San Rosie is a big, strong, pretty, straight, and well-built long 4-year-old Quarter Horse mare who is maturing into a true 'bulldog' with her powerful heavily-muscled body and broad chest and stance. Her bloodlines are of the well-respected, old-time Hancock and Command lines through her sire, and the more modern cutting and working cow horse breeding of Parson Badger to PEPPY SAN BADGER. Bred to be a working horse, San Rosie has been beautifully started with lots of ground training and handling with Natural Horsemanship methods prior to ever being mounted.... (read more) Her owner is a knowledgeable horseman who started San Rosie under saddle on her own and they have since participated in several Joe Wolter clinics, where she did nicely. San Rosie isn't appropriate for a 'backyard pasture pet' type-of-home; her breeding shines through in that she is very athletic, shows lots of cow sense, and likes to stay busy. She has excellent respectful ground manners, a brisk walk, smooth jog and trot, and a great canter. She is light and responsive to cues, knows how to back and open gates from the saddle, and is trained to stand at a mounting block. San Rosie is more comfortable outside or on the trails than an indoor arena, where she has only had limited riding. She has also been ridden out on trails, and even on day rides up in the Elkhorn Mountains. She is much happier outside in a field or pasture situation instead of a box stall. She has no vices other than cribbing, which you can ignore or manage with the use of a cribbing collar. San Rosie lives by Saint Helens (a bit northwest of Portland, Oregon), is sound, healthy, current on her dentistry, shots, and worming and is ready to move along with a knowledgeable new owner who has the time and energy to finish her training in reining, working cow, cutting, ranch work or more. Price IS negotiable.
