Molly is a 14 hh 20 y.o. dappled bay Morgan mare whom we inherited this past summer from a teenaged friend who outgrew her and is going off to college. We do not need an extra horse and would like to find her a good home where she will be useful and loved. Molly is trained in the hunter/jumper discipline and for the past 6 years has been extensively ridden by her teenaged girl owner and her friends. Molly is a "been there, done that" kind of horse, quiet and sane but energetic, not spooky, willing.... (read more) She is very relaxed and easy to ride at a walk; at a trot and canter she is a little stronger, somewhat high headed, and does have short stride. She does not get her leads and is not very balanced, but it is also true that she has been out of work for about a year. Her former trainer has told me that she will round if you insist, but you have to work at it; she has a hard mouth. Because of this I would describe her as appropriate for beginners at a walk only, as long as they are mature enough not to kick her into high gear! Or lead line as well, and even therapeutic riding (though you would probably want to use a tie down if trotting) where she is being led would be great! She would need an advanced beginner or intermediate rider for the trot or canter. Molly is the alpha mare and only mare of our herd of 4; she gets along great with the boys but does not let them push her around! She is in excellent health and a very easy keeper, good feet, bathes, clips, loads, good for farrier. UTD on shots/coggins. No history of lameness or colic. She acts like a much younger horse, and is friendly and very smart. Her previous owner actually taught her some tricks like "kissing" and bowing.
