He is a very gentle and nice riding boy, and has a HUGE personality. he can be quite the hambone, and likes to entertain you on occasion. Sometimes your look over, and he'll work until he gets the leadrope hanging from his ears, and wants to make sure you see him being a clown!! He is very people oriented, and follows you all over the pasture, just on the hope that it is him that you are wanting. He has been used for trails, and moving cattle, but is never going to be a very fast horse. If it were up to him, he would just walk along on the trails all day long and enjoy the sights. He rides with a very loose and hanging rein, neck reins wonderfully, backs, works very well with inside leg pressure, and stops the instant you pick up the reins.
