Cooper is a sound, "user-friendly" horse with a lovable personality, who is built like a TANK. He is by "Winnie's Willy" (Superior Western Pleasure Horse) out of a "Chip of Amos" mare and is triple registered AQHA/APHA/PtHA. He spent 3 months with a reining trainer and 4 months with a pleasure trainer in 2018-2019. He is a lovely athletic gelding with lots of miles. He needs finishing to be a real contender at the bigger shows (price reflects this), however he has been ridden all around on the roads and trails and has a good handle. With his easy going, "safe" temperament, I am confident that any amateur or older youth could finish him out with no issues.
He has been hauled around and shown in many open shows. He has a pitter-patter western jog and can move out for the English. He lopes around with a level topline and has a great whoa. He knows his leads, simple lead change, has a good start on his Horsemanship and Showmanship pivots, and will do all of the trail obstacles without hesitation. He can be a big lazy boy sometimes, but he is absolutely not a dead-head and he would be athletic enough to try whatever you put him up to!
He is an all-around gentleman with absolutely no vices, quirks, or complaints! He loads, ties, bathes, clips, and is good for the farrier. Awesome with time off (in the video, that was the first time he'd been ridden pretty much all winter!). Super easy to haul and have at the shows. He is content in a stall or out in the pasture with the herd. He stands still for saddling and mounting (even bareback!). Cooper will get along with just about anyone. He has never offered to buck, rear, or kick. He is 5 panel N/N by parentage, 100% sound and he has never had any health issues. Vet checks welcome. He has always been sound, healthy, and barefoot. Can help arrange affordable shipping.
