Bremervale Destiny granddaughter for sale
17yo Arabian mare
Taj is a fantastic little mare with lots of heart. She was a pasture pet until she was 11, at which time I purchased her and began her training. She went under saddle very well. I then sold her to Linda Snow, who continued her training as a trail horse. During the 3 years that Linda rode her, Taj traveled extensively, tackling very rugged terrain, spending nights on high lines or tied to a trailer on some occasions. After 3 years, Linda realized she needed a gaited horse for physical reasons, and Taj came back to Bridlewood.
Taj's ground manners are excellent! She ties, loads, bathes, stands quietly for the vet and farrier. She has no vices and attaches herself to "her" person completely, willingly leaving the herd to crawl in their pocket. She has never been shod or needed boots. She is UTD on all worming and vet care. Due to her heavy percentage of Egyptian Arabian bloodlines, Taj has low caloric requirements and does not do well on lush pasture or too much hay. She has a good health record with no colic, laminitis or founder, and is not Cushings or IR.
Over the last year, Taj has been used by our experienced youth riders for trail rides and combined training schooling shows. Though not experienced with the show environment, she handled everything well, with no spookiness or silliness. She just went out, did her job, and came home with a blue, a red, and Reserve Champion. She likes to ride hard on the trail and does better with a rider that really likes to cover ground - and no, I don't mean run everywhere, I just mean go out and do STUFF. The more difficult her terrain or pace, the more she shines. You can see in her pics, she rides bitless or with a snaffle. She rides well on a loose rein but likes light contact at the canter or gallop.
Taj needs an experienced, intermediate rider with light hands and a confident seat. She is completely natural horsemanship trained, and has most of the lvl 2 Parelli ground tasks conquered. If I ever rode a horse through the Rockies (and yes, I've been there, hiked them), she would be my pick. She's sure-footed, sensible, and thinks she's part mountain goat. She tackles hills very well and will cross any obstacle, even if she has to swim it. Taj is not an alpha mare and always seeks out a calm, strong mare in the herd to ally herself with; she needs the same from her person. Having been trained strictly by the tenants of NH, she expects quiet leadership from her riders, and so does best with riders who understand that concept. She does not do well with timid or "busy" riders; they make her anxious and unsure.
Taj needs a person! My time is full with my two main riding horses, and my daughter with hers. We love this little mare and think it's just a shame to let her sit in the pasture and grow old. She would make a great pony club or youth CT horse. She would also do very well at LD endurance or NATRC. Though she's a good, solid horse, she doesn't have the mindset to be a good horse for novices, but her rider doesn't necessarily need to be polished. She can carry an adult rider with no problem - don't let her small size fool you. We have papers on her, as well.
If you are interested in Taj or have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I am willing to do a 30 or 60-day trial as long as she stays at my facility.
$1800 but willing to negotiate for a really good match.
