Pride's Blue Princess (Sophia) foaled in October, 2002 is by Pride's John Blue and out of Ebony's Silver Design C (Jewel). Sophia boasts of Pride's Silver Delite, Delight of Pride, Pride of Midnight, Midnight Sun, Ebony Masterpiece, and Merry Go Boy in her lineage. Sophia is gray with a mixed mane and tail and stands at 14.3. Sophia has a good walk and is naturally gaited, with a moderate speed. With training and more riding, she will go the distance. She is extremely people-friendly and will be one of the first to meet and greet at the fence.
Sophia has been trail ridden in NC at Kings Mountain, Blowing Rock, and South Mountain. She has completed the Freedom Level of Dennis Reis' training, with the exception of side passing. Due to her size and bone structure, rider plus saddle may not weigh more than 180 pounds. Natural Horsemanship experience required; interest in Gaited Horsemanship preferred (http://www.whitesellgaitedhorsemanship.com). Sophia will gait in a snaffle bit; no long shanks.
Sophia is up-to-date on shots and coggins; farrier trims every 6 weeks; loads and unloads easily. Can be good for novice rider, but not for for a true beginner. Initial riding lesson provided to improve your communication with Sophia.
