NOTES: Cool, classy and a complete gentleman. Tabasco is one of the most genuine geldings I have ever thrown a leg over. He will take care of any level of rider. If you can hold his reins, you will be able to ride him. Tabasco runs a pretty reining pattern with a comfortable slow lope, fast smooth spins, effortless lead changes and a deep stop. He would make a great youth or novice show horse in the reining, ranch riding and versatility. He is as honest as the day is long and is always gentle even with time off. Tabasco is great outside and on the trails. He will go right where you point him without hesitation. He’s always pleasure to ride, not spooky, confident alone, and has a nice ground covering walk. Tabasco has been used all over the ranch to to gather, sort, and doctor cattle. He has also been roped on out of the box. No silly stuff, he’s all business. He runs the same run every time. Tabasco has a sweet disposition and a fun personality. Whatever you decide to do with him, he’s happy to do it. He is an own son of leading reining sire, Gunner, producer of of 11 million. Tabasco is a gorgeous gelding with great conformation and a cherry red color. For more info call Mozaun at 505-470-4872. 15HH
