GEM is the most entertaining member of our retirement family!
He is a fancy 24-year old 15hh black gaited Tennessee Walking Horse gelding with beautiful auburn highlights in his mane and tail. GEM has a lot of personality!
GEM is actually an acronym for Gift’s Ebony Masterpiece, his registered name. Before becoming an English lesson horse, he was a driving horse and also a Western trail horse. As an English lesson horse, he worked most recently in the lower levels.
GEM is currently available as a companion horse that can be lightly ridden walk/trot by a small rider. This sweet guy is extremely friendly with both people and horses. He is inquisitive and affectionate, and he seeks out human attention. GEM would love to be your best buddy or a best friend to your horse.
Could this sweet, friendly guy be just the horse you’ve been looking for?
