PERFORMANCE RECORD: Earner of $855. In 2013: BFA World Barrel Racing Open 4D class winner.
NOTES: “Buff” is near and dear to my heart. He is a finished barrel horse that will go any speed asked. We sold Buff 4 years ago to a high school rodeo family and we got the chance to buy him back earlier last fall. We jumped on the opportunity, I love this horse! Buff typically runs in the 2D and on occasion will slip in the 1D with an aggressive rider, he is very push style which makes him great for a young or novice rider! He is not going to go any faster than you ask him to, he’s sure footed, not spooky or flighty, will walk in and out of the arena, SAFE, and is just simply easy to get along with. Buff is the most laid back horse I think I have ever been around, stands tied like a soldier, hauls perfect, quiet in his stall, great to shoe, clip, bathe, and rides the same no matter how long he sits idle. He also knows the poles, trail rides great, ponied colts, and is broke enough to do about anything on horseback. This is the type of horse that doesn’t come up for sale very often, go make your run then throw the kids on to do the peewee classes. He is by the deceased legend Bully Bullion out of a daughter of Mr Eye Opener, doesn’t get much better than that!! Come ride him to really appreciate him. Sound, current on deworming, shoes, and coggins. FMI call Riley 507-459-8654. 15.3HH
