-GYPSY – (7 yr. old – 14.3) is a beautiful mirror shine bay with 4 white stockings! She belongs to my son-in-law and we have had her for two years. He owns his own business and due to work, he does not have time to ride….and too,……riding is not his passion……so it is on bottom of the list of things he would rather do! ( : We did not ride her all winter, and to my surprise, she was amazingly calm. Gypsy is a very smart mare….she listens and she responds to voice command when it comes to stopping and slowing down from a faster gait (she has this and it is smooth!!!—AND SHE CANTERS!!!!). **Gypsy’s negative trait is – sometimes when you stop her and ask her to stand still and wait……most of the time, she won’t. (You can see this behavior in the videos). It is nothing quick or bad…..it just might intimidate timid riders. She has never reared, bucked, kicked or done anything hurtful…..she is just impatient sometimes, especially if it is unbearably hot and she is tired.—–When she does this, you just walk her in a circle, stop and she will then usually stand. Another negative trait is when she has not been ridden for months, she will step off when mounting. We have found when she does this, if we just slowly work with her a few days she will then –most of the time but not consistent- stand to mount. ————-For these two reasons, we will be recommending her for confident riders. You can be an intermediate rider “if you have confidence”. She is not for children or young riders. Both of these negative traits are minor….but we specialize in horses and ponies for Special Needs, both children an adults. To these type of riders, what is minor to many of us can be major.——Gypsy is in your face when it comes to being caught!! She loves attention and she loves to be close….(you can see this in her video #004). She is a mare that neighs when she sees you in the yard….and comes to the gait wanting you to come over to her! She is the sweetest mare,……VERY!! curious, nosy,…with sniffing your clothes while you are saddling her,….turning and watching what you are doing,…..and she is into everything if you allow her to be loose in the hallway!—-She is a very funny mare and she will make you laugh!!!!——-Gypsy loves her baths…..she is easy to shoe, clip, saddle, bridle, and walks right on the trailer. She has run with different mares and geldings while here and does fine. With some she was boss….with others she wasn’t. She never was aggressive at trying to be the boss.——-We purchased her from a family that told us their five year old granddaughter rode Gypsy following behind their horses when trail riding. She leads behind another horse and follows great!——Gypsy is AN AMAZING TRAIL RIDING MARE!!! And she will canter! As you can see, she is photogenic……very beautiful!———She has the sweetest personality…always so alert and wants to be so close!————————————We appreciate your viewing our videos and reading our ads.
