*Price Reduced* 1993 APHA Gelding For Sale: Experienced, Well-Mannered, and Kid-
This beautiful gelding is available for sale. He has been trained and ridden by his owner since they were both 9 years old, and the only reason she is selling him is because she just graduated college and is moving out of the country to teach English. Baby Hughy's registered name is Black Flash, he is a registered Paint (black and white but his black is fading to brown!) He stands at 16 hands tall, weighs around 1100 lbs. He is 22 years old and has one blue eye. He is up to date on all necessary vaccinations, farrier and dental work and is healthy and sound (paperwork available upon request). He has been ridden English for past 13 years, but was ridden Western before then. He has been trained in dressage and used for lessons and he is a dream on the trails! He makes an absolutely wonderful pleasure horse and would be happy to be a companion horse in the future.
He has been trained in some natural horsemanship techniques, and he's a pretty bomb-proof guy who is great with all ages: kids, pets, and as an equine therapy aid. Hughy is a doll, he will stand for hours while you groom him without making a fuss (including clipping, bathing, shoeing, etc.) He is also easy to load into trailers. He is a very smooth ride and patient and smart under saddle. Overall he is very low-maintenance, and he prefers the pasture to a stall. He gets along easily with other horses so he would also make a great companion horse eventually, but as of now he still has a good amount energy so he would prefer to have a consistent rider. He is very sweet and gets very attached to his rider / handler so we want to send him to a home with a regular caretaker. He is currently boarding just north of Boulder, Colorado.
*** His only vice is that he cribs, so please be aware that your property needs to be able to handle this habit (he only grips the fence / gate and pulls back while sucking in air, he does not bite or chew on the material) ... This habit is not dangerous to his health, please contact me with any questions so I can explain it further!
