Bandit is a 2004 Buckskin Arab/Morgan mare. She is registered Half Arabian. She is 15.0hh. Bandit has been used as a trail horse. She has been on overnight camping trips and on many trail rides. She is used to cattle, tractors, dogs, etc.. She has also been shown in halter at a couple of open shows when she was younger. Bandit would also make a great broodmare. She is out of a Tamerlan daughter. She is friendly and easy to catch.
I'm a heavy rider looking for a solid trail horse for overnight camping. I currently have Arabs so am used to the sensitivity. Do you think with the foundering that she'd still be okay for long trail rides with a heavier rider? Does she need any special shoeing? Other than keeping off grass and watching her weight, does she have any other special dietary needs? I have a foundered pony but not any full sized horses that foundered. Also, how is she in the herd--what's her rank? Is she aggressive or mellow?
Bandit should be fine for a heavier rider. She is a sturdy horse and has been overnight camping trips before. She doesn't require shoes and she doesn't have any other dietary needs. Bandit is towards the middle to top of the herd. She gets along well with other horses.
I was wondering if she could show western and does she do hunt to?
Bandit is just a trail horse. We ride her in a western saddle with a snaffle bit. She has never been ridden English. She was only shown when she was younger in halter at a couple open show.
I am interested in learning more about her. Does she have speed/ want to go when riding her? Or is she the more calm, lazy type? Also what level rider would she require?
Bandit is a great horse to ride. She would be best suited for an intermediate rider, because she is an alert horse and not a dead head. She would never take off, rear, or buck; the only thing she does is stop an look at the thing she is afraid of for a couple seconds and then she moves on just fine. She is a really fun horse to ride. She has been used as a trail horse for the past five years. We've rode her on trails behind our house and we have taken her on overnight camping trips to Forestville State Park. We have never taken her out by herself, but I'm sure she would do fine. The only reason we are selling her is, because my daughter shows horses so we don't have as much time to trail ride anymore. The reason for her low price is she foundered last spring. She made a full recovery, but she should be kept off grass. If you have anymore questions let me know.
Thanks for your interest,
Please tell me more about her. Any soundness issues or health problems? Has she ever had a foal that you know of? how long have you owned her, and what did the previous owners use her for? Thank you.
Bandit is a great horse and the only reason for the low price is that she grass foundered last year. She made a full recovery, but should be kept off grass. We raised her and she has never had a foal, but with her great bloodlines I'm sure she would be a wonderful broodmare. Bandit has been used as my wife's and my trail horse for the past five years. We have rode her on the trails behind our house and on overnight camping trips in Forestville State Park. She trailers well and gets along well with other horses. Bandit is a strong horse that can handle long trail rides. If you have anymore questions let me know.
