Chip is a 16 y/o Appendix gelding, 16hh approx. His owner passed away from cancer, so we took him in to find him a new home. He is polite, was easy to handle once haltered, loaded well and gets along with the other horses and he is turning out to be a bit of a teddy bear too!
Chip is broke to ride and used to be a mountain trail horse. He lunges and is quiet for tacking. He is definitely trained Western and was a little energetic, but is very well behaved. He moves nice and is very responsive, even drops his head and holds it with little encouragement from the leg. He yields to the leg, neck reins and knows some voice commands.
He went on trial, but was returned as him and the other horse on the property didn't mesh, so he is available for adoption again through no fault of his own. His trial mom noted: Chip takes a few min to settle down once in hand, but once he does is very quiet and respectful. Stands quiet for tacking up an mounting. Great with feet, shy about his ears, but comes along very quickly just needs a bit of trust and work with being caught. Very sweet emotional gelding, wants to bond with one person.
