Love the Spanish Flare, the Baroque Physique with a Smart Mind?! This young lady is for you! "Flor de la Cereza" (spanish for Wild Cherry) is a 7 y/o PURE PERUVIAN! This mare is very naturally smooth gaited and has a lovely canter as well! She has a beautiful head, well set neck, great shoulders/hips, compact back, strong legs!
We are seeking a very special person who wants a very special bond with a very special horse and know that many hearts may get broken until we find the perfect match! This mare was bred, raised, loved and owned by 1 lady. Her owner is a member of our military and has been deployed for quite some time and may still be overseas for some time more. She has entrusted us to take care of her baby until we find just the right forever home - that is the only reason this mare is seeking somewhere new!
This lovely young mare has an unlimited future ahead of her! She was trained under saddle but has had quite some time "off" and needs someone to start fresh with her (but the hard work has all been done). With the time she has spent "turned out" she is a bit jumpy/nervous/tense with new situations - all she needs is someone who can dedicate time to her, give her a routine and structure and if you can do that with patience and a quiet way of handling her with just some time you will have a phenomenal horse! She does load, lead and comes to you to be caught. She is nervous about vaccines and the farrier but is doing well. She needs someone to teach her that things like fly spray, blankets and bathing aren't going to hurt her etc. She just gets uptight in these type situations and needs someone to help her work through them.
Please understand that mare is not mean, she is not agreessive but she is young and fairly high strung. With time and structure she will calm and settle more. Due to these facts SHE IS NOT FOR A BEGINNER/AMATUER!
You MUST MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS to be considered as her new partner:
*You must live withing 350 miles of zip code 24363
*You must be over 21 years to inquire
*You must be under 6' tall and under 200# (she is compact but a small mare)
*You must have experience with Paso Fino's!
We look forward to helping find her a forever match!
