Horse Description: ‘JJ’ is a stunning young lady with lots of chrome! She has appointed herself herd leader and she takes her responsibility of keeping all the girls safe when new mares are introduced. With that kind of responsibility, it is not a surprise that she gets a little anxiety every once and while, especially when her herd dynamics shift.

It is amazing how well she can focus and perform when given a task to accomplish; she might be a little bit of an overachiever! She is a lovely mover and very smooth to ride. She still needs a more experienced person that can think 5 steps ahead of her and have a plan in place for her to keep her focused. When given structure and a routine, this mare does quite well and is very pleasant to work around. JJ understands the rider’s aids and has a responsive ‘whoa’.

She is enthusiastic about trot poles and doesn’t really mind going over a bridge or even getting her legs clipped. She is great for needles, oral meds, is ok for the farrier as long as they work within her limits and are patient, good for grooming and bathing (especially if the water is warm).

*Rider weight limit of 175lb
