This is our first American Saddlebred that we’ve owned, and feel so fortunate to call him ours. We purchased Buccaneer as a 2 yr old from Far Field Farm in California; it’s been an awesome journey since that moment of loading him in the trailer and taking the long drive home. We started him using horsemanship techniques, including roping his feet, hobble training, using a flag, and a variety of obstacles to build his confidence. Buccaneer is a versatile, talented, responsive gelding that has a giant personality! He loves to touch you, your hair, his saddle, anything he can get his lips on. Buccaneer is well-traveled; having journeyed to California on several occasions and was the ‘Colt Starting Green Horse’ for Light Hands Horsemanship in May 2011 with Jon Ensign. He’s very willing to try new things, has competed in Cowboy Dressage and ACTHA events. Buccaneer also enjoys hitting the trails, locally or the long trek to Montana. Lately we’ve introduced Buccaneer to cattle work, it’s built his confidence and he’s shown that he’s quite handy. Buccaneer can be ridden in the snaffle or the hackamore (bosal) and will continue his training with hunt seat and jumping next on our list.
