about what you want, you'll have Tex moving out. He has a lot of natural talent and is definitely more go than whoa. This handsome guy will get you noticed and get you there fast! His walk & gait are so smooth, you'll understand why this breed is called The Cadillac of gaited horses. Tex is typically asked to ride in the middle or back of the group, when he's out front, he'll be faster than the pack. He crosses water and bridges with no problem. Even on busy trails, Tex has no problems with joggers, hikers, bikes, baby buggies, and dogs too. He's been in the mountains on a camping trip with trail riding & he loads easily. He's sound, barefoot and an easy keeper. He is good in the herd with others. Stands quietly when tied and is relaxed with the farrier.Tex has primarily been ridden with direct reigning but we've done some light work with neck reigning and he picks things up so quickly, this would be a breeze to finish.He stands still for mounting and dismounting & picks you up from wherever you are (mounting block, boulders, truck bed, etc). You can also mount/dismount on either side and tack him on both sides too. He's easy to halter (and lowers his head for the halter and bridle), quiet in the barn and always willing to try.Tex is up to date on all vaccinations, has been wormed on a regular basis, has had his hooves trimmed every 6 weeks, and will have his teeth floated on March 15.Please note that Tex is not a beginner horse and he should be ridden daily if possible, I've not been able to give him as much time as he needs to grow and improve his confidence. For someone with time and patience, he'll be the perfect horse. He's only 10yrs old, has a solid foundation and you can finish him to your specific needs.
