Flame is a grade gelding retired ranch horse. He's just about 16h, about 21 years old, and as broke as they come. He stands great for the farrier, loads well, no bad habits, and fantastic with kids. After he retired he was a childs rodeo horse and use to traveling to shows. The owner had bought him for her 4 year old who is now 6. She rode him as a pleasure horse but due to health reasons she's not riding now.
Flame has great feet and stands perfect for the farrier. He does have arthritis in his right shoulder which is better if he is ridden or lunged regularly. She rides him and he's fine but he will get a little sore if asked to pick up his pace. He's perfect (and prefers) when her son rides him. He's great for all levels of riders!
Serious inquiries only she wants them to go to good homes with someone who can provide for them. Teeth, vaccines, worming, feet, all done routinely. 1,100
