Breed: Quarter Horse type
Uncle is a flashy sorrel gelding who is extremely friendly and loves being in your pocket once he gets to know you. Even though he is a big boy, standing at 16.2 hh, he is very well mannered and gentle, both on the ground and under saddle. Uncle has worked with whip and tarp desensitization, and has proven to be a quick learner.
He is a forward moving horse, and enjoys walking out on a nice, loose rein. His years under saddle show, he neck reins like a dream and rides the same in a halter as he does a curb. Super easy to ride, he has proven to be beginner safe in a controlled (familiar) environment, but may need an intermediate rider in new environments/places. Uncle is a sensitive and alert horse, but not reactive. He has never offered to buck or rear. In his current condition, he is approved for light riding (walk/trot) but does have potential to be a fully sound riding horse with maintenance. Great light trail horse, arena horse, or companion.
Ailments/Limitations: Currently has mild soft tissue pain (x-rays were done and came back clean) in his front feet, but may be able to make a full recovery if farrier work is kept up.
Adoption Fee: $850
