Katie is a nice riding horse for casual riding. Last Saturday she completed a 7 mile trail with a 14 year old rider and did very well. She is 25 years old and stands about 15 hands high. Although Katie doesn't think 25 is old, we are looking for a home for her that will do only casual 3-4 hour trail rides. She will do well for a light rider with medium riding skills. Katie loads well, stands for the farrier and is up to date on vaccinations, deworming and teeth floating.
Adoption fee for Katie is $400
Ronnie is a 5 year old gelding. Once a wild mustang from the Cuba, NM area, he is learning a new life as a riding horse. Ronnie stands about 14.3 HH. He is a stout horse, with good strong bone. He is learning to trust people, and doing very well in his training.
Because Ronnie was in Santa Fe, his first 30 days of training were completed with Zia. Zia concentrated on saddle work, and Ronnie is really doing nicely.
UPDATE - Ronnie and Ace have gone to the mountains for 30 days of riding!
Queenie is that rare horse which is calm by nature, gentle, forgiving of human misstep, and willing to please. She was running with a band of wild horses when captured, although she has some obvious domestic breeding. We estimate her to be about 8 years old. Queenie is about 15 HH and about 900 lbs. She is currently in saddle training, and is a star student. Queenie handles new things with grace, and is making remarkable progress in her development. She halters, leads, loads and accepts the saddle without any complaint.
