The world is full of many wonders… & this gelding is one of them. “Chili” is a 2009 AQHA gelding that is an own son of “Athena Puddy Cat” (LTE: $282k+, sired earners of over $1.6 Million). We know you can’t ride papers, but “Chili” is B-R-O-K-E, quiet in every situation we’ve put him in and gets along with every person I have had on his back regardless of their experience level or desired discipline! “Chili” is quite literally the horse you spend years, if not a lifetime trying to find, and the people don’t let go of. Whether you’re looking for a horse to take care of your kids and teach them to ride that will put up with their shenanigans and cart them around all day or something broke and dependable for yourself – this is your guy! “Chili” is fantastic both in the arena and out on the trail. He was originally started and shown as a cutting horse, giving him the perfect foundation that has clearly carried on with him throughout his entire life – making him the fun, easy going, well mannered, SUPER broke gelding that he is today! Has an exceptionally smooth jog, effortlessly picks up his leads, melts through every gait and rides one handed between your bridle reins just like one should. Has a good solid stop, turns around both ways, and has every other fancy button in the book but will also settle right down, walk around on a loose rein, and is so quiet and easy. Hop on bareback in a halter, take his bridle off and ride around… he’s educated! “Chili” is the best of BOTH worlds – completely enjoyable for everyone whether they’re a kid learning to ride for the first time or an experienced horseman wanting to ride one of the good ones. There’s no job too big or small for this dude. Lay him off for months and he’ll still ride off quiet. “Chili” is truly a perfect pick for the entire family in every respect. “Chili” is a down to earth kind of horse too, he doesn’t need a job or lots of excitement to keep him happy. He gets just as much enjoyment from simply being at home with the kids or going for a leisurely trail ride as he does anything else. This gorgeous gelding has been exposed to a little bit of everything and takes it all in stride. No matter where you want to go or what you want to do, “Chili” is game. No hesitation crossing water, riding thru to traffic, up and down hills or drop offs, etc. He’s not even phased by those pesky neighborhood dogs that charge the fence barking and carrying on. “Chili” is a prime example of his breeding. He displays tons of cow sense, athleticism, versatility, good minded, soundness and longevity. He has carried both entry level and pro riders to multiple big wins in Ranch horse, Sorting, Team penning and roping. You really are not limited to just one event with this guy, he can easily do it all and do it well. You can count on him for a good consistent ride every time. He works the hole very well, and can push cows out of the herd effectively and easily. Chili has been great for allowing us to use him for introducing new riders to sorting and helping grow the sport that many have come to love. He is a great equine partner that you can trust and depend on and is a huge asset to any ranch; will sort pairs, gather, brand, not to mention he will side pass up to any & every gate you ask him to. For those just looking for that safe and reliable trail family horse to enjoy riding around the farm, down the road or out on the trail, no worries, he can do that too! Chili is not just an all work and no play type horse. He has the sweetest personality and disposition, jump on him bareback with a halter and lead rope! On the ground he is just as gentle – he has a sweet, charming personality that is captivating to everyone around him but is still very respectful of your space and what you want from him. He is an interactive kind of horse, always wanting to learn and see new things. Chili stands to be groomed, bathed, clipped, saddled, mounted, etc. Even uses a mounting block if needed. Gets along with all of the other horses in the pasture. Currently located at out northern location in Shelbyville, KY but can be picked up in Stephenville, TX as well.
