Looking for a gaited trail horse with a big motor? Here he is! This guy can go all day without tiring.
Diesel is a 6 year old TWH, grade. 15.3 hh
Broke to ride at four years old, he has been completely sound his entire life. Solid build, strong legs.
He’s very willing and has a great mind. Goes where you ask him to, crosses anything you point him towards. Lots of energy but is not a bucker or bolter, and has absolutely no spook.
He has a big walk but his favorite gear is to be in gait and exploring! Diesel has a great lope and an excellent canter, it’s like riding a freight train, so much fun!!
Diesel has been fox hunting, trained in field trails, and has extensive back country trail experience, has been hauled all over CO, WY, KS, MO. Very sure footed on both flat ground and over technical mountain trails.
He’s full of confidence and loves to ride out alone, does well with one or two other friends, but gets competitive in larger groups and wants to be in front, so make sure you like to lead!
He loves people and attention, has perfect ground manners, stands patiently for mounting (on and off side), is easy to catch and load, and great for the farrier. Cross ties, bathes. Came to me neck reined but has done great with me teaching him direct reining.
Diesel would work best with an intermediate to advanced rider, he’s driven with lots of go. Endurance/Competitive Trail (Open Division) Prospect.
