Cinnamon (Bob's Cinnamon Lightning): Certified to Breed in the Rocky Mountain Horse Association: DOB: 5/22/2008
Sire: Zeus's Black Lightning, Dam: Sycamore's Midnight Milly.
Chestnut mare, 15H, Sweet and calm disposition. She was born on our farm (I helped deliver her), and I worked with her as a young horse, then started her under saddle as a 3 year old. She has a solid conformation, lots of chest and great bone structure. Great mare to breed to a chocolate or grulla stallion to, as she'd produce nice foals.
She's been out on the trail for the past 3 years, and can go out alone or in a group. Easy to handle, not afraid of things, and will cross water easily. I do lots of obstacles with her, and she can back around bushes, I can open/shut gates when riding, sidepass, go through killer noodles, and so on. She has a nice saddle gait, but she also walks out well. My friend used her in a horse clinic we had at our farm in May by Kate Moran Anderson of Golden Creek Equine. The clinic focused on helping the horse be more balanced under saddle, and Cinna did fabulous in both the ground and mounted exercises!
**Update on 8/19/2014: I took this mare, along with my gelding, up to a friend's house in southern CO yesterday--my friend rode my mare, I rode my gelding, and we had 3 other horses in our group. Cinna exceeded all of my expectations on the ride--the elevation was approx. 7,500 ft plus, and the first part of the ride was up some gnarly trails. Cinna isn't used to the deadfall and big rocks, but she handled everything very carefully, picking her way around obstacles, rather than rushing. We went through a huge field of dying skunk cabbage and grasses that were belly high (full of horse flies)--she was poised and did great here too! A couple of deer spooked out of the timber, but Cinna and my gelding stayed cool and collected. She was tired after the 3 hour ride, but she did a fantastic job taking care of my friend on the trail! This was the first time my friend had ridden, since her horse bucked her off and gave her a concussion two months ago--my friend felt totally safe on Cinna. High praise!!
I'm selling her to reduce my numbers, and wouldn't have done so, had I not decided to breed two of my best mares via A.I. this year. Cinna is a gem, and will take care of you out on
the trail. Great husband horse with a sweet attitude! Up to date on vaccinations, hoof care, full dental (2013) and worming. Easy to handle for all of these health procedures.

Jennifer's Mountain Horse Farm -
We breed, raise, train and sell gaited Rocky Mountain and Kentucky Mountain horses. Always good riding horses for sale. Located in Eckert, (western) Colorado. I do all of the horse handling/colt starting on my own, so the horses we sell have consistent training. I use a variety of natural horsemanship techniques to work the horses. Rockies are a great breed for beginners, or those wanting a smoother ride.
