Had this mare recently evaluated at a professional H/J facility - she did VERY well - jumping everything she was presented with easily - no pull, no rushing and no ducking out - even when asked to jump at an angle - this mare is really good. The owner of the facility suggested I advertise her for $10,000.00 - which I would love to do, of course! But the economy tells me that that may not be the best way to go :) With her rider off to Japan (this time)- I have now started riding her and have to say - this IS a nice horse - I am not going to keep dropping her price - she is willing, not cranky or one to balk or bolt - soft in the face - moves off the leg easy - plenty athletic but waits for you to ask - This mare could be a GREAT pony club horse - she has been shown and is ready to go show - her history is the same:
Born, raised, trained and shown with one owner - heck of a nice mare currently showing (last show @ SVE 5/5/13) and clearing fences easily - pic is from last show going over a 2'6" fence. Very light in the face - at this time an intermediate rider or above would be best as long as her rider doesn't hang on her mouth - she is pretty light in the mouth. Forgiving mare - rides to fence nicely - if you mess up she will fix and forgive - and come right around and jump it again - she does not refuse or rush. Dancing was started as a jumper - but seems to like the pace of Hunters - she is a smart mare and is figuring it out pretty quickly. The more consistent this mare gets worked - the better she is - she fast becoming a 'point and shoot' kind of mare but we have a difficult time of consistency here - her rider is leaving again for Australia for a month. - Have more pics - plus a video of her getting her ears clipped. Loads and trailers fine with company or alone. Ties like a champ - I can give her a bath and leave her tied in the sun while I go in and make some lunch - she drops a hip and dries in the sun -
UPDATE - hauled her to an obstacle course on Saturday (10/19) in a western saddle, she has NEVER done anything like that and she was great - looked at everything - rode off on trail alone - rode with other horses - went through 'the tarp tunnel' - stood around like a champ. She was a real pleasure to ride.
Quick apology to anyone who commented on facebook - I cannot find those comments and was able to respond - please know that I was not ignoring you
Company / Facility:
Wb Performance Horses -
Small facility. Standing two stallions that have the right qualities for siring superior working horses. Chex Colonel Lena - a beautiful, out-standing foundation bred and built cutting stallion that is stamping his colts with athleticism, looks and a ton of desire to work a cow.
Dun Breezin - a gorgeous, well built, well bred, very flashy buckskin Overo with no quit in him - his colts vary from working cowboy horses in the Sierras to show horses in San Jose.
I am blessed to have them both in my life.
