"Captain" is a 15 year old grade bay roan. He is a solid and big 16.0+ hands, big boned, stout, and sound. We bought Captain as a head horse for my husband who was a novice/3 header. Captain is great with walking in the box and backing in quiet; but, when the steer hits the chute, he covers the ground fast and is hard to the horn. He is most suitable for a 6 header and higher. We also have found out that Captain was a finished hazing horse and has run 300+ steers in his lifetime. He could easily go back to that job.

Since my husband didnít get along with him and we didnít want him just sitting, Iíve been riding him for the last few months (since early October) and running barrels. In less than 2 months, he won me 7th in the 4D average at the Easter Camarillo Classic. Lately, he has been running in bottom of the 2D/top of the 3D at some small local indoor shows. He is fast with a huge stride...but so smooth to ride. I definitely think he has the ability to be a solid 2D, if not even 1D, horse. We didnít buy him for me though and I have my own project horse this one has to go. Iím currently still running him and riding him regularly. He is legged up and ready to go on with whatever you want to do with him.

He is good on trail rides, crosses water, good with farrier, good on trailer, and generally a great horse overall. He could even be a good rodeo pick-up horse, ranch horse, or the like. We did make a "flag" out of old t-shirts and an old stick to see if he would have issues carrying something like that. He didnít care - and let me carry it, drag it over his head, etc.

Priced at $6500 OBO. Come try him and you will fall in love with the rocking horse lope...and be amazed at how quickly he covers the ground :) Please text me at 8155196583 or email me at Thank you!
