ApHC coming 5 year old gray appaloosa mare with spots on hips. 14.3 Hands.
Handled just about daily.
She is current on coggins, shots, deworming and shoes.
She shoes, loads, bathes, ties, will stay on picket line or stall for camping trips.
She had 60 days with us here at Rafter C Farm where she was started under saddle, had ground work just about daily that involved desensitization, sensitizing, round penning, distinguishing and controlling various parts of her. head, shoulders, rib cage, haunches and so on... She flexes & breaks at the poll. She will side pass, back, canter collected or relaxed, moves her hindquarters off pressure or her forequarters. She was started with smooth transitions from walk, trot and canter and back down. With a little more time and training she could be a western dressage prospect.
She was exposed to tarps, sacks, balls, bags, cans, dragging things, and farm equipment. She was worked on the extreme obstacle course and took to things very quickly. The course obstacles included but are not limited to: jumps wooden jumps, poles, barrels and tires , bridges, water, teeter totters, pits, bogs, cowboy curtains and hanging drums to push through, side passing obstacles, backing obstacles, the TX 3 step, ropes and roping items or obstacles, chickens, dogs, traffic, equipment, power tools/ noise and so much more! She was trail ridden and taken on camping trips while @ Rafter C as well as used for farm use such as fence checking, dragging up fire wood and so on.
She has been hauled all over the country on trail rides, road rides and camping trips. She will cross bridges, water, logs and all sorts of terrain you find on the trails and some we have found off wondering about the forest off the beaten path.... Places she has been includes but not limited to: Warrior River Trail Ride, Bankhead National Forrest, Guntersville State Park, Manchester, The Crossville Saddle club road rides, Mt Hebron Fire and Rescue Trail Ride, Choccolocco- Warden Station Horse Camp and more....
She was ridden and evaluated for our search and rescue team where she had to pass certain standards to be accepted for use. Some of the test included: Standing to me mounted and dismounted. Loading and unloading in a set amount of time, patient temperament, had to pony and be ponied, no aggressive behavior - kicking, biting, bucking or rearing, Climb and descend hills, Stand facing up hill and then down hill for 2 minutes without getting impatient, cross water, bridges, ground obstacles at least 18 inches high, be able to leave the group or stand while the group left her, stand calmly for loud noises, bright lights and other distractions, carry saddle bags, be safe in traffic and have a passive temperament in a group or while being held with or near other horses. A lot of this was started and worked on while at Rafter C due to knowing she was a candidate for the search and rescue team.
Several of friends have ridden her when they needed a safe horse to ride. She is light and easy to handle. Gives no trouble in the pasture with other horses and mules.
Jo C would excel in trail, trail classes, obstacle challenges, extreme cowboy races and more, she has a good start on them already. She could easily go Western Dressage with a little more time and training as well as maybe a heel horse, team penning prospect or a youth horse for JR Rodeos.
