Return to Previous Page
 SOLD! 

 14.3 hands 

As cowboy lookin’ as they come and stamped with dun factor galore! Gringo has the black face, tiger striped legs up to his belly,  a thick dorsal stripe and bulldog-style conformation measuring just as wide as he is tall. Gringo is the last colt we raised out of our stud, Lil Ruf Catalyst, 6 time AQHA World Champion. We have done a little bit of everything on Gringo. He’s very adaptive, quick to learn, and eager to please. He will perform all the reining/cowhorse maneuvers with an easy lead change, solid spins, and a stylish sliding stop. He’s a pretty mover with a naturally low head set. He has a rocking chair lope with pretty circles, a nice ground covering long trot across the pasture and a super smooth jog that you can sit all day long. Gringo has been used for all types of cow work. He’s been cut on, boxed on and down the fence. He’s loaded with natural cow and has a pretty working style. He’s quiet and easy going and will not shake up a herd. Gringo has been roped on in the pasture, steer stopped out of the box and roped the sled. He has great rate and timing which lets you focus on roping. He is very smooth and comfortable to ride. We have ridden Gringo a million outside miles, all over our north Texas ranch as well as throughout the Arizona desert. He is an absolute dream to ride outside and willingly goes right where you point him through rocky and rough mountain terrain, running river water, knee deep mud, tall brush and prickly cactus. He side passes to open and shut all the gates, smoothly goes over the logs and bridges, and will drag whatever you dally to the saddle horn. Gringo is very easy to handle on the ground and is always gentle. He is the same horse every time you saddle him with zero silly business. He is good with noisy traffic, loud gunfire, blowing tarps, crazy dogs, and wildlife. Gringo has all the talent and ability to go horse show in the Ranch Versatility, Ranch Riding and Cowhorse events. He would be a phenomenal ranch horse that is fancy enough for the boss man to ride or he  would be just as happy being your partner for the recreational trail rides or avid cross country competitions. Gringo’s  distinctive and “ranchy” look has a presence that turns heads everywhere we take him.  This is an outstanding young gelding that can easily go any direction!
