Hilda Mae is an 18 year old, 15'3" very intelligent mare. She has primarily been ridden Western, but can be ridden English as well. She is classically seat trained and responds well to commands. She does well in the arena and has everything from halter to western pleasure to dressage (English & Western) to drill, but prefers the sights of trail riding at this point.... (read more) Not sure about gaming - she isn't built for gaming. In the arena, she tends to be more whoa than go, but will pick and go when asked. On the trail, she will step out marvelously and go through where ever you point her. In the field, she will meet you at the gate and quite often she will come running. Once you earn her trust, she will come at a trot when she is called. Over the last year, she has been by herself, but with other herd mates, she likes to be in charge. When riding, she can be cold backed, especially for inexperienced riders and she is rather opportunistic in nature. But, for the right rider that expects discipline from their mount, she will go with the flow and responds very promptly when corrected. She'll try once and if she doesn't get away with it, she generally won't try again. She collects up with barely any contact on the reins and is a beautiful mover. Walks, jog/trot, lope/canters. Good for the farrier, vet, clipping, trailering. For the reasons previously mentioned though, she needs an intermediate to experienced rider. She would do well in western pleasure or performance, especially for someone needing a mount for WAHSET or 4H. Don't be fooled by her age, this mare is very healthy with solid bones and confirmation and requires minimal, if any, maintenance. Lastly, I would like to note she is HYPP N/N and was once used as a broodmare, so she would also be a worthy broodmare prospect.
