15.3HH 13 YO, ROCKY MOUNTAIN GELDING
+ BARE FOOT + GENTLE + TRAIL + GROUND MANNERS +
Unregistered Rocky Mountain Gelding. Thirteen years old. I have VIDEOS of everything you want to see… including a full go-pro video of him during a 9 mile hunter pace recently!
❤️ The good:
-Sound, sound, sound!
-Automatic smooth 4 beat gait, slow or can move out pretty fast too – gaits all day long!
-Rides out alone or in a group, in any position!
-Horses run up behind you suddenly he won’t lose his mind
-Other horses acting out afraid to cross water or a bridge he doesn’t care and will go first even
-Miles and miles and miles (hundreds) of trail experience throughout WNC/Upstate area
-Goes through any water, any terrain, any bridge, any ditches, no hesitation just point and go
-Excellent trail horse, polite on trail – no bite or kicking other horses
-Easiest loader in history of Horses
-Good solid bone
-Barefoot and tough as nails, even on gravel
-Stands tied ***all day*** or great in a corral
-Picks up all 4 feet
-Stands for grooming and tack and fly spray
-Easy to bridle doesn’t put head up or try to evade
-Good with his ears
-Bathes and clips
-NO biting or kicking
-Blankets without a problem
-Perfect for the vet
-Perfect for the Farrier
-Easy to be around
-Up to date on teeth, vaccines, and Coggins
-Built for endurance – big stout boy that carries heavy rider for ten plus miles each weekend with no problems
-If you want a gaited horse to gait everywhere you go without getting tired this is the guy for you
-Has been ridden at huge rides with hundreds of horses around
-Safely pastured in with goats and dogs
-Pastured next to cows no problem
-Very gentle soul, respectful
-Joins up in the round pen, Monty Roberts + Clinton Anderson type ground work
-Loves a cookie
I’m a personal horse owner, not a barn that regularly sells / horse trader, so:
The bad – he’s not perfect (if we’re truthful, I don’t think any horse really is)
-does occasionally spook like any horse (but almost always just freezes temporarily then moves on)
-he needs to see a professional trainer to work on cantering. He would be *perfect* for as a Field Trial horse or just gaiting trail riding all day.
-still have to remind him to hold still for mounting, but he will with reminders
-takes some time to bond with new person
-is a forward mover and strong, not for a timid rider.
A confident husband though? Sure! Just point and he goes Please text me for a fast answer! Or leave a voicemail and I’ll call you back.

Proxy bidding is an automatic bidding system that is great to use! Entering a proxy amount allows the system to automatically bid on your behalf. This keeps you from having to babysit the auction. It also protects your maximum bid by not displaying that amount until you are bid against. We advise entering your max bid especially if you will be away from your electronic device or in a poor service area at the end of the auction. To place a proxy, or automatic, bid simply enter the amount of your maximum bid into the Custom Bid box. This allows the system to automatically enter your next bid $100 above contending bidders until your maximum bid is met or the auction ends, whichever comes first. You may also increase your maximum bid at any time without it displaying until you are bid against. If your maximum bid is reached and you are outbid, you will receive an email letting you know that you have been outbid.
Buy It Now:
If the bidding process is NOT for you, we offer a Buy It Now (BIN) option. This option allows you to purchase a horse immediately without waiting until the auction closes. The Buy It Now (BIN) option is available at the seller’s discretion. If the seller offers a Buy It Now option, a bidder can purchase that horse immediately at a price set by the seller. When the “Buy It Now” button is selected, the auction will end immediately. At that time, the purchaser is responsible to make payment arrangements with Classic Horse Auction. You may either be invoiced or you may pay via credit card (a 4% processing fee will be added for all credit card transactions). The “Buy It Now” option will be removed prior to the close of the auction.
Please be aware that if a bid is placed within 5 minutes of the close of the auction, an additional 5 minutes will be added to the clock. Time will extend for each new bid placed until 5 minutes has gone by with no new bids.
In the event of technical issues (site crash, server glitch, etc.) within the last 10 minutes of the auction that prevent you from placing your bid, please contact Hope Jenne (615-545-6488) within TEN MINUTES of the close of the auction.
Non Payment Fee:
Buyers are required to make payment by the close of business the following day. Purchasers who do not will be charged a $1,000 fee to the card on file. This also applies to purchasers using the Buy It Now option.
