Hondo is a 15.3 hand grade gelding. 5 years old.

Hecame to me thin and nervous. He was supposed to be my summer project however plans change. Hondo was previously used in the feedlot and outside. He has a great handle and really breaks at the poll!!!! Hondo does not have a mean bone in his body but is nervous and he’s learning to be more people friendly!!!! He even likes the give hugs ❤

I’ve done nothing but ground work mostly for the past few months. I bought him as a nice riding horse but watchy on the ground: which is VERY true. However i didn’t realize when he is watchy on the ground he will buck. He has never bucked with me the few times i have rode him or had people ride him but you can absolutely feel how nervous and scared he is. But he has bucked when im saddling and doing ground work if he gets scared!!!!! HE IS NOT A BRONC! He is very easily talked out of it.

He loads in any trailer and unloads too. He is shod on all 4 because my place is rocky but i feel he would be fine barefoot. He is pastured with other mares and geldings, and he is stalled at night. He is low on the totem pole and not buddy sour at all. I’ve worked with him a lot and he is very easy to catch in a stall but i have not tried in our 20 acres. He does come up and want to be friendly.

Send him to a trainer for a few months, or train him yourself. Next year he will be worth 3x what he is now. He is very athletic and fast. He knows how to spin, collect, stop, lope both ways etc.

I feel like someone with more experience and knowledge will be able to make this horse a xx,xxx horse as he is SMART!!! But that is not me. I WILL NOT ALLOW TEST RIDES!! I HAVE MANY VIDEOS OF HIM BEING RIDDEN!!!
PPE is always welcome at buyers expense💯
