I have had this horse for 4 plus years and he has been my personal riding horse. He is 14.2 hands, gentle and quiet an in your pocket type horse, can be on the upper side in the pecking order, looks like a quarter horse and well gaited. You can turn him out for months get him up and saddle him and he is the same horse all the time. I had not rode him in several months and a friend of mine passed and I lead another horse with him leading my friend to his grave with no problems. He will go anyplace you asked him, he will ride in the front middle or back with quarter horses or gaited horses. He will move off your leg sidepass, carry saddle bags he don't care what you do.
