As for getting more information about her, if you know which unit she was used on, you could contact them and ask to speak to the field supervisor. They would probably connect you with a sergeant or leiutenant. I don't really know what kind of records they keep on the horses as far as breeding but she wouldn't have any health problems or they would have gotten rid of her immediately and not kept her around for retirement. Most of the horses the state uses are bred in Huntsville and started there before being distributed around the state. I was looking on the state website and found this. You might be able to contact him and get more information about her. Good Luck. :)

As a green horse owner who is also afraid of heights [Henry is 16.6h] and wasn't a very trusting person, my Henry has taught me to deal with not only him but my fears and insecurities. Your Molly sounds like she has the experience to do the same for you. Keep up with your lessons but don't rush riding. Just do grooming and ground work and spend time with her. You have to build the trust and loose the fear and Molly will teach you how. Once she knows you trust her and visa versa Molly will know that it is her job to keep you from falling or getting hurt. Some may not agree with me but I feel if you don't 100% trust your horse then they can't totally trust you. With out that bond you can never feel comfortable in the saddle.
Good luck and with time and patience you and Molly will get to enjoy your 25 acres

Wow, I didn't really know where you were but you are really down there ain't you? I wish you were closer and then I might go ride with you but I'm all the way up in Amarillo. Just remember to stick with it, it just takes time. :)

OMG! I live in Alvin, Texas too! AND I know your horse! I almost bought her for my daughter! She is an amazing mare! I am a memeber of a local ladies Riding group here in Alvin. I would be more than happy to help you with any questions you might have or if you want to get together. I have a round pen and TONS of places to ride! Congrats! Molly is the PERFECT horse to learn on!
