Description

Skipper is 14.2 hands tall and a beautiful Bay. He's a high-spirited and intelligent horse, and learns quickly with the right person. He can be difficult to catch, but can be bribed with treats. He has been backed in a round pen, and desensitized using Parelli. Skipper needs an experienced trainer/handler who is willing to give this beautiful boy time and patience. Of all the horses in the "Small Pen" at the time of rescue, he has the most trust issues. But once he has bonded with someone he sticks tight.

He does tolerate the farrier fairly well with lots of encouragement. He trailers very well. 

Skipper has been moved around quite a bit due to circumstances beyond his control. Gentle Spirits would really love to find him his permanent home and allow his to finally settle in forever.  Skipper is currently in a training foster home in Iowa.
