NOTES: “Hale” is the ultimate all-around, versatile, go-to, been there-done that type of gelding as they make. His resume is quite profound, finished on both the head and heel side, breakaway, trail and ranch, and had been cut on as well. Hale had been hauled in the breakaway by the previous owners and used at pro rodeos. He’s the same every time you ride him whether you ride him every day or four times a year, and doesn’t need to spend all week in the practice pen to go rope on the weekend. Hale has a lot of style to him, can leave hard and flat, big move in the corner, snappy face, and is a hiney dragger in the breakaway and on the heel side. He’s fun for a high number roper to go win on but laid back and easy enough for the low numbers as well. Built like a sturdy ranch gelding and rides like his pedigree, this is an outstanding horse that we’re proud to have had the privilege to own. Stands 15hh.
