Hollywood Delight
Haindpainted Delight x Hollywood's Spirit
"Hank" is a palomino tobiano gelding foaled 03/24/09. He is registered SSHBEA and stands 14.3hh. Hank's sire is Haindpainted Delight, a gorgeous palomino/white TWH stallion (see pics of him below), and his dam is Hollywood's Spirit, a sorrel/white SSH mare whose bloodlines include C.W. (Tony W.), Bedwell's Black Ace, Pride's Gold Coin and Pride's Dark Spirit.
Hank is as handsome and naturally gaited as they come. He is well mannered both under saddle and on the ground; he is easy to catch in the pasture, and stands tied, clips, bathes, loads, saddles/bridles/ stands for mounting like a gentleman. He will ride and gait in any bit, with little to no contact on the reins, and has a beautiful, smooth canter as well with an easy transition. Hank's gait is a super smooth, 4 beat racking gait and he can get up some good speed, too. He is just an all-natural saddle horse who any pleasure rider would love to ride for hours on end. No bounce here, and no special shoes or even riding style required. 
Hank has been trail ridden extensively, including at all the big trail systems like Normandy and Big South Fork, on the highway, down back roads, etc. He is generally a pleasure to work with and be around. He is not lazy and does not require a spur. His calm nature makes Hank suitable for just about anybody to ride and enjoy, including a beginner or child.
Combine his smooth natural gaits, excellent disposition, and beautiful color, and you have one awesome horse - this is what all gaited pleasure horses should be like. Add plenty of real world trail experience, and you have the total package. Don't let his age fool you. This young gelding is an awesome horse, the kind you won't see offered for sale just anywhere.
