One Handsome Buckskin Looking for a Home, a Friend and trail companion!

Tanner and I sadly must part. I am unable to ride anymore and he needs a new rider and friend. I have been fortunate enough to have four friends ride him, but careers and parenthood means that Tanner really should have a new and better life. Two of my riders have been most capable and expert; the others beginner to low intermediate. All have found him a joy. His full discription was penned by one of his favorite riders.

Description

Tanner is a beautiful buckskin horse with a dark golden body, black socks with white hind pasterns, black mane and tail. (pictures don't do justice! People see him passing the farm and comment.) Tanner enjoys the simple things in life like grazing in the sun and eating lots of carrots. His overall temperament is a 3/10. Tanner is a little head-shy and requires more patience and slow movement around the face. It does not take long for hime to warm up to you and enjoy a good brush. An intermediate rider is preferred as Tanner can be stubborn, but with direct instructions and a strong leg he listens well. In his younger years Tanner lived the ranch life (Montana) and now enjoys western pleasure and trail riding in both English and Western attire. He does well in enclosed or open arenas and on trail rides. He responds to direct reining and enjoys new experiences, is well-mannered with other horses, and while being worked on the ground. Tanner is a sweet horse that is looking for a relaxed home to enjoy being loved on and cared for by a new owner that can bond and create a good working relationship with him.

Note: I have had Tanner for five years now. Tanner is not registered and is believed by our Vet to be between 18 and 20 years old. He stands very well for the farrier and is seen twice a year for shots and exam by his vet.
