Ginger is a nine year old, 14.2 hand sorrel quarter horse mare. She loads, clips, ties, picks up her feet well and is perfect for bathes and even udder cleaning. She stands great for the farrier and has solid hooves that are great year round barefoot. I have never had any lameness issues with her and she's a pretty low-maintenance girl. This little mare isn't very spooky and is desensitized well.... (read more) You can toss a longe whip over her back, neck and hindquarters continuously and she won't flinch. Plus, she'll stand still for the whip to be cracked right next to her. I have her as a 3 temperament because she can get argumentative under saddle but it's nothing that consistent work can't fix.
Ginger can pivot, yield her haunches and shoulders on the ground, along with side passing. She is very hardworking and athletic and tries her hardest to do what is asked. She has background in western pleasure and with some refreshing she is already getting the hang of it wonderfully. Recently she has been ridden mostly English with mostly HUS and jumping. She can travel in a beautiful outline with great rhythm and has nice, square knees over fences. Ginger has jumped 3' under saddle and cleared 3'6" on a long spot with room to spare. Her hind end can tuck like you wouldn't believe and she absolutely loves it. She can get frazzled if the jumps are "scary" but a kind hand and some encouragement can work her right through it. If she doesn't understand what is being asked she can get frustrated but she is able to be worked through it fine. I haven't tried her in any speed events or reining but I think she could go in lots of directions with training. She also has history with trail riding and could haul someone on the trails as well.
I am simply selling her because I don't have time. Sports and school activities along with a job has crammed my schedule and she deserves more attention and time. With consistent training and work I think she could be a great all around horse for someone. She is a convenient size that doesn't scare little kids and works great for adults. Videos and papers coming shortly, I just had surgery and can't ride. UTD on shots, teeth and hooves. A good home is a must, make an offer, motivated to sell.
