King is a 2015 AQHA Gelding that you’ll be proud to hang your saddle on! 365 days a year he will have you feeling like royalty, but his priority isn’t about his looks, it’s about his inner loyalty. (Ok I promise the Dr. Suess stuff ends here) With his dappled silver coat, exceptional pedigree, and impeccable build, he is sure to be the talk of the town – but ONLY for all the right reasons! King has been used for daily for everyone in the family, no matter their age, size, confidence level, experience, or discipline. He’s taken complete beginners & those lacking confidence out on the ranch, down the trail, and around the arena more times than we can begin to count. This handsome gelding is a product of PLAYGUN, PEPTOBOONSMAL & KING breeding – with bloodlines like that you are sure to have a pretty, versatile, cowy and athletic horse, all of which he is & then some. Ask any old timer or expert in the horse industry & they’ll tell you that you can’t find a pedigree much better than his. Since day 1 King has been special, he was raised & trained on the same ranch & was shown in the working cow horse his 3yo year. He is super light, broke, has NO vices & has done every aspect of ranch work including gathering, sorting & branding. He has traveled all over the map to put on his work clothes & go right to business! The rolling hills of Central Texas, in the red bluffs of Sundance, Wyoming, and across the vast plains & big skies of Belle Fourche, South Dakota! Additionally, King has been started on the heeling side! When you pair his size & his fun stops together, it’s a no brainer that he would make an awesome breakaway horse that’s also still quiet enough for ANYONE to take and enjoy riding on the trails. King has been our “go to” horse. Even on cold, snowy Wyoming winter days when cow work must get done, he never lets us down. It doesn’t matter how long he’s been sitting, he will ride off like the saint that he is & never miss a beat. He is the one that we KNOW we can count on to get the job done right the first time, taking care of us no matter the circumstance. He has a quiet disposition, is very personable & SAFE!!! King is also the first horse we grab when someone comes to visit who may be a “little green”, he’s who they ride because he’s simply so honest & makes everyone feel welcome when they’re on his back. The knack he has to be able to instantaneously adjust to the skill level of his rider is unrivaled. I haven’t ever seen or even ridden another horse that does it quite like he does. In fact, King is so pleasurable for even the most of novice riders that they can’t wait to get on him again, he makes everybody feel like somebody! BEWARE: I’ll just warn you now, the worst part about King is that your kids, spouse, family members, friends &/or neighbors are all going to bicker about who gets to ride him. Last summer King had an especially important job that involved showing a newcomer the “ropes” – day after day King happily & patiently helped teach a 14 yo boy who was learning to gather cows, sort & track the breakaway dummy. I love how at ease King makes people feel, rarely do you get to get on a horse and just take a deep breath and enjoy the ride for exactly what it is. I promise you’ll feel completely at home as soon as you swing your leg over this one. In all actuality, saying that King is “super broke” does him no justice. He really has the ideal, faultless foundational training that he’ll have for a lifetime no matter where he goes or what he does. There were no short cuts taken in making him, he has been in the most qualified hands since day 1 & this kind of preparation has made him readily equipped to handle just about anything or any situation you can throw at him! Not many horses are as smooth or comfortable as King either, it doesn’t matter if you’re at a walk, trot or lope – you won’t wake up after you ride feeling like you were on a jack hammer for 6 hours the day prior. King has the desirable “pitter-patter” type of slow jog until YOU decide that YOU want to pick up the pace into an extended trot or right into his steady slow lope! He is feather light in the bridle (often times we even ride him in a bosal), is responsive to leg cues, profound neck rein – he’s always sure to stay right between the bridle reins, & travels out mesmerizingly fluid at all gaits as well. When out on the trail or riding through more urban settings, you’ll find that he’s still an upright individual! Going under, over, through, or around any other REAL-LIFE obstacles found when you’re out enjoying the day. Unbothered by pedestrians, vehicles, barking dogs, bikes, trashcans, & so on… & Not to mention, King has seen more wildlife than a National Park Trail Guide! Never offering to spook at antelope, deer, turkeys, coyotes, elk, birds, or snakes. Do you like to have your dog follow along side of you when you go out for a ride? King is very familiar with man’s best friend trailing right with him. He walks out at just the right pace – covers plenty of ground without being too fast or intimidating & isn’t so slow that you are pedaling him all day long to try to keep up with your pals! He’s not only a babysitter when you’re on his back, but on the ground too! King is a full-fledged gentleman to be around, he’s safe no matter who is handling him. Minds his manners, is easy to catch anywhere, gets along with all our other horses/livestock when turned out, or stays happy in the barn, loads great, ties quiet, & stands like a pro to be groomed, saddled, bridled, bathed & passively stands still for mount or dismount. Standing at 15 hands, he’s the perfect size to pack around any rider – man, woman or child. King has been cared for as well as my own kid & has always been tended to in the most properly detailed ways. UTD on all dental, deworming, vaccinations, Coggins, and farrier work. He is barefoot, his hooves are dark, well made & proportionate but if shoes are a must for you, he stands superb for the farrier. Owning a horse like king has been an honor for my family & I. I know that we will never be able to replace him but unfortunately, I am faced with the fact that we have two businesses and several colts that have grown up to starting age. It is clear that spare time is going to be nonexistent in our household for a while. King deserves to be treated like exactly what he is – a king. There is zero reason a horse like him should sit around & miss out on the chance to do life with another family or special person. Here is an opportunity for someone to have a shot at getting their total dream horse!!! He’s the horse who is a fit for everyone: unparalleled match for the leisurely trail rider or the avid adventure seeker, the perfect asset for any rancher looking for a horse they can depend on no matter the job, the ultimate mount for the ranch rider or ranch versatility competitor at any level, & he’s beyond qualified for the single most prestigious job any horse can have – teaching, building confidence, & showing folks both young & old what it’s like to be a horsemen! King is in a league of his own & is in the prime of his life. He has the looks, disposition, conformation, & talent for a lifetime of memories. If you are looking for that once in a lifetime horse – you found him. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about this special guy. King gets his name honestly because he is one royally bred horse! His sire is an own son of “PLAYGUN” (An All-Time Leading Cutting and Reined Cow Horse sire since 2003, PLAYGUN has influenced multiple disciplines and is a name that resonates with people of the Western performance horse industry.
