Shelly is a very nice affectionate mare with excellent ground manners and a non 'mare-ish' personality. She was used as a lesson horse for young children when she was very young.,and now she deserves a person to call her own. She has done second level dressage with a fourth level ride. She achieved it very quickly as she is very athletic. She is reserved not speedy but will respond to going off the leg easily when in regular work. She has a puppy dog personality with the people she knows well. She is an all around great mount.
