United States of America
when I arrived:
Eternal Wheels (aka Dixie) was given to me by the boarding facility where I work. They had purchased her for use as a lesson horse but she was found to have leg injuries that limit her to walk/trot.
Dixie is a sweet, gentle 15hh bay Quarter horse mare who responds best to a patient but firm hand. Good in the field with other horses! Stands for bathing/ grooming. Very willing but not suitable for a beginner.
Must wear support boots on her hind legs when under saddle. Shots/coggins/farrier are current. Diet supplemented with glucosamine and bute due to stiffness and discomfort in hind legs.
Dixie loves treats, especially peppermints! She is a great trail horse although will spook on occasion, especially if riding alone. She is more calm in groups.
Dixie is resistant to having her feet lifted but is getting better as I work with her. She also gets nervous in cross-ties. (Makes me wonder what she endured before being purchased by us.)
