He is GRADE but he's no DINK this is a great deal for one heck of a nice horse. Finished on the pattern, just needs seasoning, more of a free runner. Videos available. 2 years of reining training, he will plant a leg and spin either direction. Had some cutting training, 60 days professional barrel training plus hauling time. EASY Keeper, good feet, great for the farrier and doesn't require shoes. NOT a kids horse or for beginners, he has a lot of motor and can go ALL day.
