Hesitantly offering my mare for long term free lease as a paddock mate or project to a confident, capable rider.
Maggie is a solid 15hh, 10yr old Standardbred mare. I have had her since she was 4 as a paddock mate as well as just to muck around with (mostly on the ground). She has great ground manners and knows lots of Parelli.
She could be ridden by someone who is competent, no beginners because she is very opinionated and will try to get her way. In saying that, I’ve been bringing her back into work lately and she’s been good, just super green but she doesn’t mean any harm. Experienced riders won’t find her attitude much of a problem. No rear or buck, just a decent kick out to the side. She doesn’t kick on the ground. She could make a nice horse for someone to just ride around the paddock, because she’s very laid back in situations shes familiar with. To take her out and about would require someone confident because she’s not had much mileage and isn’t very self-confident.
Maggie would make a nice broodmare. She is maiden as far as I know but she loves the calves she is paddocked with!
She is not perfect for the farrier and or to worm, but both can be done with patience. I haven’t floated her while she’s been here but I have loaded her a few times and she is easily persuaded to do this using food.
Fine on her own or with others. Is at the top of the pecking order in the herd. Respectful of all fences. Super easy keeper – barefoot and uncovered, holds weight well.
She just had her teeth done last week and the dentist said she has awesome teeth.
I am open to long term (at least 3 years) free lease or sale.
