Solid and gentle without being lazy, Eli is fun to ride! He is willing to do whatever is asked of him and enjoys being out on the trail.This guy hasn’t hesitated to cross creeks, downed timber, bog and whatever obstacles appear in his path, and will stick with you until the day is done. He has the work ethic and responsiveness to gather big mountain pastures and chase cows through the brush, but maintains a gentle nature wherever you want to take him. Eli doesn’t need to be on a ranch to stay happy and is also content to go for evening trail rides or swim bareback in the ponds. He is good with riding away from the group and not bothered by having dogs around him! Eli is also a nice arena horse with an easy lope, low headset on a loose rein, and takes cues from your seat and leg. He carries a nice circle, responds softly to the bit and gaits that are easy to sit bareback. He carries a flag with ease, ropes and drags a sled or a barrel without batting an eye, and is accustomed to a variety of obstacles on the ground and on his back. Versatile, gentle and willing, Eli is a nice gelding that we enjoy! We’d be glad to answer questions or tell you more about him on the phone at 307-298-5030 or by email at horses(at)wyodiamond.com.
