Dee is a broodmare only. She was broke at one time but I have only tacked her up. She did great. Her original owners broke and rode her as a 2 year old and then turned her into a broodmare at 3 years old and never rode her again. She is u.t.d. on shots. I will be worming her in 1 more week. I worm my horses every 12 weeks. I have tacked her up to see what she does. She stood for all of it. The saddle and bridle she handles well. If someone took the time they could break her to ride. You can lead kids or grandkids on her back. We do this with our 2 boys.
