Are you looking for a classy little mare to take down the trails this summer?
Maisie is a dark bay 6 year old Paso-Quarter Horse cross (best guess). She originally came to rescue as an untrained 3 year old, and received nearly 6 months of training prior to adoption. She recently returned to us after her adopted family was unable to spend time with her. As she had stood around for more than 2 years without a rider, Maisie went directly to a professional trainer for a tune-up. The only flaw she’s had is that she can be somewhat barn sour if allowed to make her own decisions. She is very much a Paso personality on the ground and responds best to a calm, quiet hand.
Maisie will need a good horseman/horsewoman to remain at her full potential. This mare has zero buck or meanness to her – she wants to please and bond with her person and most importantly, have a job! She’s starting to sidepass and neck rein, and her best match will be someone who can ride and appreciate a horse that is soft and responsive. *See video 2 weeks into her refresher here* See video of indoor/outdoor arena ride here *
Maisie is approximately 13.2 hands tall, but rides like a larger horse. She walks, trots, gaits and canters, has a great stop and backs up. She’s been ridden indoors and out, most recently focused on rides outside an arena. She’s been ridden with and without other horses, across creeks and around cows. She loads, ties, hauls, has great feet and is an easy keeper. She is 100% sound and current on all care.
Maisie’s adoption fee is $650.
