Gizmo is a very sweet horse with a soft eye and a willing attitude. He is very trusting and really tries to please. He will come to you in the pasture when you call him and really likes being with people. His owner has been riding him frequently on the trails for over 3 years. He crosses water, mud and watches his footing carefully. Gizmo has been ridden locally at the LBJ National Grasslands and has traveled as far as Arkansas to be ridden on the Bar 50 ranch trails. He has also completed several multi-day rides, riding as many as 20 or 25 miles for up to 5 days in a row. He is always willing to go back out on trail on his multi-day rides. His owner rides him with a hackamore, but as you can see from his videos he also rides well with a bit. Gizmo is a large boned, substantially built horse. His gaits are smooth and comfortable to ride for hours. He walks quietly into the trailer and backs out easily. He will also stand calmly tied to the trailer for long periods of time.
His owner’s wife has switched to a gaited horse, so now Gizmo’s owner has decided to follow suit and also “go gaited”. Gizmo would excel in competitive trail where his trail experience, calm nature and willing attitude would really be a plus.
