NOTES: “Benz” may be the nicest horse we have ever owned! Not only is he absolutely gorgeous, he is sooo trained in all aspects, extremely safe and gentle, and by Cromed Out Mercedes! Benz started his career in the reining where he has NRHA earnings, then went on to the roping pen where he really excels both in the heeling and breakaway. He has been in great hands his whole life and it shows, he is a fancy huge stopper, quiet in the box, tons of rate, and truly loves his job. Benz has been hauled and is seasoned and solid. He is far from just a rope horse, Benz can truly do it all and do it all well. Whether you want a fancy reiner, rope horse, ranch rider, family horse, or just a solid easy going trail horse Benz is the guy for you. He is just the right size, beautiful put together, total sweetheart to be around, and most importantly he is SAFE! He is the perfect age where you aren’t going to show him anything new, he’s a been there done that type of guy that we absolutely love! I trusted this horse enough to pull him out of his stall and ride him when I was 9 months pregnant just to keep my sanity. This is one of the nicest all around geldings I have ever swung my leg over. Horses like Benz don’t come up for sale very often, take full advantage! He is absolutely a barn favorite around here, if you came to buy the nicest horse at the auction you better not leave without Benz! Stands 14.2hh. Sound, current on deworming, shoes, radiographs available, and coggins. For more info go to www.schmitthorseranch.com or call Riley @ 507-459-8654 or Kyle @ 608-434-4789.
