DUKE – 2014 GRADE Blue Roan Gelding.

If you are looking for a horse that is absolutely bomb proof for your green rider or kid, then Duke is it. He is heavy built, 15.2 hands with a great wither that won’t let a saddle roll. I have had him for 3 years and bought him for my 8 yr old son to ride. He has rode him a million miles in the mountains. He is extremely easy going, not in a hurry to go anywhere, and has never once spooked or got worried on the trail. My son crawls all over him, jumps on him bareback, can lead him and load him with no issues. I have never had a horse like Duke before. He loves attention and has a puppy dog personality. Park him anywhere and that’s where he’s going to stay. I use him every fall to put green hunters on and I have them ride him in a halter. We have rode several 20 mile rides in snow, mud, rain, you name it and he is safe as can be. I just can’t say enough about how gentle he is. He sits unused from November to May every year and I throw the kid saddle on and off we go each spring. I have never had to ride him first. He doesn’t get fresh and is definitely happy walking down the trail. We haven’t spent any time teaching him to be an arena horse, we specifically bought him to trail ride. And he’s absolutely been worth his weight in gold to us for the kids. The video of him trotting through the barrels is the first time he has ever seen the pattern and he went everywhere he was asked with no issues. He has a club foot on the front right with a picture that is included on the video. If you would like information on how my farrier shoes him please feel free to call and he is willing to talk to anyone about it. All clips in this video are from the last 10 days. We love Duke and hate to see him go. You won’t regret buying him for your kids to enjoy. LOCATION: Craig, CO. VIDEO: https://youtu.be/MZV3OaHW2LA FMI: 970-629-9341. Coggins. YT76
