Sale Video
“Gator is an approximately 18 year old grade gelding. He is a sweet older guy who is very patient, gentle, and quiet. He stands great for tacking up, grooming, bridling, and for mounting up, whether using the mounting block or getting on from the ground. He has a solid “woah” at all three gaits, neck reins, has good transitions, and is comfortable riding in or out of the arena. He is currently being ridden about 3 times a week for 30-60 minutes. He can be stiff to warm up given his age (comfortable on straight lines, slightly off trotting in a circle), but this stiffness improves as he warms up and as he is ridden more. Given Gator’s sweet disposition and experience under saddle, he would be perfectly suitable to be someone’s light riding horse.” – Description by student rider, Bailey Abi-Nader, Third Year Animal Science Major *Full Disclosure: Gator has an old scar, likely from a saddle sore, on his back that is fully closed and healed but is missing hair. It has not caused an issue while riding, and is not sensitive.
