Dixie loves to play with her "siblings" here at R2, Obi, Vega and Dave. All the young horses love to spar!
This sweetie pie was imprinted at birth and very very gregarious! Shows strong gait at liberty! Early in 2019 we will be offering this sweet mare for sale with a strong start under saddle and substantial trail riding experience. She has started her trail riding career! (May 2019!) She is brave and confident!
First things first- she is 100% healthy. UTD on de-worming (4 times a year) and vaccinations (every year) as well as hoof trimming. We trim every 4-6 weeks to ensure proper hoof health.
The rocky breed is an easy to care for breed and very willing with beginners as long as a steady education with an experienced horse person is involved as well. I find them VERY easy to train and VERY well gaited.
This girl could be suited for families as he is so quiet. She has a great personality to prove himself as an advanced beginner horse. Talk about that rare color too! She would be perfect for parades and fun family outings! What a horse to show off! Speaking of a great all around type horse, she is definitely that type. She Takes everything as an learning or bonding opportunity. She is also very thick boned and durable as far as soundness! Dixie's feet are round and hard, the perfect Rocky foot. She could mature to carry larger riders with this type of confirmation. She may not look it now, but she has 3-4 more years to fully mature physically. Her mentality though, is very ready for her saddle work!
With my training, I utilize many training techniques to create a well-rounded horse. Whether you follow Pat Parelli, Ray Hunt, Nuno Oliveira, Clinton Anderson or other top trainers, we optimize the abilities of each horse to create a willing and dependable partner under saddle and a far more dependable horse on the trail! So far there is VERY little spook in this horse! She is so in tune to learning as well!
She is fed high quality alfalfa timothy mix, then transitioned to high quality hay. Pelleted feed is supplemented during the times of exercise Trace minerals are always provided free choice.
She gets along with all kinds. We have a mix of mares, geldings, pony, babies, yearlings, pregnant mares. (Mainly she sticks to the bottom or middle of the pack for pecking order)
This is a one of a kind mare that has been tested and unique! Consider riding the most easily gaited horse on the market with a lovely quiet and calm disposition!
