This is a great mare for a beginner barrel rider. Sam is a 23 year old registered bay Arabian. 14.1 hh. Sam has been shown at local 4H shows, equestrian team and county fair in all speed events, trail classes, western pleasure and bareback. She is a fearless trail horse who will go wherever you ask without question....thru water, over bridges and logs etc. Sam is a very willing and forgiving mare, traits that make her great for the beginner rider. She is also very quiet and will stand for tacking up, clipping, shots, vet and farrier. Loads easily into any trailer. Though she is pastured 24/7 she takes being stalled at fair with no problems. this mare does not get hot going into or coming out of the arena, she knows her job and is very patterned---just point and she will do the rest. Great with traffic, dogs, kids, goats, bikes and so on. This is not a forced sale but my daughter must sell this mare to be able to buy her next horse--she is ready to move on to a younger horse that will let her continue to compete for many more years. It is really important to us that she find a good home where she can start another young person who is interested in barrel racing or to just be somebody's trail buddy, do not let her age fool you she is a very forward mare with lots of go still. 989-615-2368, will text or email photos as I cannot get them to load on this ad. Price is OBO.
