This is a beautiful, 4yr old mare. She is currently 16hh. She has a sweet, very calm personality. She loves being with her person and being groomed/pampered/loved on. When encountering new things, she will stop and look. She clips, loads, stands quietly. She has extensive ground work and has 21+ ride under her. She has a very natural uphill collection. She will do well in dressage. She has a balanced walk/trot. She would do best with a lady rider looking for a safe, dream horse to love, ride and pamper. Even though she is green, with light hands and gentle guidance she will be a fabulous riding horse. She is so easy going, even at turn out time, she'd rather trot to her favorite rolling spot and then graze while the other horses run around. Her sire is Friesian/Appaloosa and her Dam is Friesian/Morgan. This makes her 50% Friesian, 25% appaloosa and 25% Morgan. To top it off, she is one of a handful of grulla (black dun) freisian crosses and also carries the Lp gene. She has a thick mane/tail and light feathering. She is ready to go foreword with training. Her vaccines are current. She is also registered with the Friesian Heritage Horse registry. She has a very natural uphill collection. I was asking $6500, but I need to sell her ASAP so I've dropped her price to $4500 OBO to good home only. Please contact me.
Is your mare still available?
I wasn't sure when this was posted and what work may have been done with her since!

Aishling is still for sale at this point. She has not been worked with since January. She's for sale for several reasons 1. All my other horses are gaited and that's what I prefer. 2. She loves being wither her person and with 4 other horses, she doesn't get the time she wants 3. I took a job in Minnesota. Aishling and the rest of my family are still in Arizona until we sell the house. I would prefer not to pay to move her to MN.
As for additional work, she was ridden 3-5 times a week November/December and then I moved to MN. I visited for a weekend 2 weeks ago and she was great in the round pen and picked up where we left off in the arena under saddle (walk/trot). She is not a typical warmblood in that you have to direct her energy. She's very much a draft horse, in that you have to build her energy and then direct it. This is great because she is very reliable and not spooky.
Is she broke to ride english?
Yes. I started her in a plantation saddle because it was more comfortable for me and a good lesson for her (If she could handle the bulky, heavy saddle, the English one would be a breeze). After the first week of learning walk, stop, back, left, right and bend; we switched to the saddle that's pictured. She is a GREAT english riding horse.
