Description:  Trip has decided he doesn’t enjoy arena work and is much happier on trail, where he shines.  Trip loves going out and exploring the world and is a very gentle and patient trail horse, fit even for a beginner.

Update December 2016:  Tripitaka (GB) has been adopted and has already been rechristened as “Seamus.”  Here he is shown on a rainy day for one last trail ride at Bear Creek Stables with his gal pal, Jasmine.  Seamus loves nothing better than getting out and about and will be doing plenty of that in his new life as the beloved pet of a Sacramento area family and their four daughters.  They plan on some arena work and a lot of trail riding.  Seamus is going to be a surprise Christmas present for the girls and the family will document the day for us.  Can’t wait to show the smiling faces!!  Seamus enjoyed his time at Bear Creek Stables and quickly became a barn favorite.  He’s a beautiful old soul that is getting the life he truly deserves.
