16.3 hands. Nacho is a race winner of $398,406. A true hardworking warhorse. He last raced in December 2011. We were not told of any injuries.
Nacho is a big bodied gelding that turns out well with others. He has spent the last several years on 24/7 turnout and has done very well. When Nacho first arrived, he was nervous when separated from his friends, however, in the last few days he has gained self confidence and is calm when under tack. With more time and patience, he should work through this completely. Nacho needs to relearn his manners as he was not handled very much in his time off. He does walk well on a lead rope. He is calm in the stall and stood fairly well for the vet and farrier. He loves to be groomed and will stand ground tied for a good mane pull. Nacho is very kind and does enjoy being with people
Nacho enjoys being with his friends in the field and settles down to graze quickly. He adjusted well to being in the stall at night. He shows no vices in or out of the stall.
Nacho will need a patient, soft handed, experienced trainer to help him through his transition. Even better, if you can work with him daily to help him along quicker. He did listen well under tack and was not spooky to anything. He will be best suited for trails, but, with proper training, you could explore more sporty options for him. He would probably do best in a home with other horses.
His world has changed greatly in the past few days and he is taking it like a champ.
