Breed: Quarter Horse
Evaluation: Before coming to Believe Ranch and Rescue, Jax spent his years carrying wranglers up the mountainsides in Wyoming, where pack strings of mules and ranch guests followed in his steps. Unfortunately, guest ranches cannot afford to keep horses that are not sore, and Jax came up body sore from hard riding, especially due to the long hours spent under saddle navigating tricky terrain. It is not the ranches’ fault, but simply a cause for change in a horses’ lifestyle. To our dismay, we came across Jax at the auction, where a slaughter buyer was hard set on purchasing this regal gelding.
At 15.2hh, Jax is a striking horse, and would be a catch in anyone’s pasture or barn, with his jet black coat contrasting against his big blaze, random marks of white, and his tall white stocking legs. Jax is a total gentleman, quiet and still for the farrier, grooming and saddling. He is soft under saddle and knows all his cues and never puts a foot wrong.
Jax has many miles underneath him, and is ready to roll anytime. He has more go than woah, but with structure, he will give you that nice western jog!
Ailments/Limitations: Tendency to get body sore
