Jensen, formerly known as “Brit-Neigh,” is a 19 year old sorrel Quarter Horse mare. She was adopted about 18 months ago and returned to us out of no fault of her own.
This is a nice mare who obviously had extensive training earlier in life. She neck reins, yields fore and hind, and works off leg. She has a smooth trot to sit, and she was extensively trail ridden in her adoptive home. She rides in an easy curb or a rope halter, and we haven’t discovered anything in particular that spooks her. She could certainly be ridden under English tack, as well.
We recommend an experienced adult handler for Jensen on the ground, as she does tend to be herd sour and a bit oblivious to humans, especially if one loses focus on her. We expect her to get better the more she is handled and brought back into work – but she IS a red mare 🙂 We are comfortable putting an advanced beginner on her to ride under supervision in the arena. Outdoors, she is forward and a stronger rider is probably her best match.
Jensen is up to date on vaccinations, Coggins, deworming and farrier care. We are setting her adoption fee at $400. Brief video on our Facebook; more will be added as she is legged up.
Additional photos coming soon.
