This is a super broke and quiet gelding. He has been rode in feedlots and we have pasture roped on him. He is starting out nicely on the barrel pattern and really gets down on his hocks to turn. Stays nice and level headed all the way but will run when asked. Breaks at the poll, moves easily off your legs, and has a big stop. This horse can go any direction you take him, whether its roping or running barrels or just trails. We have owned him for two years and have had several kids (8 year old, 12 year old, and a 13 year old) on him, but they know how to ride.
