Description

Retired 4 Star Parelli instructor needs to rehome personal dream horse. I am no longer able to offer her the interaction she desires and thrives on. A product of the renown Atwood Ranch breeding program in Red Bluff, CA, "JoyFull" has completed Parelli Level 3 and some of Level 4. She works obstacles on a long line, loves playing at liberty and, under saddle, is responsive to seat and leg as demonstrated by snappy departures and graceful transitions, turns on the forehand and on the haunches and leg yields and half passes. She has some of the nicest gaits (especially her canter) of any horse I've ridden in my 40 plus years of working with horses.

I don't have any recent videos of her...all the videos are of her as a 2 year old in the early part of her training. She has many more and more refined skills now, but these videos give you a little idea of her temperament, playfulness/sassiness, and confidence. The more recent pictures (lighter color) show how she has developed into quite a lovely mare with size and bulk.

She has traveled quite a lot around the country with me and takes new environments calmly and maintains her weight well. Of course, she bathes, clips, deworms and stands well for the farrier. She will meet you in the pasture just to see who you are. She has had exposure to cattle and driving them. She has been ridden on trails all across the country. She has also been ridden in Pat Parelli's Master Class which included quite a lot of rein work with contact and though the bit was quite new to her at the time, she took it all in stride. She rides in a halter, hackamore, snaffle or no bridle at all.

I had thought she would be in my life, her whole life. This has been a very difficult decision for me. I want her to have the best life she can and I believe that is with someone who will enjoy her talents and quirks as much as I have, but am no longer able to do.

As a 2 year old she was valued at $18,000. I am open to offers from natural horsemanship homes.
