Description

Rose is a strikingly beautiful American Mustang, bay mare. She is under saddle and was ridden western extensively over the last four years. We originally rescued Rose from a loving home that had just too many crises to deal with the horses. Her one owner had put her under saddle using natural horsemanship training methods and trail riding primarily. However, when she was seven, Rose’s mom walked away and didn’t come back. Rose and her buddies were cared for by a kind landowner until she too was unable to handle the weight of the responsibility. During those three years, Rose was not ridden, haltered or handled other than being petted over the fence. The day we arrived to pick them up (Rose was 9 years old at this point) Rose was one of the first horses to let us catch her. She haltered and loaded great. She has been like that ever since. We adopted her within a month to an experienced rider and she went off to live right next door to the Creeper Trail in Virginia. This her second owner had her for four years and rode her extensively--on trails and the Creeper Trail—until her second owner was unable to care for her anymore and back she came to us. Rose is great!! I mean great!!! But she is not a beginner horse. She wants someone she can respect, someone with clear boundaries. She’d be great for a beginner to ride her with an intermediate rider but not alone. She is incredibly safe and well mannered she just knows her mind. If you have not been around mustangs they are not like other horse breeds. And to fully appreciate them you need to understand those differences. .
