Hope is an 11 year old unregistered mare and has been ridden by a 14 year old. She is DEAD broke. You can ride her bareback, double. I even trust the kids that have never ridden on this mare. Easy going, very sweet mare. This was a rescue horse, who really appreciated being rescued! She also is making a good pole horse. She is a natural athlete and beautiful lead changer. Very light mouthed. No vices!!
