Get to Know Rocky

Rocky is a 15-year-old Paso Fino gelding who stands 13.3 hand tall. He loves trail riding and camping in the great outdoors. He is super healthy. He loads in the trailer like a champ and leads like a dream. He will be getting his riding evaluation once he settles in at Wild at Heart Horse Rescue, but he’s really friendly to both his handlers and his new neighbors no matter how nosey they are. He will be ideal for a confident horse person that is looking for a hiking partner.
