Jake is a very handsome grade spotted saddle horse gelding that is 11 years old and stands 13.3 hands standing on 4 brand new shoes. Jake came from a close friend of mine, Jake had been his grandsons trail horse for the last 6 year. They have hauled him all over Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana on countless trail rides and some big rides with numerous riders and wagons. We have had Jake out alone and out on the trails with the group and he is the same horse both ways. He stays quiet and level headed. Jake is super gaited and easy to ride, he will gait barefoot but I did have him shod. He is very easy to shoe, bathe, tack and stands for mounting, he loads and unloads easily also.
