Amazing rodeo horse, bought for my daughter to High School Rodeo on. Won 3 Pennsylvania 4H State Championships (2015 & 2016) in Barrel Racing and 2016 in Pole Bending. Won the 2016 Maryland High School Rodeo Barrel Racing Buckle (championship and won All Around) and the 2017 Buckles in Barrel Racing and Pole Bending. Better at barrels than poles. His best time in poles is 21.8 and he is still learning. When we got him, he knew the barrel pattern but she taught him poles. Pro caliber horse, handles himself well in all types of footing. NO GATE ISSUES! Will go Left or Right. My daughter liked to take him left. Currently runs in a snaffle with a Martha Josey German martingale. Absolutely No gate issues, will walk in and out. Daughter warms him up at events doing pirouettes in the arena will do dressage. Loves trails, water and bridges. My daughter has won many thousands of dollars riding him in big barrel races. Runs 1D most of the time, Low 2D vs American top 5 competition at jackpots. Other than a need for front shoes, due to an old hoof scar, there is no maintenance needed. My daughter has other interests now and I have to pay bills.
