Golds Handmedown [Pappy]

Simply put, Pappy is the man. He is a rare combination of stocky, strong, stand-up good-looking for cows, kids, trails, or the arena. You name it; he does it and does it better than the rest. He is one of the best personal top-of-the-list horses we have ever had.
Watch the video and come ride Pappy for yourself. He will park out for an easy mount and is the only TWH we have ever worked with that has the temperament, athleticism, and calm-minded gentleness to go perfectly with a signature smooth four-beat gait. Bringing the best of the TWH breed with the looks and ability of a quarter horse, he would be a unicorn if he had a horn.
TEMPERAMENT – Pappy is every rider’s favorite. From kids to guests to cowboys who want to sort and track, his mind is always “right.” As you can see from the video, he is ready, willing, and more than able for anything we ask him to do. Traffic, animals, tarps, flags, crowds, sirens, lights, you name it – no problem for Pappy.
CONFORMATION – He checks every box. Thick and muscular in perfect proportions with the head of a superstar, he will always be the best-looking horse in the pasture.
COLOR – Pappy is a little sun-bleached at the moment but is a rich and perfect Palomino in color.
EXPERIENCE/ABILITY – First and foremost, Pappy is and would make the perfect horse for serious trail riders. He is absolutely one of the best we have seen. With his size, he is equipped to carry anyone, and when you ask him to gait or lope, he steps up and out with smooth perfection.
He came to us as an experienced trail horse with a good mind and many miles under saddle. He has ridden in large and small groups, caring for new riders. Having now completed our full program, he has the best ground and saddle training you can find – from basic lunging, flexing, picking up his shoulders, moving off your legs, and desensitizing to the obstacle course. All of this has been reinforced by practical experience and many hours doing his job. He can do anything a kid or cowboy asks and is an all-around winner.
If you like water, mud, and steep trails, just point Pappy in the direction you want to go.
Need to move cows? He tracks, cuts, opens, and closes gates and regularly moves cows, and after a long day in the saddle, you still feel loose and ready to ride again. There is nothing under saddle this fine horse won’t willingly and capably do.
He is 100% sound with no issues, vices, or barn problems. He stands to be saddled, trimmed, bathed and used as a diving board in ponds and on trampolines. Whatever you want to do, Pappy has been there and done that.
