“Mai Tai” is a striking 9 year old black mare with plenty of chrome.... (read more) She is an American-bred Trakehner, however, exact bloodlines are unknown. Her looks combined with her flowing movement make her an eye-catching mare in the show ring. Mai Tai has been used in our Equitation program since 2015 and is a student favorite. She has previous show experience competing up to the 2’6” in both the hunter and equitation rings. Mai Tai spent the past two summers on lease with students, proving that she excels in a program developing an individual relationship with one rider. She is best suited for an intermediate amateur or junior working with a trainer and looking to move up. She is up to date on all routine health care and has no known health issues. Mai Tai is currently being ridden with front shoes and will receive routine hock injections for maintenance this fall prior to being sold. The following paperwork will be provided in her sale portfolio: health record with vaccine, deworming and farrier records for the past year, current Coggins, and a health certificate if traveling out of state lines.
