I have owned, ridden and trained many horses in my long life, but if I had to answer the hard question, "Which is the best?" that question would be very easy to answer. The horse that is the subject of this offering---"Pretty Boy." He is so memorable because in the true sense of the word, he can literally "do it all". If you saddle up "English", he's ready to go and whatever you ask him to do, it is done!
You want to hit the trails, go through the bush, over water, bring it on! Push button. Automatic. And if you throw a Western saddle on Pretty Boy's back, same result, he becomes an amazing Western Pleasure Quarter Horse. And if you're tired of placing second or third or not at all, those days are over, because Pretty Boy will bring home the blue ribbons. Time after time. It is hard to imagine a thirteen hundred pound, sixteen hand horse to possess the athleticism that he does---but he
does! He has that nice easy jog/trot that will go as slow as you want him to. So slow that you think he's walking. And when you squeeze him for his next gear, the canter, he could do it inside of a teacup with room to spare. He's that good. And to top it off, the gentle giant is just that, gentle! One of the few horses that I've seen in my life that comes up to you every time, no matter how big the field he is in. And he comes to greet you whether you have food in your hand or not. So affectionate. How many horses are like that? He likes people, it's as simple as can be, and he wants to please his riders. Ground manners? A plus plus. After mounting, he moves, but not an inch until you ask him to. I love that! Those horses that take off before you've given any signal at all, can be downright annoying. Pretty Boy is a joy and then some! Any questions, call me. You want to ride him to see what I'm talking about? Any day, any time, just let me know. And one last thing. Why do we call him Pretty Boy? Because he is breathtakingly beautiful and has the body that I could not even begin to describe. I won't even try. Come and see for yourself.
You will not be disappointed. You will just want to take him home with you. And whoever does, will be one lucky human being, because you will have purchased a most extraordinary gelding. The best horse that I've ever sat on, and that's saying a lot, because I've been on too many to count.
Happy trails to you.....
