"Smoke" is a seven year old gelding who needs someone to jockey him to the top! He has a great foundation and will ride around very fancy; collects at the poll for a walk trot canter, roll backs, spins, side passes, counter arcs, lead changes, you name it he will do it. Smoke has a cool style to him and really likes to drag his hind end around a barrel, that being said he will not run by a barrel. By no means is he a barrel hitter, he runs a very correct and honest pattern every time, good at the gate and easy to ride. Currently I have been placing in the mid 1D with him at jackpots and barrel races, I have taken him to some rodeos and he adjusted very well, he's very sure footed and handles any type of ground with ease. I'm used to free runners, so I don't think I'm riding him to the best of his ability. I run him in a three piece short shank sherry cervi and at home I ride him in a simple twisted o ring snaffle, he is very soft in anything. Previously he was purchased for $10k as a five year old after spending his five year old year being futuritied by Stephen and Lauren Boutin. The previous owner has won big barrel races in Central TX with 300+ entries. He also knows the poles, he hasn't been entered but will breeze through a nice set at the house. He has the best personality and is always wanting to please. Hauls great, always jumps right in the trailer, is good with other horses in the pasture, stands to be shod and saddled, he's really just a sweet boy to have around. He can get fresh if he sits for awhile, but he has never ever bucked, great on the trails, and has a great head on his shoulders. Smoke is 100% sound, UTD on all vaccines, teeth, and farrier. The only maintenance I do is chiro. Vet checks are welcome at buyers expense. The only reason hes for sale is that I've had a change in heart and would really like to focus on the colts. A good home is a must. No tire kickers, please don't waste either of our time! Feel free to give me a call or text for videos and more information.
