Description

It would be difficult to find a more prefect all-around horse than Treasure. She has completed nearly all of the Levels 1-4 of Parelli Natural Horsemanship. She has been ridden and excelled in cow working classes with Pat Parelli and in dressage classes with Linda Parelli. In the realm of cow work, she has experience in working cow horse, cutting, sorting, and herding. She has a lot of foundation in reining and dressage concepts and has been ridden bridleless. She is sensitive and responsive to the seat and leg—Just curl your toes for turns on the forehand or on the haunches. Exhale for stops and change your motion for transitions. Her forte is trail riding and trail obstacles. She is a master at gates, water crossing, stairs and difficult terrain. She even tails up steep hills. She has been patterned on barrels and poles but not formally competed. Current owner is a high level retired Parelli instructor, so Treasure has been used extensively for demonstrations to crowds up to 5000 and has traveled thousands of miles and maintains her weight and composure well in new environments. Although Treasure has training and experience comparable to a master’s degreee, she is calm and tolerant enough for a confident advanced beginner...my husband rode her on trails for two years. Of course she bathes, clips, deworms, is good for the farrier...she has been kept mostly barefoot but has been shod if necessary and has boots for short term needs.

No horse is truly perfect, so areas she is still developing are: she can be cinchy, especially after a long lay off...circling on line (lunging) will tell you when she is ok to proceed. She is not fond of jumping under saddle...maybe a reflection of me—I don’t like it much either. Sometimes on the trail she needs calm encouragement to cross bridges. She can be a little skeptic about new people out in the pasture, but over all she is friendly, gentle and will catch you once she gets to know you.

Treasure is currently located in Loveland, CO. I will be moving her to NM the last week in JAN.

Why am I selling such a superb animal that has been part of my life for 8 years? I have come to an age where I am not doing her justice. I have retired from traveling and giving clinics and lessons and have other interests that are keeping me from using or developing her talents. It is time for someone new to enjoy her. This has been a very difficult decision. Now that it’s made, the sooner the better. Price is negotiable to a good natural horsemanship home.
