Misty is very gentle soul.... (read more) Please watch the entire 10 minute video to get an idea who she is and how amazing this horse really is. She is too slow for my husband and that is why she is for sale. We have known Misty for 5 years and he is ready to step up into a faster horse. She is a confidence builder to the extreme. She has carried visitors who have never ridden before out on trail.
There is a total of 30 minutes of video here you can watch. I encourage you to watch each and every one of them. We love our Misty and want her to go to a loving and gentle home. She has never taken a wrong step with us and has been well taken care of her whole life. We are her second owners and her first owner is family to us.
Misty is a babysitter horse and stands 15.1hh. Anyone can ride this gentle girl. She is a very pretty mare that carries herself well. She has excelled in many things. She stands to mount, is unflappable in traffic, trail safe, we have flagged off of her, been on mountainesque trails in Missouri, the flatlands of Texas and many points in-between: which means Misty rides well on the trail with no spook, bolt or buck! She rides across water, down steams, over logs and through thick brush. She is a well built mare that will fit a larger/taller rider. She has a decent neck rein (but that could use some polishing), good back up and GREAT brakes. Has more whoa than go! Misty is smooth in all gaits! Her Foxtrotter personality makes her very brave and super level headed. She would be great trail obstacle challenges, a rider who is just getting back into riding, or as a lesson horse. Misty has a great head shake and stays in her gaits. Misty is very gentle, loves attention and to be loved on and lots of treats! Misty is easy to catch with good ground manners. Misty gets along great with our other horses. She is easy to bathe, load and hauls very well. Misty stands super quiet for saddling, mounting and stands tied. She is easy to bridle, brush, pick up feet and stands well for the farrier. She is a very flashy, friendly mare with never any health issues her entire life. A gaited home is preferred, but not required. Here are other videos that will give you an idea who she is.
All interested buyers must come and ride this horse before the sale. Out of state folks are ok, but you have to come here to meet Misty in person and ride her to buy her if you are farther than 300 miles from Texas.
