Jynx is a young (approx. 7-year-old) gaited gelding. We don’t know for sure what breed he is, just that he is super smooth! He is broke to ride. Jynx is a great size for a smaller rider. He stands well for saddling and knows his basic groundwork like lunging, backing, and yielding, picks up his feet, and stands tied. Under saddle he will walk, trot, and canter, and has not offered to buck or rear.

We are looking for an intermediate rider or better for Jynx because he is still somewhat green and could benefit from some regular riding and personal attention. He rode well in the small arena. In the large pasture he was more forward and a bit nervous. For example, he would occasionally turn and try to go back near the gate. We worked on some gate exercises and within 10-15 minutes he was already starting to get over that. He just needs refining, and someone who is comfortable building his confidence. He is very sensitive to his handler. If you are timid or nervous, he will pick up on that and it will make him feel defensive. If you are calm and confident and don’t sneak around him, he will relax quickly. In particular, he can be quite sensitive around his head. He needs someone who can continue practicing approach and retreat type exercises and reinforcing his groundwork. In the past, he has been handled by kids, but at this time we feel he needs someone who will build his confidence and can act as a leader for him.
