Classey Effort N616805- Born May 2002 - 12 year old, a fancy red dun appaloosa mare with zippers on her legs (zebra stripes). She is out of A For Effort. Born in Tennessee. Registered with the Appaloosa Horse Club.
If you know anything about the A For Effort babies, they are kicking but in the Appy Circuit.
I finished her, then she had two years off (I had a baby). She's now running again and hasn't missed a beat! She lives to run. She's faster than her half sister (that we also own) who placed at the World's show in Texas. She hasn't been to world's only b/c I can't afford it. She has qualified to go in the past.
Her favorite is barrels and poles. Decent at figure 8. Getting better at keyhole. I've had her out team penning, and she does well there too. Safe on trails, she enjoys them.
She is the calmest and sweetest horse you'll ever know. Beginners/Intermediates are safe on her when not in the show ring. In show ring (racing) she needs an experienced rider to handle some hottness.
**horse update: Due to my pregnancy I, personally, will not be showing her this year. BUT she is not just standing in the pasture. My good friend was riding her and keeping her in shape. My friend is a beginner rider. She has gone on trail rides but has done no work or lessons in the arena. This should speak to Classy Effort's nature, experience and ability to work with a variety of levels of riders. Currently, she is being leased by a 12 year old running NBHA and other gaming shows. They understand that if someone wishes to buy her that the lease is null and void immediately.
DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS FANTASTIC MARE!!
The below videos are of my cousin, who trains horses. This is the first time she road Classy Effort, and she's still feeling out all her buttons. So they aren't her best runs, but they are pretty decent. (Barrels video is named wrong in youtube title)

My friend is riding in these two videos. Her first riding lesson was April 15th, 2013, these two videos were taken May 20th. She isn't running anywhere close to full speed, but shows her capabilities.
Videos are labeled poles, but she is running the figure 8 pattern.
