Roary has the fairy tale look!!! A stunningly beautiful TWH Mare, that stands a 15.3 hh and is 9 yrs old. this mare really has a pressence about her! She has as much mane/forelock as a Friesian and is a gorgeous true palomino with a blaze. Roary LOVES attention and really will bond with people and is seeking a perfect partnership with that special somebody!
Roary is best suited for a confident intermediate rider (NOT for a beginner or child).... (read more) She is good on the trail, been around traffic, ridden on some large rides (50+horses) and does well but she also "shows off" and has a bit of a motor and can spook a little. She has no vices and is an absolute LOVE that everyone falls for!
She has had an on/off lameness in the past couple of years. She has been thoroughly examined - seen several vets, chiropractors, special farriers etc. We cannot find anything wrong!!!!! She does best with front shoes and needs to be kept in active work to strengthen her hindquarters. She is currently being lightly worked/ridden a couple times a week and should be okay to continue being a riding horse but must be kept in condition (not standing around for a month and then asked for a 3 hr ride) and even with regular routine she may or may not have an occasional "off" day.
If you want a GORGEOUS and truly SWEET horse that loves attention then she is your girl for sure! Roary likes to be pampered and will be adopted to a home that will keep her in great condition to help ensure her health and soundness. She likes to be in on hot days during summer and really enjoys a fan, likes to be in on cold winter nights and is used to being blanketed etc. This mare is not the turn out and forget type companion - needs to have some daily attention type home.
