Dahlia

$2,800. 12yr old Sorrel Paint Mare – 15h

UTD on vaccines, farrier and deworming. Dahlia has a great stop and really engages her hind end. This mare moves out beautiful and smooth in hand as well as under saddle! She would be best for a single rider home who is at least an intermediate rider as she needs someone who will be patient and quiet. Prefers arena work and likes a job with a rider who works WITH her. Currently barefoot. Riding in a snaffle. Good in stall of pasture.

End of First month: Dahlia spent the first 2.5 weeks in quarantine and is getting into a heavier work load. The slow start gives me time to figure out the personalities of the horses I get in. I have learned that Dahlia is as sweet as they come. She is a sensitive mare who wants to please and can get nervous when she thinks her rider is upset with her. She needs a soft handed rider who is patient. That being said, I have seen her drive to work and know she would do well in a home where she was given a job.

Initial eval: Dahlia is sweet and willing. This horse has been out to pasture for a while but she still knows a good bit! She has a great stop on her already and once she gets mentally back into “work mode”, this girl is going to be a good mount! After our first ride I can tell you she will have some speed to her when asked.
