Tonto is broke to ride and goes Western. He has been on trails and in parades. He has not been ridden in some time and should have a refresher in training. Tonto is best suited as a pasture buddy for another equine who would be kind to him, or for a beginner who would like to do light riding.
Tonto has sensitive eyes and likes to wear a fly mask or fringe during the summer. He has a heart arrhythmia, or heart block, which does not affect him at this time. During poor weather, Tonto will need a snug barn and a high quality senior diet (beet pulp, senior grain, etc.).
