Nova is a Quarter Horse Paint cross. She is gray and coming 9 years old and a super easy keeper.
(Meaning: great strong feet, and she eats an orchard grass mix hay only and looks fantastic on it, always has a super low or no egg count on fecal exams, and doesn't require a blanket in winter just a shelter.)
**I have plenty of pictures I can email if you are interested but I can only put one on this ad and it is from the Autumn before her winter coat came in.... (read more)**
Her coggins was pulled 1/4/17 so she is current, and I can get a health certificate on her from my vet.
She is really placid in the pasture, loads onto a trailer like a dream, stands to be bathed, will stand tied all day, and stands for farrier. This mare has been extensively trained. You can literally go out and get her in the pasture, saddle up and ride her in a rope halter after months of not riding with a minimal groundwork refresh. She does not need a bit but has been ridden in a standard snaffle as part of her education. One rein stop and backup are great. Ridden on a loose rein. She is stocky enough to be ridden by a man or she could be ridden by an intermediate teen and not look too large.
I hate to say beginner safe because everyone's idea of beginner is different.
She's a sweet mare, not moody when in season. Has had a rope thrown off of her and been ridden through many trails. Goes over obstacles no problem both under saddle and on the ground, she also has had some training in the arena.
Basically an all-around sane trail horse that is easy to feed and easy to keep.
We are asking $1,000.00 negotiable, to the right home. We have put too much work into this mare for her to end up in a sale. We want her to go to a home that plans on riding her. We are selling because we have too many in work to ride adequately right now and she needs the least amount of work.
She has been around cows and watches them with intrigue. She has not been put on cows though I think she would do well working them; especially cutting.
We have taken good care of this mare and she has always been very healthy. Thanks for looking and have a good day!
