||Everybody loves "Hollywood".
He is like a big puppy dog that became a horse. I get frowns whenever somebody
at the ranch hears that I am willing to sell him - how dare I to part from
such a cute horse! I am wondering myself ...
Hollywood is an 11 year old
Halter bred Paint gelding, registered with APHA. He was a stud prospect
but didn't fill out as much as a Halter breeder likes to see, thus was
never used for breeding but gelded and used off and on under saddle.
His former owner had him
for 9 years before he came to me in Winter 2009/10.
He loves people and can stand
forever to be brushed. He handles great, loads, trailers, ties, stands
to get his feet done, no vices. He is very smooth gated and moves out nicely.
Last summer he was ridden
on a ranch with various, rough country (fallen trees, creeks, rocks, steep
canyon walls) to learn the basics to become a great partner on the trail.
He is very fine and loves
to move. He has a very easy and responsive handling and carries his head
nice, at this point a rider with soft hands would be best with him even
though he is safe and sane enough for anybody to ride. No buck or any other
undesirable behavior. I do not consider him a finished trail horse but
he has enough experience for most anybody who can ride.
