Cheyenne was a neighbor of Riding Star Ranch that was donated when her owners felt like they couldn't give her the time that she deserved. We were told that she came from a Mustang farm. She had begun training as a driving horse, but was never put-to a cart and has only been ground driven. Under saddle, we were told she has a tendency to confuse easily and will try to rear; we have not had any issues with her rearing under saddle since she came to the ranch in January. She is now being ridden by an 11-year-old on a daily basis and has been trail riding as well. Cheyenne needs someone that can understand her behavior and why she does the things that she does; she is definitely a one-person horse and once she finds that person who will give her a chance, she will give them her everything.
We are offering her for adoption/foster because we relocated to a new location and need to downsize on our herd.
- Stands on cross-ties for grooming and bathing
- Has great ground manners when grooming
- Knows how to lunge in a round pen and on a lunge line
- Stands while being saddled and bridled
- Has a very smooth gait while riding and learns very quickly
- Shows territorial behavior in a stall when she is not wearing a halter
Cheyenne needs an Intermediate to Experienced horse-person.
Someone with Natural Horsemanship Training is a plus and would benefit her horse-nality type. Someone that is confident and knowledgeable with horses and doesn't use excessive force would be a perfect fit of Cheyenne.
Please call and/or text (386) 848-7953 if interested.
