Handsome is a 5-year old AQHA gelding standing at 16.2 hands--and what a specimen he is! Even with his imposing size, Handsome is as affectionate and good-natured as a horse (or anybody!) can be.
He's not only passed our set of non-negotiable behaviors and traits, this big boy has proven himself to be reliable, forgiving and trustworthy with all kinds of riders--from the most seasoned to beginners and even to little cowgirls and boys!
Handsome was started as a western pleasure horse--he's smooth and easy to ride and never in a hurry to get anywhere. Handsome highlines and hobbles and you can crawl all over him. From sliding off his butt, or standing up on him while popping an Australian Stock Whip, NOTHING bothers Handsome.
Unperturbable on the trail, Handsome is great alone, with a group, and in any situation that comes up, Handsome stays solid. If your group leaves you, "Mr. Reliable" couldn't care less! Handsome's kind and reliable nature combined with his beautiful low headset and natural abilities make him a stand out individual.
He truly has no bad habits and is always happy to be in your company. He would make a stellar competitive trail horse or the perfect everyday trail companion. You don't come by gentle big guys like Handsome very often. For anyone looking for that "bomb proof" horse, here he is and he has his whole life in front of him.
