A little info about her... I've owned her for 3 years
She's a pure black Arabian mare (not registered that I know of) with one white sock
17 years old
Excellent feet! Never needs shoes on any surface
Trained western but has english experiene as well. She doesn't like a lot of contact with her mouth so she does best on a loose rein. Very responsive.
She neck reins really well & walk, trots, canters on cue, without hesitation though she's not constantly trying to run out from under you.
She was herdbound when I bought her but we've long since gotten over that & she goes well in a crowd & on her own.
She can be ridden bareback in a halter, out on the roads, ditches & highways with ignorant truckers speeding by & honking
NOT spooky & loves to be on the move.
She farriers & loads with no issues.
Has years of gymkhana experienced & can runs barrels, poles, etc.. She will jump but not very enthusiastic about it.
I wouldn't say she's for a beginner, although I know she was used as a lesson horse in the past & i've ponied beginner kids on her. She's very safe, however she still has some spunk & like I said she doesnt like heavy hands.
She will lope circles, change directions, ect, but if you're jerking on her mouth she wont hesitate to give a buck to remind you to lay off.
She has been to the mountains & through ROUGH terrain & water & did fantastic! She also bathes, longes & is easy to catch
Sorry about the book lol
