Bosco is a 12 yr old KY Mountain gelding, standing 15.1 hands tall with a very stocky build. He’s a very affectionate guy and truly loves people. He’s well minded and very eager to please.
It’s rare to say, but this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime horse for the whole family! We won’t just say it, though. We hate to see him go, but my kids already have their own horses. He’s just a joy to have around.
Bosco is broke in every way and would be suitable for any level rider. We welcome you to come to try him out for the day! We have many trails and a creek conveniently located on our farm. We’d be happy to help you get to know Bosco better on a more personal note. Bosco has been the go-to guy since we’ve had him for our children and the neighborhood beginner children. He’s attending a Birthday party this Saturday!
We’ve personally known this horse for eight years. We’ve camped overnight with Bosco, and you’d never know he’s around. You won’t find a quieter horse on the picket line. Bosco has been trail-ridden extensively throughout Kentucky.
Bosco is comfortable and familiar with dogs on the trails, Highway traffic, farm equipment, construction equipment, cattle, and ATVs/motorcycles. When you need to pony a yearling across the pasture, he’s the guy you grab. Bosco hadn’t been ridden in almost a year when we got him out, and he will be the same horse every time you get him out. No gimmicks, tricks, or funny business to this guy whatsoever. He’s just an honest horse.
Bosco is very calm-natured and laid back but not lazy. We recently framed our house with air hoses, nail guns, saws running, and hammering. All the while, our three girls took turns riding Bosco single, double, and triple. I trusted him to take care of them, and I didn’t have to worry because he’s just that kind of horse.
Even with his age, he could still be taught some cool tricks. He’s a very smart dude, and he responds well to learning new things.
If preferred, Bosco will stand to mount from any object or a mounting block with no problems! He is exceptional in a crowd of horses, leading, middle, or back of the pack. He could care less where you put him. Bosco will also pull a cart!
Bosco has a very nice head shaking run-walk or will step on up in gait and canters. No doubt this guy could go to a Saturday night horse show and win a blue in the County Pleasure class with that head-shaking run-walk. Bosco gets along well with all the other horses in the pasture and is always easy to catch and the first one to you. He loads and unloads with ease onto a trailer—with or without a ramp.
Boscos ground manners are impeccable. Bosco is just a big teddy bear, and it doesn’t matter how small the child is leading him around. He’s very cautious and aware of his surroundings. I’ve honestly never owned a more well-minded, easy-going horse. He’s a true gentleman! Bosco will stand quietly UNTIED for grooming, bathing, and saddling. He stands patiently for the farrier and clipping too!
