Quarter Horse Gelding for Sale in Fordland, MO

Eli is a 10yo big, beautiful, black quarter horse gelding. He is out of papered cutting and running blood horses, but is being sold as grade. He’s 15.3 hh. I bought him from his previous owner, an inexperienced rider who turned him out to pasture as a green 3yo in favor of a more seasoned horse, no fault of Eli’s. I have restarted him and put quite a few miles on him. He’s doing great and ready to be taken any direction. He has a huge, smooth, ground covering stride and can keep up with gaited horses on the trail. He also can flat out book it and has some serious speed! I think he’d excel as a roping or barrel horse. He moves quietly amongst a herd of of cattle and is pretty handy at sorting, he has some cow sense and enjoys working. He has no bite or kick... I can’t s
... more»ay with honesty that he has no buck, because I found out that if you accidentally step him into a ground hornets nest he will indeed buck, but I’m sure that is true of any horse! As long as there are no ground hornets nests involved, he is well mannered under saddle and on the ground. He bathes, loads, and stands pretty good for the farrier. He is super eager to please and if you reward the slightest try he will give you 10x as much the next time. He has a lot of get up and go and I’d still consider him green, so not for a beginner. I’d like to see him go to someone who will continue with his training in a discipline that will let him live up to his full potential. Delivery available within reason for 1.50 per loaded mile. Will consider reasonable partial trades for good unstarted horses or high quality hay.
