Description

Dex is a curious and easy going mare who has great ground manners. She follows people around like a puppy and loves all sort of treats. She is easy to catch and work with, loves to be groomed, is good for a bath.  She has been a broodmare for the past several years but appears to have training in her past, as she accepts a saddle and rider and responds to leg cues.  She needs a refresher and rides, but she's calm and solid, to the point of almost being lazy.  She does not like a bit, however, and we are at this point evaluating her in just a halter as she is much more relaxed and willing without a bit. She came in to GSH with a bad abscess on her hind leg which has healed nicely with no lasting effects, however she was difficult to trim her hind feet for a couple of attempts.  We used Ace and were able to trim her fine the last time, and now she's picking up all four feet again just fine.   Dex will make someone who is willing to just put in the time refreshing her training a very nice horse.
