Quarter Horse Stallion for Sale in Springfield, MO
Best Pass The Rest "Slim" learns best using Clinton Anderson style training. He knows leads, backs, side passes, has leg cues including stops and head down. Yeilds hind and fore quarters. Two tracks at the walk and trot, some at the canter. He's started on reining moves. For sale because I would like to be more competitive in western pleasure, he gets too excited when he's cantering in class with other horses that are cantering with him. He does ok when it's just him or not everyone is cantering. He has been shown the last 3 summers at local clubs and does well in all the other classes including the trail class. He learns quickly and tries hard especially when rewarded for the slightest try. Loads, vet and farrier friendly. Much more to tell if interested. Call evenings 417-833-6***4 or 417-840-2***4 or email. Good home only, no horse traders please.
