"Jake" is a 15 hand 12 year old grulla paint gelding. This is a horse that has had a little of everything done on him
that you can do horseback. He has no bad habits and is easy to catch, load, shoe, saddle, and mount. He is definitely
gentle enough for the beginner and novice riders (children and grandparents) and well trained and broke enough to be
appreciated and enjoyed by the intermediate and experienced riders. He has not gotten fresh after being turned out
and is not spooky or shy in crowds, in the pasture, or around livestock and wildlife. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being
excellent), he has an 8 neck-rein, stop and back-up. He has a nice quiet walk and instead of a trot, he has a nice
smooth saddle gai
t, and when asked, he goes into a nice short lope. He rides on a loose rein, is not aggressive, and is
very disciplined both on the ground and under the saddle. He is a trail rider's dream, and yet great for a lesson pen or
working ranch.
