Molly is a very special horse who has been through a lot in her lifetime. She has a great temper despite what she has been through. Molly is versatile and will make a great horse for someone who is willing to put time into her.
Molly is a 12 year old (estimated by my vet) red roan appaloosa mare. So far I have ridden Molly under a western saddle at walk, trot, canter, and on the trail over small obstacles.... (read more) Molly has not thrown a buck, spooked or bolted since I have had her. She is a great listener under saddle. She doesn't need much of a bit, or anything fancy on her head. She has been trailed on rocky hills, muddy turns, and through rivers. Molly has been ridden with other horses, but if leading the horse behind her does need to keep about a 3-4 ft distance. She will follow with no problems. She has a great pace, not too slow, not too fast. She does not fight on the trail or in the arena at all. Under saddle she has no vices that I've noticed so far. Molly would make a good lesson horse for older riders, as long as she is being supervised.
Molly does have special needs when it comes to general ground work, and I think this is primarily due to the fact that she has been through so much in her past. I am currently working with Molly (and seeing improvements) with tacking up and picking up her back legs. She does not fight being tacked up but somewhere along the road has picked up the habit of turning when trying to put the saddle on, this is currently being worked on and improving greatly. When I got molly her hooves were very short, I have since had her fronts shod. She is very sensitive with her back legs being picked up. I have been working on this, and this like the saddle is improving. She stands while being groomed, takes a bit, lets you pick her front hooves, and stands while being mounted. She does respond well to being corrected. I am also suggesting Molly be placed either by herself or with one other horse.
I have had molly for about 6 weeks now. I purchased Molly from an auction, with the intent of pulling her off the feed lot. Since she has been with me she has been fully vetted, shod, and ridden consistently. I unfortunately do not have as much time for her as she deserves, because I have so many other horses. Molly truly is a solid horse. She does need some weight on her back , but this is nothing that can't be fixed. She has a great heart once you've earned her trust, which is not hard with lots of treats.
A good home is a MUST. The price is set at $700 to assure she does not end up back at auction, and may be negotiable depending on the buyer. I do recommend an intermediate rider, and intermediate to advanced handler. I am selling Molly honestly, all her vices have been listed as known. As I continue to work with her, I will be working her under an english and western saddle, working with her on ground manners, and furthering her training. As she advances her price will increase. She is located in Woodbine, Maryland. I am flexible if anyone would like to come see her.
