“DUSTY” … How broke is he?? He has been in a “pay to ride” camp for the past 3 years- for Children & Adults of all ages! A confidence builder for sure! Great for Beginner Rider or Anyone!!! Same temperament 24/7!! Big, Stout, and ever so Sweet!!
“DUSTY” is a big, stout, beautiful –and to be EXACT – 15 1/2 hands!!! —six year old gelding that has years of experience trail riding with all ages! He has been for the past three years….in a “Pay To Ride” camp – where children and adults of all ages have ridden him. You can take Dusty somewhere new to ride…..and he just totally ignores all surroundings. He is a happy horse! Very contented! Will do whatever the rider ask of him! Nothing seems to bother Dusty – ditches, creeks, steep slopes, crossing logs, woods, squirrels, rabbits, barking dogs, Traffic!—-sirens, 4-wheelers. We have exposed him to all of these things and he is just amazing. Dusty is an easy horse to do all things with.
He is easy to shoe, clip, bathe, load, haul,and comes to me when he sees me- so easy to catch! He is the humble one here….(or has been) in the pasture and has not shown any sign of aggressive behavior toward the other horses. He is the humble one.
Dusty has this amazing sloooow walk! It is like he is in slow motion!! I have never had a horse that can walk as slow as Dusty!Dusty is VERY LAID BACK. But if you cluck to him….he will go into his faster gait! I love that he will go in his gaits and come right back down to a slow walk without hesitation! Dusty will cross anything….without balking or hesitating! He will ride in a group…front, middle, back……and- he will go in another direction away from the group and ride alone. He does not hesitate when riding away from the stables and other horses!
Dusty is so good with children. You can ride him triple – double……An adult can ride double with a toddler. Dusty will have his vaccinations – (West Nile, Rhino, Strep, 4-way, Tetanus, Rabies) – a current Coggins & Health – and we worm every 2 1/2 months rotating brands! His teeth have been floated. All of this information will be included with his paperwork when he comes to you, along with- our vet name and number, shoeing and worming dates! His shoes will be re-set before leaving.
Dusty is a big, calm, sweet as can be – wonderful trail horse for the entire family! He is a joy to be with! We also obtain transport quotes for you upon request! We welcome you to come anytime to ride and spend time with the horse of your choice! We want you to be safe and happy! You cannot ask too many questions, – and I cannot send too many videos!!!! This is a very personal and important decision….and it just has to be right!!
