CURRENTLY COMPETING and ready to ride. Christa is available and located in Davidsonville, Maryland. She is a GAITED mare that stands a hair under 15H, 8yo. NO DRAMA, NO BAGGAGE, this girl is the real deal. She is well gaited, and loves to work. She'll trail ride alone or in groups, has a set gait, canter and a big ground covering walk. She recently completed a 30 mile Distance Ride at Muckelratz despite oppressive heat under a nationally competitive rider as a catch ride (first time the rider had been on her back). Christa is fit and ready to ride. We could place her with a trail riding home, but she's got so much ability we would love to see her go to a home that is looking for an Endurance partner. SIX MONTHS of professional training has her fit and ready to work but without drama. She's solid, not spooky and appropriate for a confident intermediate or above. Oh, and she is also broke to drive!
Now here's the catch - ok, it's not really a catch at all!!! She is owned by GAIT, Inc.! That means she goes under an approved adoption Application and yes, there is no breeding, no rehome contract. She has been with us since December 2017 and has been in professional training since February with Elizabeth Farina, an experienced Endurance, Dressage and Gaited Horse trainer here in Maryland. Please don't let our Contract worry you, while it offers protection for our horse, it also provides you with a lot of protection as well! Want a horse with history, this mare has been all over trail riding, competing at several Distance events, she attended Horse World Expo in Harrisburg, PA in March as a demo horse. She's had a solid SIX months with Elizabeth out trail riding under multiple riders. She's a mid-herd type horse, no drama at home or on the trail. Easy heat cycles, she's not marish. She does like a rider that wants to bond with her, she's very sweet and personable. She has great seat and leg aids, lateral work, etc. She crosses bridges, water, you name it. Traffic safe, dog safe, trailer and loads great.
