16 hand black and white with one blue eyes. She is a 3rd generation I raised and showed from when I grew up in Shelbyville, TN. Registerd Spotted and Racking. Will work single or double. I imprinted her and showed her in halter then broke her out rough riding her, jumping off things and climbing banks. She has been to Crosscountry trail ride every year for 10 day spans for over 5 years. She has been to One horse gap in Illinois, Land btw the lakes, Many cedars, Buffalo river more times than I can count, Witch trail in Mississippi, Bankhead forest, and in many, many show arenas. I even showed her in halter and light shod when I was pregnant. She is so easy to catch in the pasture and an easy keeper. She gets her teeth floated yearly. She is easy on the bit and knows leg cues and flexion very well. She will ride barefoot to lightshod and be just as comfortable no matter what. She is happy to walk on a loose rein or gather up and go. The judges delight in her speed rack around the ring then I drop my reins and she somber to the lineup. She always places in the top 4. I am getting into vet school and am selling out. Her mother and grandmother have passed on and I haven't ridden her since last show season. It's just not fair to her after all these years. She has more miles than my truck. Reasonable offers accepted.

Hello, I am interested in the mare you have for sale. Would she be a good horse for someone who is getting back in the saddle after almost ten years off from serious riding? I am a bit rusty in my riding skills and I am looking for something that I can take on the trails in north and central arkansas that will not balk at the hills, creeks, and highway traffic.
Has she ever been pastured with geldings or donkeys? Do you think she would have any issue with this? I currently have a draft x gelding, a gelded jack, and a jenny, all pets who will be sharing the pasture.
How are her heat cycles? Are they even noticable or will she need some sort of mood calming suppliment?
Any additional information is appreciated.
Well, she fits all your criteria but one. She will pasture with anything. We used to raise gaited mules and still have a 30 something year old. She even shares her feed bucket! She travels excellent and has been everywhere and been in parades and shows and trail rides. She has been spayed with a marble that I did while I apprenticed at a vet clinic. All my mares are done because I don't breed anymore, so no more hear cycles. The only supplements I use is Futurity Precise mineral fed free choice. Despite all this I don't think she is good for someone coming back. She is a booger hunter when she gets bored. She will spred her feet and look at unknown things for the thrill of it. I have to spur her and she will quit. It is my sigh that she is bored and we need to gait on or do somthing fun. Because of that, I don't recommend it. I am more than willing for someone to take her and ride her all they want where ever they want. It would be good for her because I don't have the time. All I do is study anymore! I have no problem keeping her, I just feel gulty because she isn't rode and I used to keep her shoes hot, but I stopped in September. You are more than welcome to ride her all you want to try her out. I want someone to be happy.
