PENDING SALE - Up for sale is a beautiful black Pintaloosa draft cross mare. Pintaloosa means that she shows and carries both Appaloosa and pinto characteristics. She is approximately 10 years old, not registered, about 16.1 H, and trained to ride. She has beautiful fluid movement at all three gaits. If someone wanted to put the time and effort into her, I think she would do well at both Dressage and jumping. She is very athletic! Here is the skinny on this girl -- she was bought many years ago by Michael Muir, of the Access Adventure horse program, at a draft horse auction.... (read more) ( if you are not familiar with the work this program does for handicapped children and the horses they train, then look them up. They are an amazing facility and do wonderful things for both horse and human. ) He was told her sire was a purebred Friesian although there is no paperwork to prove this, but she does have that amazing movement that is similar to many Friesian crosses I have seen and worked with. He and his staff started her under saddle and did a lot of ground work in the round pen with her. She is excellently trained to free lunge in the round pen. She is voice commanded and will also stay on my inside shoulder and follow me wherever I go. If I walk, run, or turn she mimics my behavior. She has miles of trail rides under her saddle. I believe most of these rides have been with other horses but I know she has gone to the beach, and through water, and all over the hills of California. I do not believe she has had much training as far as arena at work goes. She has always been a good girl for me -- easy to catch, lead, tie, bathe, trailer, tack up and is good for the farrier. Her only bad habit is she can be a bit inpatient at the tie rail. This usually only lasts for up to 20 minutes and then she stands quietly. She has never offered to kick, strike, or bite. She is not your typical lazy draft type and this girl has a lot of go and forward motion. I do not think I would recommend her for a beginner or novice, as with most large horses they might become a little pushy if allowed to be. This girl is long and lean here in these pictures ( taken 2/12/16), but can be fattened up if you want the more traditional draft look with the thick neck etc. This is a beautiful horse at a steal of a price! Price is firm and she will only go to an approved home! Video available upon request -- but remember this is winter time so she is fuzzy and we have mud. :-)
