Barbican’s Mist, 2011 15.3h+ bay mare

This stocky, solid bodied and beautiful lady could easily masquerade as a quarter horse or warmblood!  Barbican’s Mist was described by both her owner/trainer and the handler who showed her to us as a sweetheart, a very good girl who is nice to ride, nice to handle, and sound with no history of any injuries or issues.  We admired her kind, sweet expression, her cute face and intelligent kind eye, and her perfect behavior — she definitely won the hearts of our volunteers!  The person who showed her to us has ponied her in morning training and to the races, and told us  she is a kind sweetheart to work with — a horse she wishes she had room for to take on as her own.  Barbican Mist came to Finger Lakes and her current owner/trainer in late April, and we were told that she arrived with her feet in neglected overgrown condition. They pulled her shoes and trimmed her feet just two days before we photographed her, and she was still a bit foot sore moving barefoot on the pavement, so we got walk video only.  But we watched videos of her winning races and observed lovely balanced, fluid and flat kneed movement at the gallop and trot.  We think Barbican Mist could go in any direction — best friend and trail companion, show hunter, lower level eventing, barrels, pleasure –whatever you want!  She is a granddaughter of A.P Indy on her sire’s side, and of Blushing Groom and Raja Baba on her dam’s side.  We think she is one of the bargains of this year or any year!
