Dixie is a really great mare. We have rode her a few times and she has done great. She would be a good barrel horse or pole bending, even trail horse. She just needs someone who can ride her and work with her and we don't have the time. She is 2 years old and 12 year old girls have been riding her. She is a very great learner and with some riding she will make a great anything horse! She's not afraid of cars or other animals. And she is good in the pasture with our other horses. She is a really good horse!
