HQ TIP THE BARMAID—$2,900
Nevada is a gorgeous, foundation bred, athletic mare. We started her in 2014, put in a lot of groundwork and light rides, then turned her out for most of the fall/winter. In 2015, we rode her quite a bit more, and got her going nicely at the walk, trot, and canter, as well as introducing collection and lateral movement. She is responsive to seat and leg cues, soft to a snaffle or traditional hackamore, and has a good handle. We did have some problems with bucking. She’s been out to pasture for a couple years now and needs to be restarted. We have come to accept we currently don’t have the time to go back to square one with her ourselves.
On the ground, Nevada is entirely sweet and safe to be around. She is good for the vet and farrier. She’s never had any lameness or health problems. She isn’t spooky or fearful. She stands quietly for grooming and mounting, takes the bit and saddle nicely, and is used to ropes, tarps, machinery, and dogs. She’s got a lot of talent and could go in any direction. Or, with her excellent pedigree and ground manners, she’d make a good brood mare. We’re open to reasonable offers.
The video below is assembled from a fairly random selection of videos from a few years ago, back when Nevada was in regular work.
