Meadow is a Quarter Horse mare. I would have to double check her paperwork, but I think she is about 8 years old and 15.1hh. She was farm raised by True Meadow Farm in Cavendish, Vermont. I started Meadow under-saddle a few years ago and she was a fast learner. Since saddle breaking, Meadow hasn't done a whole lot until she came to my farm this past fall. This spring we spent a lot of time getting to know each other again and building up her confidence. She wasn't so sure she could leave her buddy, Chief. My friend Elise rode Meadow out with me too. We explored the woods and went down the roads.
Meadow has a quiet disposition and loves attention. Her ground manners are great and she trailers well. With a confident rider, she will go out alone. With an intermediate rider, she will go out with another horse. When out, she can lead or follow. She does not do well with a rank beginner rider because she doesn't take mixed signals well and gets frustrated.
In the ring, Meadow will neck rein. On the trail, she likes a loose rein and a quiet hand. Her gaits are nice giving you many different speeds of a trot. Her canter in the ring feels rushed and we are working on it. On the trail, her canter is ok. I am willing to do a trial period with Meadow to make sure she is happy in her new home. $3500.
