Description:

Atlas is an 11-year-old Grade Tennessee Walking Horse Gelding standing 15.3 hands on a flat trail shoe. This big, gorgeous, gray horse is super smooth, stylish, fancy & moves beautifully. He carries his head high, picks his feet up off the ground, shakes, walks, and moves with style and poise. He has a super smooth 4-beat gait, a splendid lope, and has a beautiful rocking chair canter. Atlas is a reliable, sure-footed Rockstar with good common sense and plenty of experience out on the trail. He goes anywhere you point him, is easy to handle, not spooky, rides anywhere (front, back, middle, or alone). He neck reins and will go any speed you want without any hesitation or problems. He is a little “forward” but also easy to control and handle at any speed. He has a soft mouth and responds to very light input. We ride him with just a straight Weaver Tom Thumb Snaffle bit (model 25-5130) with 6 ½” cheeks, and he does great. Want him to walk at a nice leisurely, head-shaking pace? No problem! Want him to move out and pick up the pace? Just gather up the reins and ask him to go, and he’ll willingly break into a super smooth 4-beat gait, lope, or canter on demand! He’s always ready to go and aims to please. This big, strong boy has the size, build, power, and finesse to carry just about any size rider with style, safety, grace and comfort all day long. He has the motor, energy, stamina, and fitness to easily handle all-day rides (20+ miles) and multi-day camping trips. He’s been on numerous overnight camping trips and does well on a stakeout or Highline. Out on the trail, he handles tight, narrow, technical trails without hesitation, goes up & down steep hills and inclines like a breeze, and handles all kinds of obstacles with ease. He crosses logs, water, mud, rocks, ditches, mounds, railroad tracks, paved roads, driveways, overpasses, underpasses, pallets, mattress (yes, even mattresses), or just about anything else you put in front of him without hesitation. He’s traffic safe and good with dogs, quads, gunshots, tunnels, tarps, flags, etc. He is a smart, submissive, trainable, and cooperative horse who genuinely tries to please and will do just about anything you ask once he understands what you want. He stands stationary for grooming, tacking/untacking, and bathing. Just touch any leg, and he automatically picks up his foot on his own and holds it for cleaning (see video) and is good with the Farrier. He ground ties, parks out & stands to mount/dismount on both sides. He easily loads and unloads in any trailer. Atlas is suitable for any rider, advanced beginner or better. He may snort and breathe heavily when a strange person crowds his space on the ground however he is not mean & doesn’t act stupid. He is friendly, easy to catch, and will come to you on his own (once he becomes familiar with you). He has a healthy appetite and is not a picky eater, so it’s easy to put weight on and keep weight on him. He is easy to board, doesn’t have any bad habits, isn’t buddy or barn sour, and gets along well with other horses and animals. He has new shoes on all fours, doesn’t have any notable scars, and is up to date on his Coggins, shots, & vet exam.

Located in Palmdale, CA 93550 (1 hour north of Los Angeles off the 14 Freeway). He is available for viewing & inspection by appointment.
