Hooch - SOLD!
(Kentucky Mountain Horse, not registered)
Kentucky Moonshine, (aka "Hooch"), 8 yr old gelding. Chocolate with mixed flaxen mane and tail, 15.1+H. Hooch is being restarted (two months in training) and in some ways still green. For this reason, he is best suited for an intermediate or better rider. Need to have soft hands. Hooch will progress in his training if he is getting confidence and trust from his handler/rider. Good ground manners. Wants to be with people. Easy to bathe, catch, lead and is an easy keeper. Has mostly been barefoot. Riding with a bitless bridle or a comfort snaffle. He is happier with the bitless, but is gaining more trust with the bit. Just had his teeth floated, sheath cleaned and up to date on vaccinations and deworming. He stands for mounting, walks on a loose rein, gait is getting more consistent. Have cantered him some. Owner is selling due to her age (73 years old) and not able to ride a green horse. It is important that Hooch gets a good home.
