I'm Above Average is a very fitting registered name for this handsome boy we fondly call TicTac. Seriously, cuteness overload with his gorgeous dappled gray color and precious defined head with soft, kind eyes that will touch your soul.
TicTac is beyond his years and is truly an old soul. He was born right down the road from us at renown leading Reining horse breeders, Rancho Oso Rio and #1 Reining horse trainer, Andrea Fappani. With the very best beginning and foundation, TicTac just didn't want to go quite that fast and be the superstar athlete they needed him to be. So with that being said, TicTac does all the fun Reining maneuvers and has all the fun buttons, but would rather do things on a lower scale. He has cute spins, easy changes leads, and has a smooth sliding stop. He is a gorgeous mover and is very push-style. He would excel is Ranch Riding or Ranch Versatility competition.
TicTac always saddles up gentle, even with time off. He just wants to get along and be a good boy. He is simple and easy to ride and just a fun horse to have around.
TicTac is a trail riding machine and loves to leisurely cruise around the Arizona desert. I truly believe he enjoys seeing the wildlife and taking in the beautiful scenery. He knows where his feet are and can navigate easily on the granite rock, through the prickly cactus and is sure footed through rocky and mountainous terrain. He will guide right where you send him willingly, without hesitation.
We have roped the dummy and the lead steer a ton on TicTac. He will run right up to a cow and has great rate and timing. He's handy to use all around the ranch and will side pass to open all the gates, cross bridges, drag logs, and ground ties where you drop a rein. TicTac will follow you around like a puppy dog demanding attention and will run to the gate when he sees you eager to be caught.
He is a great size standing 14.3 hands with flawless, stocky conformation. He is an own son of Lil Joe Cash, NRHA Open Futurity Champion, AQHA World Champion, earner of $289,000+ and Million Dollar sire.
TicTac knows some fun tricks and has been exposed to a little bit of anything and everything. He's a happy camper that has handled all the shenanigans we have thrown his way. He has an inquisitive and humorous personality making him fun to work with.
TicTac is cute as a button, super gentle, and will fit so many people! Check him out if you are wanting one ABOVE AVERAGE!
