Get to Know He’s a King Kite

He’s a King Kite aka LB is a seasoned ranch horse who has many miles to offer! . His “been there, done that” outlook on life make him the perfect addition to a busy ranch or trail riding life. From quick moving barn cats to loud heavy equipment to moving vehicles, this handsome man is super solid both on the ground and under saddle. While LB enjoys being groomed and scratched, he goes straight to work when he has a job to do. This boy has some fancy buttons! Having extremely smooth gaits (w/t/c), collecting and moving out well make him a dream to ride!

He would be a great match for: a child who has some miles in the saddle and is ready to continue their training or for someone that occasionally just wants to hop on and ride through the pasture or trails. Heck, he would be great teaching children ranch working as well! LB is a registered APHA gelding and has PtHA papers pending. All available Nexus horses are up-to-date on: coggins, vaccines, dental and farrier work, worming and are microchipped.
