Gringo is a 14.3 hand 2017 AQHA gelding. A grandson of Playgun, he is loaded with all the cow you would expect. Handy and athletic and pretty to boot. This horse could easily be finished into a reined cow horse show horse. He does large fast and small slow circles with nice transitions, changes leads, stops and has a nice turnaround started. He is a finished ranch horse, and will go work for you all day long.

He is a pleasure to be around, on the ground and in the saddle. He rides out alone or with others, and he gets along with other horses. He will do anything you ask him – point and ask him to go, and he does. He’s a willing partner for whatever task or obstacle arises. He stays broke with time off, rides around the arena or across country with a lot of look and easy movement. Really comfortable to ride, with a nice walk, trot and lope, including a very regulated top end. Gringo fancy broke neck reins and moves easily off your leg.

He crosses water, swims deep rivers, goes over logs, bridges, and anything else that arises. He is best suited for an intermediate rider, and has a lot to offer when a hand gets on him.  He’s been used for ranch work: ropes and drags or doctors cattle, gate sorts, pushes cattle in handling facilities, loads pots of cattle – he’s not afraid to have them right up underneath him and will hold his ground as they push on him. He’s also been started roping out of the box, and has been a great turnback horse in our cutting horse training operation. You can open and shut gates on him, and hang from him like a spider monkey while you do whatever ranch task arises while you’re in the saddle.  He’s been extensively around dogs, wildlife, machinery, road traffic and livestock.

While Gringo is currently dun and registered as such, he does carry the grey gene and will grey out at some point in his life.
