Buck is doing great at his new home in Alberta! He was a little sore after arrival but seems to have found his stride again :) He has made friends with one of the mares and is loving having so much room to roam - you can see it in his smile! We couldn't be happier for this deserving older dude.

Buck is a 26 year old, 14.3hh Quarter Horse gelding. We picked him up yesterday from a senior gentleman who was no longer able to care for him due to a serious illness.
This handsome gelding is friendly, loves human attention and is a total gentleman to handle. He loads, hauls, leads, is good on the road, good for the farrier, etc. He shows a little wear in his suspensories, but otherwise looks fantastic for his age.
Buck is a little rusty but he is easy to ride and knows how to neck rein, was soft in the bit and has a nice smooth gait. We had no problems on the road with traffic and I even opened a gate off his back! He is very sound and has a lovely jog. He really is just a happy go-lucky boy with no spook/buck/bolt.
Despite his age, Buck is still quite peppy and shows no signs of arthritis (just the wear in his suspensories). He would be a great first horse for a confident beginner looking for a light to moderate riding partner to hit the road or trails with!
He is located in Maple Ridge and his is adoption fee is $500 with a trial period. Please e-mail us or submit an adoption application today if interested in this cool older dude!
