Moose: 11 year old Percheron/TB gelding. Approx. 17 HH, 1500lb, wears a #4 shoe, we have used Moose as a pick up horse at rodeos in the bares, broncs and bulls. We've hooked him to a sleigh and wagon to feed cows and horses during the winter and hooked him 4 abreast in the spring to harrow meadows. He has been packed and led a pack horse to run a trap line during the seasons. He has been ridden in steep, rough, rocky country and crossed water and ridden through bogs. Ridden mostly as a ranch horse and hooked to a wagon, he can be ridden in different bridles (snaffles, billy allen, bridle bits). Used on the ranch to wrangle horses, brand and doctor cattle (good to tie off on), and has been used to pull a stuck pick up out of the mud. Can be turned out and laid off for long periods of time. Great to rope on fast or slow. Cowy, nice stop, and a ground covering smooth gait.

Moving Into The Two-Rein

I've fallen a little behind getting my gelding moved into the two-rein so I can show him. But where he is so hobble broke I can hobble him, where I can keep a close eye on him, and let him sit there wearing a bridle bit getting used to how it feels and weighs while I work on whatever else needs done at the moment. We have had so much luck doing this on our horses that are getting moved into the two-rein at first.

The Joys Of Having A Hobble Broke Horse



 

Having a good hobble broke horse is one of the best 'buttons' you can have on them. You don't have to worry about finding a place to tie them up or tying them up with your bridle reins or mecate. A good horse will stay right where you 'parked' him and never budge an inch.
