Senorita Lia ("Rita") has been a family favorite since she was born. She has always been beautiful - very much a Spanish horse only with 1/4 Arab giving her refinement that many of the purebred Andalusian mares don't have. She has awesome movement, but her temperament's even better. She's sweet, kind, and smart. My kids nicknamed her "Lovey" early on.
Rita's been started gently under saddle and is being ridden daily until she sells. As of the day I posted this (July 3) she happily "trail rides" around the farm yard, and practices her turns and transitions chasing cows.
She's been raised on huge western pastures with prairie dog holes and badlands, and she's lived on an old ranch with rusty barbwire fences and scrap metal all over the place, but she's never had a scratch or any injury. She is extremely sensible.
Rita loads easily in trailers, stands quietly for the farrier, has always been barefoot, doesn't even blink when wormed or vaccinated, and stands quietly when tied or mounted. She's perfectly fine with people on her back -- she's never attempted to buck, rear, kick, or bite. She's used to dogs, bicycles, four-wheelers, trains, train tracks, tractors, cattle, buffalo, and water.
This is a mare for a rider who wants the ultimate horse. She is tall and strong and athletic enough for the most discriminating rider. She'll turn heads where ever she goes, and she'll be a horse which even the most experienced rider will enjoy.
