Riata is a 15hh, est. 5-year-old Paint mare that is unrideable due to an old, cold fetlock injury as a filly. She moves soundly when unmounted and has no trouble moving on the previously injured leg, but she cannot be ridden (even by children) and cannot carry a foal.
Riata has been in training for 90 days with a professional trainer. Riata is smart and has learned to be brave and trust her handlers. She has been exposed to all the questions she might see in a new home and she bathes, loads, stands tied, and is quiet for grooming and the farrier.
She has learned to navigate mountain trail obstacles in-hand and has been over ditches, banks, bridges, teeter-totters, water complexes and streams, and can be led comfortably by a handler in a motorized wheel chair. She has longe lined and has worn a surcingle and bareback pad, and has worked on the ground with a bit and bridle.
In the herd, Riata is low-man, so she may do best in a barn with runs or individual paddocks. She is a striking horse who deserves to have a family of her own. We think she would be an excellent candidate for a career as a therapy horse, driving, or competitive mountain trail.
