Could be a nice step up horse for an experienced child or an adult looking for a fun ride.

Handsome, easy keeper, sound, fancy, push button,athletic, stout gelding with a very sweet disposition looking for a forever family. Has never offered to bite, buck, bolt or rear. Can be stubborn for a minute but I expect that from a shorty. He does need to get used to his rider, meaning that he should be lunged the first few times before riding. He wont do anything bad if you don't lunge him, he is just a little nervous with a new rider. He isn't the kind of horse you can pass around to other riders. He bonds to his owner.

His current diet is mostly hay with a bit of haystack, one cup of renew gold, a half cup of soaked whole oats. I do give him a few supplements. Legacy and Remission. Its more preventative.He doesn't really need them. He's a hardy guy. He is food motivated. Never had an issue with him eating. He maintains his weight well. He will take a winter blanket but doesn't really need it. He is iffy on baths.

Easy to catch. Can go out in pasture and halter at any time. I have him trained to come in from pasture and walk into his stall without assistance.
Trailers well-He might need a flake of alfalfa to help him load. Its only until he is used to you. Then he will go right in. Again, he is a little shy with new people.
Arena/Trails-Never had an issue with either. He is equally comfortable with both
Barefoot-he came to me with front shoes.I removed them as I haven't taken him on any rocky terrain. His feet are pretty solid. No issues.
Recommended for Advanced Beginner/Intermediate rider- I only say this as beginner riders tend to have an unbalanced seat and heavy hands. He is light on cues and responds to what you are asking of him. Hes been sitting since September due to me relocating to icky weather. I work him in the round pen but have not ridden him since then.
Leader in the pack- He is pastured with 2 other geldings and mares. He thinks he is the boss but wont be bossy with you. He does whatever I ask of him. He is a good boy!!
He's been on a regular trim and worming schedule.

He is a very nice horse and I want him to go to a home where he will be used for what he is trained for. Otherwise the training will go to waste staying with me. I need a trail only horse a that is all I really want to do.

Open to a trade for a calm, temperament 1-4 range,older gelding(somewhat partial to Bays, Black, Duns and Buckskins), requires maintenance ok too. I am not an every day rider so a horse that can sit and then be ridden without much start up is a good fit. I am short so 14h -15h ideal.
