Beginner safe, kids horse DELUXE! – $1500

Sweet 15.0 hh solid Chestnut Appaloosa mare! She is an all-around fantastic horse with a kind disposition and super safe demeanor. She does not spook at ANYTHING and has been ridden through drive-thrus, past chicken farms, in traffic, and through water. She is great for the farrier and will jump right into a trailer. She clips, ties, and bathes perfectly. She’s is 18 years young and still has some go if you ask that of her. You can ride her in just a halter and lead rope, or bridleless, using only inside and outside leg cues. She is great with my two children who are ages 2 and 3 years old, and is very gentle when they’re on her back. She walks out alone or in a group. She has been ridden with hot endurance horses and is fine with being left behind to walk at a slow pace. She is an easy keeper and is kept barefoot. She is 100% sound. She is a go anywhere, do anything kind of horse.

I’ve had this mare for six months, but knew her for over 8 years prior. She was my confidence builder and now that I have my seat back, I would really love for her to go to a good home where she will be enjoyed and used for what she does best, which is taking care of another beginner rider! She is priced to sell at $1,500 FIRM .YOU WILL NOT FIND A SAFER HORSE FOR YOUR KIDS AND TEENS AT THIS PRICE! Hook up your trailer and take her with you to your desired riding area and see for yourself! You will not be disappointed. This mare is the real deal.
