DF’s Start Me Up, aka “Starter,” is a beautiful 15.2 HH gelding. He is registered and certified. Starter has been trail rode all winter and seen every inch of 1200 acres at his current home. He is calm and easy going in nature. He is great with ATVs/Gators driving around him, banging tin pans, waving thin metal sheets around making noise, and carrying a flag. We have not been able to spook him yet with all of our crazy antics you will witness when you watch his video.
Incredible confirmation and exceptional bloodlines. He is easy to ride and would be well suited for an advanced beginner. He loves to walk and will willingly do so on a loose reign. He has a smooth trail pleasure gait and transitions from a walk to a show gait effortlessly. He is a joy to ride and be around all of the time. He is an excellent representation of the Rocky Mountain Horse and strives for his rider’s approval.
Starter will ride alone or in groups and has mainly been rode by a young lady that rides alone around the farm. The possibilities of what you can do with him are endless! He’d excel in Mounted Patrol, Field Trials, do parades, compete in obstacle courses, mounted shooting, show horse, and just an all around horse that the entire family can ride!
Starter easily loads in the trailer, stands for farrier, bath, and etc. He stands for mounting and dismounting on both sides. He will stand for mounting next to a mounting block until you are ready to go. He crosses a wooden bridge and teeter totter without giving it much thought. We are convinced he would make a great trail obstacle competitor if give the chance. Starter will cross, stand, and swim in water. He does not mind dogs or cats around his feet.
Starter backs on verbal commands and light pressure from the reigns. He will also “whoa” on command and “walk” on command.
If you are looking for the ultimate package, Starter is your boy!
He’s up to date on all his vaccines, farrier, worming and coggins.
Once you see his video showing all he can do you’ll be amazed by this beautiful Trail Horse!!
