15.1H. 2006. APHA. Gelding.

$6,500 - SOLD

“Chance” is an APHA registered, 2006, 15.1H, gelding with Doc O’Lena and Colonel Freckles on his papers! He has a white patch over his neck, 4 high flashing stocks, and a pretty white tail! Chance has a fantastic handle; he has nice and comfortable gaits, he pivots, side passes, works a gate, collects into the bridle, neck reins, and has a great whoa +backup! If you like one to be on the sensitive side to your aids – Chance is the man! This gelding is super BROKE, soft, and versatile! He is absolutely a dream to trail ride and is wonderful on the obstacle course. He never hesitated once while walking over our bridge, up hills, in between gullies, logs, teeter totter, and into the pond!  Chance loves to bond with his “person” – he is a sweet boy, but sometimes can be tricky to catch in a large field until he gets to know you. Chance has fantastic ground manners; he stands tied, loads, quiet to saddle up, stands for vet/farrier etc.  He has NO buck, rear, bolt, bite, kick, etc! He is not spooky under saddle and handled riding in town very well – even with cars weaving around him! He has been a 4H show horse for many years, until his owner went to college where he sat for a few years. He has since then been trail riding AND has been introduced to some drill patterns – he has even been seasoned at some of the events! He carries a flag well, and is very athletic / willing in performance. His lightness and finesse handle makes him easy to maneuver around the patterns – and he even has a flying lead change! Chance is cute English, and will slow down for the western events, he can do all the trail obstacles, fun in the speed events, and has great conformation for the Halter classes. We would love to find him another 4H home with a talented advanced confident youth, or trail riding home! Chance has experience working the feedlots, and is very cowy - someone would have loads of fun sorting on this boy!

His owner has taken great care of him -he is up to date with all his care which includes; recent dental, utd shots, farrier (Trim only), coggins, and dewormer! Chance is very sound, no history of health/injury/ or soundness issues. Registration papers in hand! Chance is located in Terrell, TX – affordable nation-wide shipping can be coordinated to any state.
