"Apache " is a 10 year old 14.2 hand Paint gelding This is a nice horse, that can be ridden on the trails, in the pasture, in the pens, in the arena, and around crowds. He has never shown me any bad habits, rides with a loose rein, and turns, stops, and backs up good. He is easy to catch, load, shoe, saddle, and mount. This horse rides best with a lite tie down. He is super gentle,but I think he is to responsive to his riding cues to be ridden by the beginner and novice riders. He has never gotten fresh after being turned out, nor is he spooky or shy. He is laid back, yet responsive to his cues. This horse is a little timid at feeding time if there are any aggressive horses in the pen. He is a nice all around kind of horse.
