zSOLD - CR Turn N Jay is a nice 5 yr old Dun gelding. He has a beautiful head and good conformation. He is trained for trail riding, Rockey has ridden him all over the mountain trails and the river bottom. He walks right out and he's a good sized horse. Turn N Jay is 15-3 hands. He should go to Fall Round Up. He's old enough to ride all day and stout enough to handle it.
Rockey has 60 rides on him. 2 months of riding by Rockey is a lot different than taking a horse to a trainer that never leaves the arena. Rockey rides from 6 to 8 hours a day, (he changes horses every hour). They have been hauled to the trail head, so they trailer very well, he has put shoes on them, and he has tried to expose them to every natural obstacle that exists. They will go anywhere. They have seen everything, mountains, gulches, rocks, wildlife; deer, coyotes, run past them; ducks and geese, fly up in their face. They have crossed water, and crossed anything from a river, to a ditch, culvert, logs, rocks, bridges, Rockey opens and close gates off from them. They have been walked, trotted and loped, they back up, and they have to side-pass over to a gate, stand still until he gets the gate unfastened, side pass in the other direction to open the gate, back-up, to go around to the other side of the gate, and stand still again for him to close and fasten the gate. There are 6 gates between here and the river, so in one ride, they do this 12 times. They have been in open fields, with tall grass, brush, and sagebrush tickleing their belly. They have had to climb steep ground, and they have gone down steep ground. Rockey rides where I am afraid to follow. So like I said, they will go anywhere when he gets done with them.
