This gorgeous TWH mare is the older stout Plantation Style. She even resembles the foundation Morgan type. Quality quality mare!
"Desi" is 10 yrs old and 14.3 hh. She is very stout build, pretty head, goes barefoot, clean solid legs/bone structure. She is Reg'd (pedigree at: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/design+of+rose).
She is a TRAIL HORSE! Good with traffic too. Likes to get out and see something new. She has a forward walk and nice smooth ground covering gait...We ride her in just a plain broken Myler Snaffle bit - Desi is responsive and sensitive and takes a light handed rider. She can also ride bitless bridles too.
This sweet mare is awesome on the ground! Excellent manners, good for vet/farrier/loading, grooming/tacking etc. Loads well, stands tied patiently etc. Just lovely around the barn!
Desi gets frustrated if worked too much in an arena or pen...she needs to be out on the trails and investigating new places. She would be a fantastic ENDURANCE mount. She is not hyper! Just likes to see something new.
She is naturally gaited - is just a tad rusty on her gait. She does have a nice even 4-beat gait and would be regular if worked more consistantly. Her pace is smooth but we are working to condition her better and get her back into her natural 4beat.
**ONLY for Adv Intermediate + Level Rider! She can test a rider at first to see what type of person they are. Desi is sensitive and responsive, forward not hyper but takes a confident level headed rider. If you are that then she is the sweetest smoothest nicest mare and you could have a lasting relationship.
Adoption Fee: $ donation requested of 500 - this is a gorgeous, well built, well bred mare! Out on the market she would be an easy $2k++ Her adoption donation will be used directly toward providing for the other rescues on the farm!
