Ishka came to us from a truck bound for a dead end sale north of our farm. Though she is not a Thoroughbred, we felt that giving her a second chance at a new life was not something to be denied because of her heritage. She is a branded Dutch Warmblood, but unfortunately came with no link to her pedigree or past.
Our vet has estimated her to be eighteen years old, and she has show us wisdom that comes with her years. She fit right in with our herd, gets along wonderfully with everyone she's with, and is a joy to have around. She works beautifully under saddle, has automatic lead changes, and has shown an interest in jumping when asked over small fences.
This beautiful mare has probably spent the last several years as a broodmare, and for whatever reasons was cast aside. She's sound, strong, and in wonderful shape--it bears remembering that age is not a disease, and these days, eighteen is young for a horse! Imagine being called old at fifty!!!
With a little reschooling, Ishka should work well for riders of any level. She has beautiful feet, clean legs, and is in wonderful condition. Ishka cross and single ties, leads, loads, and works great under saddle. She is suitable for any job--hunters, eventing, dressage, trail, pleasure, companion or broodmare.
