Charley is a bright copper sorrel registered Tennessee Walking Horse with great looks and stunning flaxen mane and tail. Naturally and consistently smooth-gaited, Charley is a seasoned trail horse who can be ridden alone or with a group. He is very responsive and will step out from a nice trail walk into an energetic but smooth running walk with the slightest of cues. His rocking horse canter is a joy to ride. He is ridden in a bitless bridle, is very surefooted and halts obediently. Charley will jump obstacles when asked, crosses creeks without balking (loves water), and is calm and reliable on the trail. He is at ease around dogs, kids, crowds, hikers, wildlife, vehicles.
Charley has a great disposition, is eager to please, gentle and likes people. He has a beautiful, classic refined head and excellent conformation with strong legs and great feet. He has good ground manners (with or without a lead and halter) and wins first place in halter class at local fun shows. Charley will park out for mounting and is trained to stand quietly until asked to walk out. He is always fun to ride and so responsive it seems like all you need to do is think “let’s pick it up a bit” and he will switch into a higher gear. He loads into the trailer like a pro and always waits patiently to be told when to back out. He quietly stands untied for the farrier, vet, grooming, bathing, clipping, saddling, etc., and is easy to catch from turnout (comes when called). While mature and tractable, Charley has lots of good healthy energy, so an adult rider is recommended.
Charley is healthy and sound, receives regular hoof trimmings and veterinary checkups and vaccinations, including dental care; negative Coggins 6/22/13.
I am trying to find Charley a new home as I begin preparations for an out-of-state move and return to school on top of a full-time job. I will no longer have enough time to devote to Charley, and he is such a wonderful horse that I want someone to enjoy him as much as I have. He is a great companion and trail partner and should be for many years to come.
