Ashton & Betty

BETTY IS SO RELAXED AND CONTENTED! She is just so quiet, calm and still like with all her movements……and sweet as can be!

BETTY (6 yr. – 14.1) – is a beautifully marked, sweet, very, very broke, calm, quiet mare!   She has shown no marish behaviors…..and she runs great in the pasture with both mares and geldings.  She is the humble one….doesn’t want anything to do with trouble and will walk away…………………Betty mounts from the mtg. block – picnic table, or wherever,….and she stands and waits to be told to move!   She came from the mountains of Eastern Ky. on the Va. line…..hills, creeks, wildlife, steep trails, are just some of the challenging places Betty has been ridden!  Since being here, she has been exposed to a barking, nipping at the heels dog,………….tractor, manure spreader, heavy equipment, and a four lane highway!!  with heavy traffic including semi’s releasing their air brakes and blowing their horns as they do when they see us out riding horses!  Loaded log trucks, sirens, – and countless other vehicles!!   Our horses are traffic broke for sure! ————Betty loves attention…..she is so very loving as you can see in the photos!   .Betty has big, beautiful, soft eyes,……She loves her baths and is so easy to do all things with!  She is easy to shoe, catch, and walks right on the trailer.   You will love how Betty rides!  And her sloooow motion walk is amazing!  She will gait and come right back down to that slow walk without hesitation.  Betty loves to please and she will do whatever her rider wants!  Including, walking through brush and making new trails!  She is naturally gaited! Goes from her walk into her gait!! And so Very Smooth!!!  She does gait barefoot, rides double and bareback!————————Betty’s previous owner, Danny, said he has owned Betty since she was two years old, and the only thing she ever spooked at was a turkey flew out and she just jumped to the side a little…….set her head up, ears perked.   He says that is the only time she did that.   And since we have had her here, we have never had her to spook or jump or do anything negative. …………She will ride front, middle or back….and she will walk off on a different trail away from the group!   We do that here, too…..just to make sure of their behavior.——–Our girls absolutely love Betty and you will, too!  She has an amazing loving personality and she is SO dependable with a lot of head sense!!   Betty is an amazing horse for the entire family!!!———————–We appreciate your viewing our videos and reading our ads.

Betty is so very affectionate! She loves hugs and attention!


Betty loves to sniff your face, your hair….she is so very snuggly!

You couldn’t ask for a prettier mare!! Her mane and tail are both very thick and long! She loves to be groomed!!

Betty is the same 24/7, even when you don’t ride her for months! She is safe for small children to catch and lead……in the crossties she stands so still….she is so aware of smaller children when they are grooming her…..
