Cowboy or Endurance Rider Deluxe! I will start off by saying Farrah needs a VERY EXPERIENCED rider. I would like to find her a new home as she is being wasted standing in my pasture. She has not been ridden Fall 2014. She rides in just a bosal and has seen miles of trails and lots of cows. She is the best bush horse I have ever owned and when she gets chasing a cow through it you better duck, bend and hang on because she will do everything she can to stay on that cow even if you dont quite fit through the trees she fits through.
I rode Farrah all year three years ago (For one month in a flip flop with a half broken ankle and another month in a running shoe, all without my right stirrup) She saw it all from riding down the road, two weeks in the mountains, sorting pairs, moving bulls, checking pastures, tagging calves, loading yearlings through a crowding tub, loading a nasty cow on pasture and chasing 24 head through 2 quarters of bush when they got into a neighbors piece. She crosses rivers, goes in lakes, jumps off and on banks, will pack antlers out of the bush, saddle bags and slickers; ties (to the trailer all night, in tie stalls, to trees on the trails) hauls and loads in an angle haul or stock trailer, has been used to pony other horses, trims and shoes. This mare is meant to work and does her best when ridden regularly, like five hours a day seven days a week. Even with all of the hours she has seen she will still turn out from under you if you spook her, hence the very experienced rider. Sit in the middle of your saddle and ride her properly you wont ever have a problem with her. But she is not a horse you can flop around on or goof around on. She walks out and is always the fastest walking horse of the bunch. Many horses trot to keep up with her. She also trots out like a moose and would prefer to long trot than lope. If you like to cover ground and make a lot of miles under saddle this mare will do it. However she still does get a little worked up and nervous over some things, like umbrellas or the odd horse eating monster rock that just doesnt look the same as the last four you passed. She rides out by herself or in a group. She has done gates and chained panels together while the tractor is setting them in a row. I have roped off her once and she wasnt bothered by the rope, or the cow on the other end that was running up the rope instead of away from it, however I wouldnt pick up a rope on her until she has been put back to work. I have rode her in an english saddle, in a flat race at a local stampede. And as I said before she is a heck of a bush horse. Will go through anything you put her in no matter how thick it is. She will crawl her way through it and leave the other horses standing behind wondering how to catch up. Point her in the direction of home and she will get you there even if there isnt a good trail to follow.
Farrah has been on a regular farrier program since I have owned her. She does best with shoes on while being ridden as she had only ever had her feet done once when I bought her as a 5 year old so it took a long time to get them back to where they are now. She has good feet but they do tend to chip. She goes barefoot when I am not riding her and doesnt have a problem. She is dewormed regularly as well. She gets blanketed as she is a thin skinned horse (Comes from the thoroughbred in her) and needs to be blanketed in the winter as well as cold or wet weather. She also does best on free choice feed.
I only rode Farrah once in 2014, at Ya Ha Tinda. With no prior conditioning she did 22 hours in 5 days and never took a sore or lame step. She climbed all the hills, crossed all the rivers and was at the front of the group the whole way. This mare is as tough as they come and she doesnt break down. I also rode her once in the fall to get some video's for when I advertised her for sale. Farrah has not been ridden since as I was out of the country all winter and now due to non- horse related injuries I haven't been able to ride her.
Farrah is registered as ThisChickletsARebel and is sired by Private Dreamer, who goes back to Zippo Pine Bar; out of an appendix mare Scandal Lass. Both sire and dam are on allbreedpedigree. I would like to see this mare go to a good home where she will be used to her potential, but she is not an arena horse, she is a pasture/bush horse. I have penned on her a few times but that is the only arena riding she has had in six years. She would also make a good broodmare. Asking $2500 obo. If you are interested in her as a broodmare contact me and we can talk about a price.
