COME ON DOWN FOR A RIDE!
There's 11 Videos out here of her since 1st week of riding!
I've ridden her 3 times over this last couple of weeks and she's a BREEZE! Naturally SMOOTH!
I'm 55yrs old, out of shape after having most of year out of saddle, certainly am no expert rider or Trainer...Intermediate at best as I've never competed. Just lots of Mountain Woods/Creeks/Rivers/Camping and ENJOYING MFT's.
This 9/10/14 video is just a keep her in shape workout. I'm not Collecting her up very tight because I want her to Relax into Gait and MOVE NATURALLY - which is SMOOTH & less tiring.
She's fine around kids/dogs, but Recommend Confident Rider because she's built to cover real MILEAGE.
She LOVES THE TRAIL and goes at it with willingness. She will lolly gag along half asleep if thats what you want of her...not overly high energy, but she can sure Reach if you ask it of her and is still Naturally Smooth.
Show Prospect: Karla's video shows how she can TICK out a Collected Foxtrot & bang out the Floppy Ear like a hound-dog on a hot trail if that's what you want (see Video catalog below).
She's got a good Strong Healthy frame that is 15.2-3 depending on your approach. Has the frame for Mountains or MILES or Versatility type things.
Some Playday beginner training such as pole bending & ain't afraid to Jump (another video).
She has like 3 colors in her tail, and Great Deal of Gold Fleck in her coat so she shines like a new Copper Penny. And a load of Flaxen blended into her mane, a white streak at base of mane. She looks like she belongs in a Western.
Here's a LIST of Video Links w/Trainers on her starting with her 1st Season:

SIRE: CRASH E. is For Sale and Standing at Summerville, SC too. He wintered with Grand Champion Trainer Mike Rutledge! Talk about amazing - but Surprise is actually bigger than him and every bit as smooth, definitely lighter feel.
I've NEVER had this much TRAINER TIME ON ONE FOR THIS LOW PRICE! BECAUSE WE SOLD THE RANCH AND STILL HAD HORSES I PUT THEM IN TRAINER BOARDING. Fact is, I've sold MANY for $3K that weren't as fine a horse as this with only 30-60days on them. In any other situation I'd have $4K on her right now and wouldn't budge. Leave me riding her through this Fall and she will be just that cause I've got more time than ever to enjoy the last 2 I own. ;p
I'm done talking BRING YOUR TRAILER & CASH!
