Phoenix was born and raised in Colorado, she spent some time in Texas as a family horse although they didn’t spend a lot of time riding her. She is just recently back in work preparing for her next family.
Don’t let the age of this mare fool you, she still loves trail riding and having a job. She has the best ground manners and would be well suited for an in-hand therapy job or pony camp. She can walk, trot and canter under saddle but it takes a lot for her to keep going at the canter.... (read more) She loads, ties, stands for the farrier, gets along with all her herd mates and generally low maintenance. She will lead or follow when on the trail and is not spooky. Phoenix is conformational correct with nice straight legs and a solid topline. She prefers to ride with a hackamore or sidepull, rather than a bit. She is very smooth and easy to ride but will toss her head every now and then, so we think she is used to riding in a martingale or tie down. She will require some conditioning to be suitable for kids again. as she has been spoiled in recent years.
Current Coggins and all routine regular care is up to date. She is currently barefoot and serviceably sound. I would recommend a joint supplement and bodywork if she continues to do moderate work. She is currently on senior grain with mix hay feed twice a day.
