Hi guys, haven't been on here in awhile! Anyways, my farrier gave me a very large, 20 year old snowcap roan-ish foundation bred appaloosa mare as a companion for my arabian. She's in excellent health, other than genetic poor vision at night, and being a bit overweight. She was in need of a new home, as her last owner was too old to care for her. She's extremely gentle and well mannered, UPTD on all vet work. However, no one knows if she's broke or not. The previous owner claimed her grandkids sat on her in the pasture, but that's all I know. Is it ok to test her out with a saddle? Is she to old? My Arab is 21, but he's always been ridden even tho he's a bit if a challenge. I Ride both English and western, if that info helps.
