FOR SALE $500
"Ellie" was a trade-in and was supposed to be well broke to ride. However, our evaluation of her under saddle has left us feeling that this mare is decidedly green and more what we consider STARTED under saddle......lightly started. She is a kind little mare that comes to us in the pasture, stands in the cross ties, tacks up nicely, and works reasonably well on the longeline. Under saddle, this mare is easy enough to get along with but she definitely rides like a baby. She mouths the bit quite a lot and lacks the "power steering" typically seen on a more experienced horse. She walks along nicely enough, will trot but breaks gait quite a bit, has a good whoa, and does have a good back up. That is pretty much it. We typically take trade in horses like this mare to auction when we go but this little girl is sweet and easy enough to get along with that we figured we would offer her to the public before our next trip out.
If you watch this mare at liberty, she does seem to have a gaited quality to her movement and she does have conformation that lends itself to the theory that this mare likely has some type of gaited breeding behind her.
If you are looking for a cute and rather flashy winter project, consider looking at Ellie.
