Yep, she'll be a lesson horse. I have been teaching lessons with horses at a different facility leasing in a per lesson basis, and have been paying more than twice what it would cost to keep a horse in horse use fees. She was used to teach lessons for several years. She has the perfect personality for it. She also actually enjoys attention, go figure, so she'll be great for my kids to groom and love on. I have 9 lessons right now, kids and adults, and more on the waiting list. I'm just taking off teaching lessons on my own, but taught working at other places. It's been about 8 months on my own now.
Thanks everyone! I'll definitely be posting more pictures. She's settling in great. When I went to pick her up this morning I found out the girl who had her since summer has done next to nothing keeping her. Didn't have the vet records for me, so I went by the vet office and found out she was due for her vacs, so I had all those done this morning. She hasn't wormed her once since she got her last summer, so I'm taking a fecal sample in on Monday to get that taken care of. She's been on pasture with occasional hay. I'm working on setting up a free choice hay slow feeder for her. Interviewing farriers. Also taking her to the tack shop to buy saddles and have a saddle fitter check fit.
Thanks waresbear, that really means a lot coming from you. Yeah, her neck is on the thick side, agreed on the throat, I think she's a little long in the back too. Her shoulder is more laid back than any other horse I looked at, but no, it isn't perfect. All in all, I think she's pretty well put together, especially for a lesson horse. Haha. I have seen some wonky looking lesson horses, they have great personalities for the job, but nothing to look at, haha.
