Meet Rusty! Here’s the opportunity to own a 5 year old, 15 h, quarter horse gelding that is Genuine Doc and CD Olena bred. Rusty has been there and done that. All of it! Rusty is the “go anywhere” trustworthy type. Point him and he will go. We have had this amazing gelding since we started him as a 2 year old. We have used him extensively on the ranch as well as the arena. We’ve used him to gather pairs, pair out, doctor and tag calves, sort, and wean. He was used all Spring in the branding pen and drags calves to the fire with ease. Rusty has been ridden through some of the roughest terrain in the Nebraska Sandhills, through the Black Hills of South Dakota, and the wheat fields of West Texas. He crosses water, logs, bridges, rocks, and brush with ease! He has no problem climbing up and down steep terrain whether it be sandy, muddy, dry, or rocky. He rides off alone and is sure footed. He’s been used in our lesson program with junior high and high school ages kids. He’s been hauled to many different arenas and rides right off every time! Rusty has his lead changes, a great stop, and a long, smooth stride to get you where you need to be. This gelding can be quick when asked, but knows when to come right back and take care of the less experienced riders. He’s as gentle as they come, loads every day, and isn’t afraid to go to work. Rusty has the potential to make a jam up breakaway, barrel, pole, or goat tying gelding. He stalls, dry-lots, or pastures with other horses with no problems. We have always kept him trimmed barefoot with no soundness issues. He does have one very old scar on his left-front fetlock he got as a weanling. He has never taken a lame step and we have clean x-rays of it available. Both of his sire and dam are AQHA registered and he comes with all paperwork to be registered. Call or Text Emily Smith at 619-971-4539 absolutely anytime for ANY additional info or questions you have! Rusty is located in Rapid City, South Dakota.
