6 Year Old Mare, Dressage prospect

Lady Sapphire “Lady” is now available for adoption! Lady is a 6 year old grade mare, who we believe would excel in the english world. Lady came to us as an owner surrender on May 14, 2024. She was surrendered due to no fault of her own, it was due to her owner’s health. Lady is about 14.2H (we haven’t officially measured her.) She does only have one eye, her left eye was removed due to infection years ago. Don’t let it fool you though, this girl has heightened senses, and it does not inhibit her at all. She is very body aware, and aware of her surroundings. She loves to connect with people, and is very social! She is a beautiful mover, and she likes to show that off!
We were told she was green broke, and started under saddle, so we went through our evaluation with her. She has a fantastic foundation. With that being said there are a few holes, and it seems those stem around energy vs. intention, but working on that will come with building connection and trust. She does fantastic with the saddling process. We saddled and unsaddled her several times trying different saddle fits. She is very round, and short backed, she seemed most comfortable in an english saddle. She is very smart, and with her age-she is ready to go any direction! She does get anxious with the vet, and picking up her back feet for the farrier, all of which we are currently working with her on. She loves to show off picking up her front feet. Once you gain her trust there isn’t anything she wouldn’t do for you. Lady is an easy keeper, and currently on a diet to help manage her weight, to keep her healthy. We have videos of her if you are interested in them
