Gorgeous, smooth, sweet mountain horse mare
Rosie (aka Chris Cross) is a 7 year old black mare with two white socks and a white blaze & snip, with a long, long mane and tail. She has a beautiful, refined head and looks like a fairy princess. She is a registered KY mountain horse and is eligible to be registered Rocky Mtn as well - I have her papers. She is from Classic Farm in Georgetown KY, and her sire is Black Bart (out of Choco Dock), her dam is Mountain Aries, out of Nuncio. Excellent bloodlines. She is a registered Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse and is also eligible for the Rocky Mountain Horse registry.
She will dogwalk or gait beautifully on a loose rein if you'd like, or you can collect her up for more animation. She knows most of the Clinton Anderson fundamentals, groundwork and under saddle. She is extremely smooth in her best gaits.
She has turned out to be a champ on the trails; she is happy to lead or follow politely and is very willing and good minded about the scary forest boogeymen. My daughter took her out once on her own recently to see how she would do (I'm too chicken to take any horse out alone on a trail), and she did great. We are working on teaching her how to overcome the more difficult obstacles, like going down steep embankments, and she is doing great.
She is sensitive to seat, leg and reins, so I wouldn't say she is for a true beginner - she deserves someone with calm, gentle hands.
She is 15 hands, with a more slender build, but very strong. She is a pretty easy keeper (she is on 24 hour turnout with a minimal amount of grain). She has been barefoot since last summer.
She will stand still for grooming, is good about having her feet done, loves to be bathed on a hot day, stands stock still for saddling and mounting. She will back up, will stop on your breath/seat, knows one-rein stops, etc. Good for the farrier, vet, have taught her to self-load onto our trailer - not perfect, but pretty good!
Why am I selling her? My husband has decided that he wants to learn how to ride so he can go on trails with me, but he is 6' and 220# and just looks silly on her. He is also too much of a beginner for her, so I want to get him a more suitable horse (big and barely moves). I am boarding her in Trotwood and already have another horse that we thought was going to be permanently lame (which is why I bought Chris Cross last summer), but my gelding made a miraculous recovery, and I just don't have time to ride both, and I don't have the $ to board a third horse, so we have to sacrifice her.
She would be gorgeous in the show ring as well - she was advertised for trail or show. A couple of her videos from Classic Farm are shown below.
I am willing to consider reasonable offers. Call or text, or email. I can respond most quickly to text or email.
