NOTES: “Checkers” is just the guy every family is looking for! He is a jack of all trades, not only has he been shown in halter, western pleasure, trail, and English classes he also trail rides the very best and is safe for all levels of riders to learn how to ride on. Checkers is extra gentle, puppy dog personality, meets you at the gate to be caught and loved on, and loves every ounce of attention he can get. He is as solid broke as they get, doesn’t require regular riding or tuning, stays slow and quiet, and is always absolutely safe to be around and ride. Checkers has all of the fancy buttons of a show horse but will also ride to the level of rider on his back. Stands to mount and dismount at the mounting block, great with obstacles, tarps, flags, and any commotion you can think of. If you are looking for Safe, Solid, and Seasoned he is your guy! Stands 15.3hh. 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.
