Looking for someone willing to do a lease to own agreement. Asking $2000 but will increase as I work her more. Mattie is a very special horse to me and I am particular about where she goes, but due to changes in life, I no longer have proper time to give her. She is one of the sweetest and prettiest horses I have ever seen; with a heart of gold. She tries her best in everything she does. Mattie can be sensitive at times when learning new things and appreciates someone who can reassure her, be patient and gentle while teaching her. I have put several kids or new riders on her, but she performs best with someone who has some experience and confidence. She is a well rounded OHSET team competition horse; having competed for 3 years at district, state and regional levels. She loves working cattle; having done team penning and sorting. She is not your typical "always hot Arab" but does get a little excited and hot when running her in gymkhanas or drill. I have ridden her western on trails, around my ranch, in arenas, and on the beach. She has also been ridden hunt seat and dressage; with dedicated training and time I believe she could be quite competitive in both. Though she is 19, going on 20, she is still ready to jump right in to whatever you ask and has a lot left to give. She has been used in a therapy program to help disabled kids learn skills while riding. Unfortunately she did not stay very long, but only due to extensive training which made her more sensitive to when the kids would constantly squeeze, giving her cues to go faster; other than that everyone loved her and her personality. No vices, kick, bite; only "bucks" (really throws a very mild fit) if she is in pain and needing adjustment; stands tied for farrier, bathing, clipping, saddling; trailers well; rarely spooks, but if she does her reactions are very mild. Submissive mare to people and almost all horses; but will fend off other horses away from any sick or injured horses.
Currently I am treating her left eye for mild inflammation and corneal scarring. I don't know the cause of the initial injury of which was discovered with her eyelid swollen shut and decent drainage (our best guess is she wacked it hard on something out in the pasture). The vet confirmed there is no glaucoma or uveitis; so we are simply treating it with anti-inflammatories systemically and ointment in her eye. She does have a small corneal scare of which I was told by the vet, would go away over time. So far it is responding well to treatement.
Mattie has had some mild back issues due to an accident that happened many years ago from a Percheron/QH falling on her. It really has not affected her much overall, as I have been able to do drill, cow-work, and gaming very well on her. As long as she is maintained well with proper nutrition, stretching techniques that have been adapted for her, occasional massage (if possible) and chiropractic work, while being work
