JAX (CL)

Category: Riding
Age: 20
Gender: Gelding

Breed: Paint

Bio: Jax- 20 yo registered black and white paint gelding. He is well trained and handy to ride. Jax is quiet and kind for a beginner at the walk or on lead line. At the trot and above he likes to go so would be better suited for an intermediate or above level rider. He was used as a rodeo head horse before I got him. He is very used to having a rope swung off of him. He is also unfazed by polo mallet, polocrosse or bow and arrow. I have used him for mounted archery. He does not mind the sound and movement of mounted archery. He is fabulous on trail rides and will go all day. He can go out alone or in a group. He benefits from front shoes in the summer, and would need shoes all the way around if ridden in rocky terrain. His hoof walls tend to break off in dry summer weather and on rocky ground. He does have some arthritis in his legs from his rodeo days, so hard riding with lots of hard stops and turns would not suit him. He is cinchy when saddled, but treats or allowing him to graze while tightening the girth, as well as taking your time and tightening very slowly have worked wonders for him. He is up to date on veterinary, dental and hoof care. He is a very sweet boy and I will only part with him to a good home. $2,000 adoption fee.
