Success Story – (Re)-Adopted February, 2020
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 Argentine curb or a rope halter, and we haven’t discovered anything in particular that spooks her. Tarps, deer, wind, chickens, dogs, you name it – she’s seen it and isn’t bothered by it. She could certainly be ridden under English tack, as well, although lots of collection is not in her wheelhouse.
We recommend an experienced adult handler for Jensen on the ground, as she does tend to be a bit herd sour and pushy if she’s allowed to be. After an initial “check” to see if you know what you’re doing – she’s the best partner you could ask for. Under saddle, an advanced beginner has no problems putting her through her paces in the arena. Outdoors, she is forward, so she could intimidate a less-experienced or timid rider. She would be a good match for an intermediate-advanced adult who wants to teach their kids to ride, or someone looking for an unflappable trail horse with a great work ethic.
She does have some arthritic changes in one hock, so performance events are not recommended. PPE welcome at adopter’s expense.
Jensen is up to date on vaccinations, Coggins, deworming and farrier care. Visit our Facebook for videos.
