A 14.2hh Appalachian Brumby gelding, Draco is one fancy moving guy! He needs a rider who can be confident in the saddle and tell him things are fine when he starts worrying. Just 5 years old, this handsome guy can be registered through Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue with the Pinto Horse Association for a $25 fee once he is adopted.
