Theresa, the mare we did the under saddle Facebook live posts of over the past few weeks, is now available for adoption. She still continues to progress each week with the occasional reminder that she is just a 3 year old, so some rides are more distracted than others, but she is learning to work at a quieter pace and a more relaxed frame as her focus increases. When relaxed she carries a nice natural forward rhythm with more go than whoa, driving nicely from behind. There are also hints of a more self-assured mare in there that will develop as she matures. Theresa is learning to balance at the canter in the smaller indoor arena, but does fine in the larger outdoor arena, but to watch her play in turn out is to watch an incredibly athletic, catlike mare who has amazing moves so it will eventually translate to her under saddle ability as well. Theresa will be suitable for most disciplines.
Theresa gets along well with the 2 other mares she goes to turn out with and she does best with a mare(s) that will be her buddy and protector. She would not do well turned out alone or being the only horse on the property. At feeding time or when concerned about something Theresa is a stall walker when worried about something so she might like being out most of the day or possibly 24/7.
