Grade Mare, 14.3 hands
Arrival: August 2018
Exclusive Monthly Sponsor: Shawn S.
Abba is a gorgeous varnish roan Appaloosa mare. She leads, lunges, trailers, and stands tied well. She is currently in training under saddle and is being ridden in a western saddle with a snaffle bit. She does not always stand still while mounting, so she’s working to learn this. She understands direct pressure and some neck reining. She also stops well, likes to move out and has a smooth trot and lope.
She is currently being treated by a farrier for a front “club” hoof, but continued corrective farrier services should correct this.
Abba has a long history of being a packhorse, so she can be buddy sour if she’s the only horse on the trail or in situations where there’s a lot of activity. She will need more training if she is to be ridden solo. An intermediate or advanced rider would be best for her. Be sure to take a look at Abba; she is a popular one!
