“Rock” – (15.2 – 5 yr. old) – REG. TW – - is five years old with a temperament of a ten year old! We have found him to be non-spook, calm, quiet, sweet, affectionate, very well-behaved with ALL things, just as he was with his previous owners! We got Rock from friends of ours (30+ yrs.), and family that Tommy shoes for …… we know this horse well! He has been trail ridden extensively, and also shown in the pleasure classes with many Blues!! ——– Rock has “the smoothest ride” …. and has just a little faster gait when called on. He stops on voice command!!!! — will stop-stand- and wait as long as you want!! Without moving! He stands absolutely STILL when mounting and will mount from a mounting block, truck bed, stump, whatever you want!!———- He has seen the country with trail riding, and he has traveled to shows and seen the lights and commotion all that has to offer!! —— Rock is SO LOVING!!!! – just “the sweetest”. He walks right on the horse trailer – and is easy to do ALL things with such as clip, bathe, haul, shoe, and catch! He is truly a big baby! —– Rock has a very sloooow motion walk and will do this all day long. He will go into his gait ……. and come right back down to the slow walk, or stop on command!! Rock rides with a group, front, middle, back, and will ride off alone on a different trail away from the group! He is a very contented, happy horse and whatever his rider wants to do, is Okay! He is contented whatever he is doing!—— He runs good with other horses, both geldings and mares! He is humble….both in pasture and under saddle. Rock is a very stylish horse…..he will back all the way down the driveway…..- is very much traffic broke!!! We live on a four lane so believe me, our horses are tested with all kinds of traffic!! Rock is the very best with everything we have done with him!——————- Rock has been ridden in the mountains, huge parks,….very difficult trails! He is an extraordinary trail horse!! You will absolutely love him if you like a smooth ride!!!!!! ————– Rock has been a family horse,…..and he will give SO much joy to another family! —— I love the dominant black! We have had two other extraordinary horses the color of Rock – and that was Elvis and Kong! And their temperaments were also the same!! It is rare that we get a horse like this……..and I just love it when we do!! In the past two years, we have found it more difficult to find the larger size horses… least those that are truly safe!!!! Rock is truly a rare find!! Please see our MANY TESTIMONIALS!! on our Previously Sold Horses page!
