Miss Lakota is looking for a new home!
She is a 3 year old BLM Mustang that I gentled during my time in Montana last summer. I decided to bring her home to Ohio to continue to build a more solid foundation for her, before finding her a good home. Now that I have done that, I am looking for a good match for her!
This beautiful little lady is a cute mover, has a gorgeous thick, long mane and tail, and has a super sweet, quiet, personality. She loves attention and interaction, so she deserves a home that will be able to give her plenty of this.
She is right at 13 hands, so she will need a somewhat smaller rider, or would make an excellent liberty pony! She would be an excellent prospect for someone looking to get into showing in the International Liberty Horse Association!
She has had extensive liberty training in my program, including liberty circles, in hand work, lateral exercises, obstacles, lay down/sit up on cue, and the collection / posture training that I teach my horses, to help them make the transition to understanding how to focus and carry themselves while being ridden. This foundation will set her up for success to go in any direction from here!
I have not wanted to ride her much, due to my size in relation to hers, and wanting to help her gain more balance and strength on the ground first. Since she most trusts and understands me and the relationship we have established, I did recently decide to put the first few rides on her, and they were completely uneventful (just the way I want those first rides to go). She was relaxed and confident, and I have had a couple more (very short, again due to the size difference) rides on her since then, just to help her continue to gain more confidence, and she improves exponentially each time.
She has already traveled a good deal with me and my team, and she handles everything that comes with that very well. She loads/hauls, ties, bathes, stalls, stands for farrier, all great.
An excellent home is my top priority, and I have put a lot of work into setting her up for success in her new home, so I will be offering a free membership to my online training video library (that Lakota is a part of in her training videos, this is over a $300 value) for her new owner, to help make the transition smoother. Her new owner will also receive a free membership to the online auditing course that we filmed during her gentling process in Montana!
