I've owned this horse for a few years and I find her very hard to sell, but I need something better suited to what I'm doing. Please let me know what you think.
Willow(DAR BUCK N QUARTER) is a gorgeous 7 year old arab/paint mare, registered. She is a beautiful Buckskin with a star and a small spot on her side. Nice short back, beautiful head and neck, lovely mover. She has that look at me attitude, the first horse every one notices in the pasture. 15.1hh.
Willow has always been sound and healthy, never a lame step. Good feet, teeth done last year, up to date deworming and farrier work.
Her dam is Sandy's Time to Flirt(APHA) and her sire is the registered arabian BA Heartbeat , who has phenominal breeding and some of the greats up close on his papers, such as PADRON and BASK.
Willow Is very easy to catch, leads, ties, lunges and bathes. Loads and travels well. Stands to be tacked up and mounted. She has been ridden english, western, australian and bareback, with a halter or simple snaffle, w/t/c/gallop. Spent many miles on the trail, been to the mountains twice, crossed fast moving water, up and down steep hills, mud, snow, ditch crossings. Good with other animals and traffic, been around goats, minis, dogs and cats, cattle, met elk on the trail no problem. Hopped over a few jumps without hessitation.
She is quick and athletic and would likely do very well cattle penning or something similar. Starting to neck rein and move off my leg, Great to open gates off of, stands tied to the trailer and has been high lined. Also LOVES foals, will take care of weanlings in the herd. No buck/bolt/rear.
I have been riding with alot of Begginner-Intermediate riders lately and I really need a steady trail horse with a relitively "bombproof" personality. Willow is very quick and alert. Would excell in a disapline where she has a solid job, gets bored just walk/trot all day. I really love this horse, will go to a great home only.
$2500 or will concider trade for a well broke trail horse of equal value. 4-10 years old, 14.2-17hh, sound and reliable, not spooky, very sane(suitable for leading trail rides with inexperienced riders) no buck/bolt/rear, forward way of going is a plus.
