Quarter Horse Mustang

Joey was previously adopted and has had saddle training, but returned to GSH due to some bucking. After evaluation, it was found that Joey had a sore back and was allowed a year off to heal. Saddle fit with Joey is extremely important as he is very reactive to ill fitting saddles. Since returning to GSH main, Joey has been evaluated on the ground and shown very good ground manners. He has also accepted a saddle but is still weary of someone getting on his back. Joey will need a patient experienced rider and/or trainer to get him to trust riders again. Joey is a sensitive boy who just needs someone to understand him and love him. Will you be it?

Joey is a very friendly, easy to handle horse. He's good for farrier, leads and loads, and seeks out attention. He does not like fly spray and needs a refresher on his ground work now that his back is healed.
