Joey is a a great horse with a laid back attitude. You can trail ride all week and take him to a barrel race on the weekend. He is barefoot and completely sound. We are not selling him as a kids horse. He prefers a confident older teen or adult rider and likes to be told what to do. He has competed in barrels (novice) for 2 years. He rides great on trail or in the arena. He has been hauled a ton and even camps. Stands quiet at the trailer all day and is great for the farrier. He is an easy keeper, but he does crib. We put shock wire in his pen and he does great. Does not crib on buckets or waterers. If stalled he will also wear a grazing muzzle.
