well gee. that stinks! way to ruin a great horse!!!
------------------ Warmblood cross mare, comes complete with issues - $650 (McKinney)
Very sweet Selle Francais thoroughbred cross mare for sale.
Chestnut with blaze and socks. Stands about 15.2 hands. 7 years old.
Big mover for her size.
Moves freely in the pasture and on the longe.
Sound, clean legs.
Was consistently jumping 3' - 3'9" last year, out of state. Has not been shown in Texas.
Not registered. No idea what bloodlines are.
Do not have a video.
Issue is that when ridden, will do a nice long free walk on a loose rein but will not go any faster than a walk. Does not buck, spook, or bolt. Just stops and stands there for a few seconds, then walks off calmly.
Found out recently that for several months toward the end of last year she was being ridden hard by a heavy handed trail rider in an poorly fitting saddle and bit.
I am inclined to think that her issue is both physical and psychological. Possible general back pain, possible kissing spine syndrome. No x rays have been done yet.
She is lovely to take for a walk and would make a nice jumper or eventer if she can be brought around. For now she is lounging in the pasture with a few pals.
No vices. Good ground manners. Loves attention. Just needs someone to take the time to figure out the issue. I do not have the time or money to fix this, not to mention that she really is an in your pocket kind of horse and I work too much to give her what she needs.
Back in the day she preferred to be ridden on a loose rein. She was a push button kind of horse, very uncomplicated and responsive. Lovely to ride.
I am her second owner and have known her since she was a yearling.
Once again, she is not registered, I do not know her bloodlines, and I do not have a video of her.
