In our experience, Mr. Gunsmoke horses have a tendency to be calm, friendly and very well natured. However, when asked to perform - wether it be in the show pen, in training or being used on the ranch - they "turn it on" so to speak. They go into working mode and a power comes over them to perform with peak agility, fluidity and talent; but when the reins are dropped and the work is done, they go back to that laid-back well natured horse you love to have around.
This type of temperament is ideal for that of a working horse - that has to perform many duties on the ranch.
