4 year old mare -15 hands BLM Mustang
I am pleased to offer this seasons first finished saddle horse from Sunrise Ranch!
Laredo is the kind of level headed solid mare that everyone is looking for! Her disposition is laid back but alert and confident. As such, she has proven herself to be an excellent trail horse; confident on rough terrain (deep muck, snowy drifts, rocky streams, steep hills, icy ground).... (read more) She will carefully go where you ask and is not dependent on or compelled to stay by the other horses. True to nature as a Mustang, she is well aware of everything around her and ahead on the trail, but she is a thinker and not a spooky horse.
This mare is built SOLID and very square. She is plenty strong for a heavy rider but also a nice height for mounting. She has been ridden by men, kids, and women and is used to children, dogs, cattle, and farm equipment, She is easy to catch, traffic safe, trailer loads, ties calm, fine for the farrier, excellent ground manners, rides bareback, pulls a kid sled, sends/disengages/backs off focus.
We raise Scottish Highland cattle here and Laredo enjoys doing the herding with us. She tracks a cow nice and has the confidence to push them.
Laredo is a dominant horse in the herd but her laid back nature makes her easy to get along with. (she is not over-aggressive or a chaser)
On her back you will find Laredo's gaits noticeably smooth. Her walk is not fast, but she has a wonderful jog trot that is very comfortable and tireless! Her trot is naturally collected and can extend to be quite fast. Her canter is relaxed and easy. She is not a speedy horse and wont win a race under saddle, but we know she has it in the pasture!
Laredo's color is a beautiful carrot orange bright sorrel with the boldest white blaze and socks. Her mane, which is lighter, contrasts nicely and there is LOTS of it! She keeps her condition / weight well on hay and has always been in great health.
Here at Sunrise Ranch we take our time with training and, use natural horsemanship techniques, we prioritize on groundwork, desensitization, and softness and lightness under saddle. At this point, Laredo stands to be mounted and dismounted, rides off your seat (slows and rates), works very well in a side-pull, is being introduced to a bit, yields hindquarters, forehand yields, moves nicely off your leg (gives her shoulder), turns off hindquarters, backs with vertical flexation (even uphill!), flexes and softens correctly, and is learning side-passing.
Laredo is one of three wild Mustangs we adopted from the BLM in 2014. She was captured in Jackson Mountain, Nevada in 2012. Her adoption papers are clear and in hand. The last three pictures were taken at the BLM facility when we picked her up.
The other two mustangs we adopted that year will also be offered for sale this spring, and eventually four more that we obtained last year. We have enjoyed gentling, training, and riding our wild horses and will never forget what we have learned in the process! Mustangs are known for their intelligence, hardiness, sure-footedness, and stubbornness. The truth is that once you have earned their trust and developed a friendship, you couldn't ask for a better partner!
Sunrise Ranch is located in Mason, WI which is 15 minuets south of Ashland, WI. We are constantly is the process of saddle training horses of all breeds and sizes. We also breed Registered Morgan and have a beautiful stud that will be available for service later this summer. Lessons and training with your horse are also available.

Here at Sunrise Ranch we take quality green horses and train them to be family-safe trail mounts. We do this by focusing on a solid foundation through authority in groundwork and encouraging the horses confidence by kindness and exposure. Challenging our mounts in ranch work and long trails gives them experience that strengthens their focus.
Sunrise Ranch has a growing herd of beautiful registered Morgans and their Palomino stallion is available for stud service.... (read more) Watch for foals of excellent Morgan temperament, type, and color produced here!
Every year also breed for a selection of fine Moriesian and Friesian crosses. These crosses are chosen based on personality and athleticism and are all registered.
At Sunrise Ranch we are continually progressing a variety of new horses into trustworthy saddle horses, so visit our website or call and if we have what you are looking for!
