Hank is the ultimate versitle ranch/show horse that ypu have been looking for. Your search is over if you want a horse that is spouse and kid friendly in the show pen or just out on the trail and easy to ride. Hank enjoys going slow, so he should continue to excel in Ranch Riding, Pleasure, and Ranch Trail where he has already won a ASHA National Championship. He was also Top 10 at the 2019 APHA World Show in Ranch Reining, Ranch Riding, and Ranch Trail.
I have roped off of him as well as my 8 yr old son, and he is good, safe and quite with a rope. We have been using him around the ranch to pushing, sorting and doctoring cattle, he has a big stop and a nice spin. He is very good out in open country where nothing seems to bother him, and as a bonus he rides bridless!
Hank has no issues with being clipped, standing for the farrier, and hauls well. If we need a horse that anyone can trail ride, show, or day work, we pick Hank.
Hank has been collected and has quality semen. He is super easy to handle and acts like a perfect gentleman. He is also Homozygous Tobiano and 5 panel N/N
