“Marley” – (Marley Apache Pride) TWHBEA
# 20303564. POSSIBLY FOR SALE, check with us. Foaled 5/23/03 This beautiful
sorrel gelding with a white blaze and long main and tail is the first colt
foaled on our place. On 04-07-07 he is 14.3 hands high and weighs around 900
lbs. He was imprinted at birth, given lots of attention, and it shows. He
is a real lover. You can walk up to him anywhere, and he loves attention.
He will come to you to get it.
He was given a permanent “attitude adjustment” (gelded) in the summer of 2004. He has a quiet and gentle temperament, and is the kind of horse anyone can use with confidence. His mother, “Goldy” has such a quiet disposition and a great gait. He has been ridden and packed in the wilderness on many trips, and ridden in a variety of circumstances by riders of all ages and skill levels in an open meadow and on trails. He is nearly “bomb proof.” He is not spooky or timid or jumpy.
He was mostly trained with “Natural Horsemanship” techniques advanced by Pat Parelli. Once he is exposed to new things, they become no big deal. I can ride up to an electric fence, open it, ride through, and close it without ever dismounting. I have ridden him with saddle or bareback, in either event just with a light rope halter.
