Nieto is an off track thoroughbred who is currently being used for confident and athletic novice riders in our horsemanship lessons and trail rides. While we believe Nieto is going to make a great, gentle beginner horse, currently he is not being used for this purpose.
As a previous 20k winner, we know he has the speed. That doesn’t mean this fellow is going to try and take off with you! He’s a great prospect for hunter or play day.
We have used Nieto for Walk/trot/canter rides with experienced riders. Currently used at the walk and light trot only for Novice riders. Very willing fellow who will pony somewhat begrudginlgy (he’s getting there!) and opens/closes gates.
If you would like to schedule to see Nieto, one of our horse trainers will show you what he can do. You can watch him being used on trail or in our horseback riding lesson program by a novice or low-intermediate rider. If you would like to try Nieto out for yourself, schedule a ride at 20% off. If you chose to purchase this fine Thoroughbred, we will deduct the cost of your ride from his rate.
