Nothing to beware of with this “red mare!” A quick break in the winter weather in Western New York allowed our volunteers to have a delightful outdoor meet and greet with Dixie and what a pleasant, intelligent and kind hearted mare she was for our volunteers. This mare was placed to a new home off of the racetrack this fall where she was turned out, let down and was being lightly started by an experienced young teen who was working with her trainer. Though her training was going well, the family situation changed and Dixie’s racetrack connections stepped up to help her find a new forever home. She is described as incredibly smart– this mare knows her people and wants to please. She has been turned out in large groups and with a partner and does well with friends– she would not do well as an “only horse” situation. She is currently barefoot and is described as sound and clean legged. We observed flowing, correct, good-strided movement that would surely do well in any discipline despite jogging barefoot on frozen, rocky ground. Dixie’s connections believe that she’s the type of horse that could take the RRP competition by storm and compete in several different rings and excel– she is eligible for the competition this year! She was very quiet and well mannered even with a young colt acting rather excitedly a few feet away. Her trainer reports she has no vices. Dixie is by Freefourinternet out of a Strike the Gold mare.
Price: $1,000, very negotiable to an excellent home. References must be provided and will be checked.
