Buck is a very confident and handsome 12-year-old recent gelding. Soon after his arrival to the MSSPA, the kind folks at HWH treated him for ulcers, began a calming supplement, and introduced bodywork (massage) while slowly beginning work in the round pen and arena. HWH started showing him how to use his body more correctly, with emphasis on a nice bend and softening through the topline and has consistently done groundwork, lunging, and round pen work with Buck. He has been great to saddle (both English and Western), never bucking or negatively reacting, and the quality of his gait has greatly improved.

Buck has now found his right home where he will be working as a lead trail horse and exploring the National Forest near Mt. Washington. We wish him and his new owner happy trails for his new life!
