Beck is a good looking 28 year old saddlebred gelding suitable for a companion horse or light riding with an intermediate rider. He appears to have been taught NOT to canter. He is in excellent health and is thriving on a couple teaspoons of oil, 2 cups of oat hay pellets, 2 cups of unmolassed beet pulp, and 2 cups of cider vinegar per day along with 14 pounds of 80%orchard/20%alfalfa hay. He had been neglected for years. I have since ridden him several times over the last month and he is advancing rapidly. He is utd on vaccinations, trims (okay barefoot), dental and worming. He does try to crowd his handler if not corrected from doing so. He needs conditioning, but is sound and willing to relearn. I could not upload pix which may be seen at https://slo.craigslist.org/grd/d/saddlebred-gelding/6353515055.html Beck shows no signs of 'old age.' He has a good topline and does bend at the ribs.
