6 Year old, 14.3H Cremello Quarter Horse Mare. River has done a lot of trails and foundation work and is started on the pattern, she was completely unstarted 2 years ago and has been brought along slow and steady. Shes had 30 days training 6 months ago and just returned from 30 days barrel training this week. She is bending and flexing nicely, just needs more miles and someone who has the footing to work her at speed. We've mostly focused on trotting and loping the pattern.... (read more) She has been to a few local shows and done wonderfully in exhibition. On Trails she is very laid back and has taken everything very well including dogs, gunshots, deer, water and small log jumps. She has the foundations of a nice barrel horse with potential for anything. (looks great in English tack and loves to jump!) Has been ridden bareback, western, and english. Athletic and willing enough to go any direction.
I'm only selling because I don't have the time to keep her up and finish her out and student loans are eating me alive. Goes barefoot, has been shoed for some of the rockier trails we like to do but does not need them. Easy keeper. Only vice is she needs work learning to stand/wait patiently while tied. Still green so I would say she needs an intermediate rider who knows how to keep her training going. Fantastic on trails and loves to chase a cow but has not done any cattle work other than collecting ours in for shots.
Good for the farrier and vet. Current coggins. Asking 2500 negotiable to the right home. Email/text anytime or call after 5 during the week. I am available after 5 during the week or anytime on weekends. Out of some very nice lines (sire is Southern Texas Pete and dam is Gold Chick by Clay both are listed on allbreedpedigree.com), we do have her breeding papers and registration certificate but due to getting her as a 4 year old we have not been able to afford the late registration fee. Located in Northern VA just outside of Winchester.
