From an ugly duckling to beautiful swan!!This beautiful Fox Trotter bay mare was purchased from a previous bad situation (no MFTHBA registration papers but can be registered with the Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry). Jewel was starved, and had defensive manners through no fault of her own, but after a tailored course in behavioral rehab, she showed that she was indeed a very sweet mare with a big heart and an awesome personality. Jewel is visually stunning and obviously well bred. She is well-built, big boned, sure footed, and is totally sound. An easy keeper, no health issues, goes barefoot, and absolutely no vices. Excellent stall manners.
She has what we call “all business and listening ears” and learns very fast. Has natural horsemanship training and free lunges. Lateral and vertical flexion, backs up freely, side passes, works gates, neck reins, leg yields, turns on the haunches and forehand, and is free jumping 2’ 6” with ease and no hesitation whatsoever. Will go Western or English. Jewel is learning basic dressage and is currently being ridden in a snaffle bit. She stands quietly while being mounted (will side pass to your mounting block or fence), has nice forward balanced energy, and she has a distinct flat foot walk and fox trot, canters, and does not pace. Jewel also has a floating trot and a smooth flowing canter. She can walk on a loose rein. Jewel is pure joy to ride and has the Missouri Fox Trotter Go with lots of stamina! You don’t need spurs with this girl, just a thought and a squeeze!!
Jewel has been trail ridden, loves the water, and would make a great overnight camper.
Trailers quietly, point and load, no problem with back slot of slant load, will back out with a cluck. Will stand quietly tied all day long and is good for farrier. Jewel has been hobbled and is electric fence wise. Has had a foal(s). Gets along with other horses and is not marish, and good around dogs.
If you want to get excited about putting a saddle on a horse and go for an all-day enjoyable ride, you’ll love miss Jewel. She makes riding fun and is a pure joy to be around. She tries hard to please and on occasion will be thinking about your next move. Jewel will be an amazing beautiful partner in any discipline that you choose, especially endurance riding. This gal would do best with an EXPERIENCED and KNOWLEDGEABLE rider. Jewel has shown that she appreciates a good thoughtful teacher/leader, and will make a wonderful loving forever horse. This fantastic mare deserves the best!! Video will be available at Equitechsporthorses on YT.
