2008 Black Rocky Mountain Gelding

 Wowzers! Look at this handsome hunk! This is the type of horse you are going to wear out a set of tires trying to find! Rocket is an 11 year old black gelding that is half Rocky Mountain horse and half Standardbred. He stands 15.1H with excellent conformation. This boy is the total package! He is an experienced trail horse and there's no question that's the truth when you see this boy on the trail. His gait is phenomenal and he's got all the gears and knows them well! Rocket will rack up to 20 mph and do it right! But the best part is that he's the hard to find kind that can also slow gait just as well, and he has a great "off" switch! By that I mean he can be full speed ahead, ask him to walk, drop the reins and he'll walk calmly on a loose rein until you ask him to do something different! He does not get hot headed! Rocket is surefooted and goes anywhere he's pointed. This boy has extensive trail and camping experience. He is fine to ride alone or in large groups, it makes no difference to Rocket! It does not get too deep or steep for Rocket, he will go anywhere you point him. He is not phased by creeks, mud, logs, barking dogs, traffic, or ATV's. Rocket is not spooky. He stands great for mounting and dismounting and is fine if you want to use a mounting block.  His gait is exceptionally smooth! Rocket has a brand new coggins and is ready to hit the trails! He has excellent ground manners, stands tied quietly, and is good for the farrier, clipping, and bathing. This is a super all around horse that I'm sure whoever gets him is going to love but in the meantime, we're loving every minute we spend on his back!
