Description

Scout is a 15 year old Quarter Horse (aged by vet) type mare whose owner was struggling to get her to gain weight so we were asked to take her in.   Pictures show she is broke to ride with a hackamore, she is easy to handle and lead, loaded into the trailer nicely.  She can be slightly difficult to catch but we're working on it, and she's much better about her mouth being handled now that her teeth have been done.   Now that she's at a healthier weight she has been ridden and evaluated.  She's fun, very well broke, very responsive, and verbal cue trained.  She neck reins and was ridden in a halter walk/trot/canter.  She's reported to know barrells and turned on a dime when asked.  She rode out confident alone and will make a great riding partner for someone.  She still needs to gain a bit more weight and rebuild her topline, but she's ready to find her home!
