Paint Gelding for Sale in Littleton, CO
UTD on deworming and vaccines Stands for farrier and chiropractor. Suitable for experienced riders. Magic is a stunning Paint. He has been used in hippotherapy for the last few years, but decided this job isn’t for him. He has been struggling with increased anxiety and needs an experienced horse person who has patience and time to work with him consistently. He has been spooking/startling easily and kicking/bucking under saddle (he is not recommended for inexperienced riders at this time). Actively engaging his brain has helped reduce the extra spooking, but no clear reason for his behavior under saddle has been discovered at this time. He loves to connect with people and anxiety behaviors have shown progress with liberty training. With a change of scenery and some intentional work, he could be a great kids/beginner horse again. Has previously been used on trail rides, in hippotherapy, and loves to be the first one with his head out for people to love him and give him attention. Magic is a great horse! He just needs someone who can give him a little extra TLC. Come check him out!
About Littleton, CO
The city of Littleton's history dates back to the 1859 Pike's Peak Gold Rush, which brought not only gold seekers, but merchants and farmers to the community. Richard Sullivan Little was an engineer from New Hampshire who made his way out West to work on irrigation systems. Little soon decided to settle in the area at present day Littleton and brought his wife Angeline out from the East in 1862. The Littles, along with many neighbors, built the Rough and Ready Flour Mill in 1867, which provided a solid economic base in the community. By 1890, the community had grown to 245 people and the residents voted to incorporate the Town of Littleton.
