Foxy went to Midwest Horse Fair 2022!
Foxy came to us through a private owner in Colorado. Within 5 rides we knew she was a gentle soul and has a strong resume of experience. We brought Foxy along to our 2022 Minnesota Horse Expo to experience the sights... she did so well! Foxy gaited beautifully in the large indoor and outdoor arenas! Strollers and children didn't phase her. Stalling for 4 days straight didn't stress her. What a gem!
I was told from previous owners that she was a beginner safe "wife horse" from being started in Kentucky and sold to Texas where she lived for 5 years. From there she was a solid "elk hunting mount" for a beginner type older gentleman in Colorado for 4 years where she packed equipment and rode up and down the foothills encountering all the mountainous terrain and riding at elevation.
Our riding and training will continue to strengthen this mare after her extended time off and we will offer her for sale! Since she is already taking back to riding like a fish to water... She will be offered NOW! Inquiries and advanced purchase welcome....
LOW five figures for pricing.
TRAINING & BREEDING QUALITY ROCKY MOUNTAIN HORSES
You may notice that Foxy has 2-3 cosmetic changes to her body... From her previous owner in Texas, she was given the Rocking M brand on her lower left rear hindquarters. She also appears to have a scar (or botched brand) on her right upper haunch near her tail head. I also noticed that she appears to have a subtle amount of scar tissue and/or color change to her coat on her left front cannon bone that is barely noticeable with a winter coat. This older injury or change does not show up on a lameness exam and is barely palatable.
