Gunners New Chex
NOTES: Here’s Chex, one of the most versatile and mature geldings we’ve ever owned. This gelding is definitely a “total package” horse, 6 years old, 15 hands, plenty of bone, size, substance, and lots of common sense. Chex is bred and trained for reining, but his experience goes far beyond the reining pen. He rides confidently down the trail and tackles any obstacle like an old pro. He has worked cattle and started roping out of the box. While he’s mostly done the heel side so far, Chex is the right size to do both ends. Stays quiet in the box and is ready to go right on with roping training. Chex has a true one-hand handle and is easy for anyone to operate. He has carried multiple riders with a wide range of experience and get along with everyone. He is super willing and always looking forward to the next job. With an all-around gelding like Chex, you could do reining, ranch riding, ranch versatility, roping, trail riding and more. Chex sell 100% sound with no problems. We think this gelding will make someone a favorite go to horse. Feel free to contact Yoder family with any questions. 417-432-1088.
