I'm wanting to trade (or possibly sell) my girl, Lady.
She's an awesome horse. She's approximately 16 years old, and grade. She has her vices, but I haven't found one yet that doesn't. She's had multiple beginners ride her, and even had a 10 year old girl take her on an overnight camping/trail riding trip, and she was awesome. She knows the barrel pattern, and is very fast when asked to be, and has very good brakes. She has the conformation for Halter.
I'm going to be completely and totally honest about everything that's wrong with her because I do NOT want her to go to someone and them be like, "Oh, you never told me about this, I don't think I want her anymore."
Lady can be alfa or at the bottom of the pecking order, and she doesn't care either way. When she is the alfa mare, she's some-what of an instigator. She can be a little iffy about being caught, but food is her best friend. I rarely ever have a problem with catching her in the round pen, and unless she's having an off day, I can catch her in the pasture as well. This is far from where she was when I got her, because back then she would run to the opposite end of the pasture when she saw you walk in. She leads without problems, but for some she may seem a little pushy. She doesn't have a problem with getting in your space, but after a couple corrections she's like, "Ok I get it. I'm sorry." When I got Lady she would pull back EVERY time she was tied. She hasn't pulled back in months, but I'm not saying she won't. When you load her, and she knows she's leaving alone, you have to be SLOW getting her in the trailer. You can't just march right up to it and walk in because she WILL pull back. She does NOT like a roof over her head. For some reason she hates barns, stalls, even open carports (you know, the ones with just polls and a roof?). I believe something happened to her in the past that caused this behavior. She's outside permanently, and doesn't mind a bit.
Lady has never offered to bite, kick, buck, or rear. Not once has she ever spooked while riding, and she's a fantastic trail horse. She can be in the front of the line, middle, or back, and she's fine either way. She's not barn sour. She's especially good if she has other horses riding with her, but she does well alone, too. She's a beautiful mover. I believe she may have previously been used as a dressage horse, but I'm not sure. She stands for the farrier, and loves to be groomed, bathed, and pampered. She required a confident beginner, only because she's a little more fast paced, but not too much. I trust her with anyone. She's a very easy keeper. I feed her Strategy one time a day, free choice hay, and free choice pasture. She has great feet. Trim every 6-8 weeks and she's good to go. She's UTD on all shots and worming.
I would like to trade for a working cow horse, mare or gelding. I also may be interested in colts/studs with good conformation/bloodlines for breeding. May also consider
trading her for a stud fee...
If you would like to buy her outright, PM me. I haven't really thought about a price... She's worth much more to me than she probably is in this market...

Um, I think that covers it... Did I miss anything?
