This is Hank! And he is just like our little Ginger mare we sold a couple of weeks ago! He is So Very Loving! His movements are VERY still like with whatever you are doing or what is going on around him! 24/7! He is dependable – consistent – the same every single day whether ridden or not! And even when stalled and not ridden!!
Hank, (8 yr. – 14.2) – “the sweetest” horse!! Hank is calm, quiet, consistent, dependable, – a lot of head sense! – and the same 24/7 – whether stalled or not ridden for months! You can ride him bareback, double, with halter/lead rein – no bridle, – You can ride sitting BACKWARDS (see photos/video) —crawl under him, sit under him, —you name it, you can do it with Hank!!! He is unbelievably one of the most contented horses we have had. He is so like our little Ginger mare we had recently. He is beautiful! Big Boned! Stocky! Stout! And a joy to be with and ride!!!!
Hank is VERY NON-SPOOK!- Heavy traffic broke; barking dog nipping at heels broke; – tarp – raincoat broke; – mower/chainsaw broke; – we have done it all!! Hank just does not care or pay attention to anything going on around him – and yet he is very smart. He will make you laugh….he will sniff your hair – loves to sniff and snuggle —–wants to be close —loves attention! He is easy to do all things with…..- he does not move when being shod (see video) –easy to clip and bathe……walks right in the trailer! Hank is very humble…..he runs with other horses with no problems…….not buddy sour at all, – will do whatever you ask of him no matter his surroundings.
Hank stops on voice command……will stop, stand and wait….not sure how long because we did it for 30 minutes and we got tired!! ( :
I think he would stand in one place all day…..he is SO very patient!!!! He stands to mount, – mounts from mtg. block – has a really, REALLY SLOW-MOTION WALK —–Hank is wonderful for a lesson horse, – anyone that is just learning to ride will feel so safe with Hank. “He just makes his rider “feel” safe”……….He is VERY cautious when stepping down hills, walking on creek slate rock, – any dangerous, Slick, or challenging area – he is very aware and very cautious.
Hank will be wonderful for a family with several children of all ages! I do not place this description on a horse unless I really feel it is true, –Hank is safe enough for being led with toddlers on his back. (common sense of course – someone walking close)—–and, you will love not having to worry about your small child standing beside him when tied. He does not move! They can stand beside him and pet or brush him…….he knows when a small child is present. His behavior is just amazing. He will lower his head to their level until they walk away. He is just a wonderful family horse!! And icing on the cake – absolutely beautiful and the best age! A rare find!

**Please take the time to read our MANY wonderful testimonials! I have more that have not been posted. I will be happy to obtain transport quotes upon request. I have several that I trust. 95% of my horses have been sold by phone or e-mail, site unseen…. I realize it takes a “lot of trust”……and is a “leap of faith”…..but you will find I have several families that have come back to me over the years and purchased 1 – 3 more over the phone – paying by bank wire. One family in Florida?….have 8 of my horses!! Six purchased by phone and paid by bank wire. ——-And if we do not presently have what you are looking for? Many of my horses are sold before posting them on the ad sites because I work with families on a very personal basis…..with them giving me some time, finding and matching them up with just the right horse or pony for their family.
