Pierre is a unique little guy. He was raised on the bayou of South Louisiana. He will walk, trot and lope the very best. He has a great stop too. Pierre has been ridden in the arena and many miles outside of the arena He has penned cattle in some of the toughest terrain know to man kind. Not recommended for a beginner because he can get fresh if left up and he is too handy for the average little kid. UTD on everything. Sound.
